The Literature-Data Connection: Meaning, Infrastructure and Impact
Special Session
Wednesday, May 25, 2011, 10:00 AM -11:30 AM
This special session will provide a forum for data providers, publishers and scientists to review the current efforts in the curation and preservation of astronomical data products published with or analyzed in scholarly publications. Speakers will be addressing a range of issues related to the publication and preservation of data products, namely: Nomenclature: how to uniquely name and refer to all digital assets (archival and user-provided); Persistence: what underlying technology should be used to manage the resolution of identifiers (Handles, DOIs, IVOA identifiers); Preservation: where user-provided data and metadata is stored, how to implement validation, verification, migration and versioning; Policies: what are the responsibilities of all parties involved in the publication process: authors, editors, archives, projects; Dissemination: ensuring that the metadata for all digital assets collected and preserved as part of this effort are properly exposed to the VAO and IVOA community to facilitate harvesting, indexing and discovery. Invited speakers will be from leading institutions, societies and projects involved in the curation and archival of astronomical publications, data and metadata.
