Data Sharing on the Web

February 5th, 2010 by Lisa Green

The February issue of Talis’ Nodalities magazine focuses on data sharing and includes an article by Science Commons’ own Kaitlin Thaney.

Last October, Kaitlin joined Jordan Hatcher, Leigh Dodds and Tom Heath to give a four hour tutorial titled “Legal and Social Frameworks for Sharing Data on the Web” at the International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC).  The tutorial covered the legal and social issues commonly found in data publishing, using the Linked Data Cloud as a leading example of how copyright restrictions, complex licenses and lack of clarity can quickly exacerbate problems for data sharing efforts.

Wish you could have been there? Me too.  Luckily for us, all four of the tutorial leaders are composing their thoughts on data sharing for articles in Nodalities.  Kaitlin produced a great piece for this month’s issue called Data Sharing on the Web .  Be sure to check it out! The hardcopy version of the February Nodalities is not out yet, but you can read it online here.
