ALPSP & Digital Preservation Coalition's seminar to discuss research data preservation

The Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) and the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP) have organized a seminar on March 8 in London with the aim of examining the “emerging trends in scholarly communication from the perspective of the publication and long-term access to the scholarly record.” 

Access is not a one time event, it’s an ongoing process. This seminar will examine emerging trends in scholarly communication from the perspective of the publication and long-term access to the scholarly record. This includes outputs not traditionally included within the primary scientific canon such as metadata, software and research data.

The academic community has been quick to adopt digital technology. Many of the technologies we now take for granted derive from the desire of the researchers to communicate more and better, the need for students to learn more flexibly and the need for teachers to guide more assiduously. Publishers and librarians have responded to meet these changing demands and the supply chain connecting researchers has been transformed in the last twenty years. This generation has seen a revolution in the scholarly record and scholarly communication. It’s mostly been for the good but challenges remain. Considerable attention has been paid to issues of ‘access’ whether in economic (subscription, green or gold routes), social (developing communities, citizen science and crowd-sourcing) or qualitative terms (research data management, version control and data sharing). But advocates on all sides recognise that access is not an event; it’s a process. 

The day will encourage the exchange of ideas and discuss possible solutions or collaborations to issues. Participants will have clarity on the various moving parts that make up the digital research record, which will enable them to develop relevant policies and support for authors, editors and other clients. They will have increased knowledge and access to networks that will support scenario-planning and product development going forward.
