Why digital scholarship?

“An article about a computational result is advertising, not scholarship. The actual scholarship is the full software environment, code, and data that produce the result” - Claerbout and Karrenbach, Proceedings of the 62nd Annual International Meeting of the Society of Exploration Geophysics, 1992

FAIR data principles aim to facilitate knowledge discovery by assisting humans and machines in their discovery of, access to, integration and analysis of, task-appropriate scientific data and their associated algorithms and workflows

Scientific Paper of the Future Initiative is an initiative to encourage geoscientists, although applicable to neuroscientists, to publish papers together with the following associated digital products of their research:

  • Data requirements: Making data available in a public repository, including documented metadata, a clear license specifying conditions of use, and citable using a unique and persistent identifier

  • Software requirements: Making software available in a public repository, with documentation, a license for reuse, and a unique and citable persistent identifier. This includes not only modeling software, but also other ancillary software for data reformatting, data conversions, data filtering, and data visualization

  • Provenance requirements: Documenting the provenance of results by explicitly describing the series of computations and their outcome in a workflow sketch, a formal workflow, or a provenance record, possibly in a shared repository and with a unique and persistent identifier

The Resource Identification Initiative enables resource transparency within the biomedical literature through promoting the use of unique Research Resource Identifiers (RRIDs). In addition to being unique, RRIDs meet three key criteria, they are: machine readable, free to generate and access, and consistent across publishers and journals. Learn more
