Hello world! And welcome!

This blog is for and about the activities of the international CODATA community.


  • An international community and network of expertise on research data issues.
  • An influential and authoritative voice in national and international policy regarding scientific data management.
  • A focal point for international, cross-disciplinary collaboration and communication on key scientific data issues.

codata_logoSo on this blog you will be able to find out about CODATA’s Data Policy Committee and our activities to help define an international policy agenda for scientific data; about initiatives to push the frontiers of data science (through an international workshop series, our Task Groups, Special Activities, biannual conference and our Data Science Journal); and, about our advocacy and support for data issues in international scientific programmes like Future Earth.

A notable feature of this blog will be guest posts from the CODATA community, from expert data scientists working on a range of fascinating projects.  Otherwise, posts will be written by Simon Hodson, Executive Director of CODATA.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
