What are we looking for in the Data Science Journal special collection?
The CODATA Data Science Journal special collection aims to gather and promote research results and outcomes stemming from the Research Data Alliance activities. In particular, it collects high quality papers describing the latest results of RDA working groups (WGs) or interest groups (IGs) focusing particularly on use cases that highlight the added value of the RDA solutions for different challenges related to research data sharing and management. The submitted manuscripts might present, without being limited to, the following themes:
- The results (RDA Recommendations, Supporting Outputs or Other Outputs) produced by an Interest or Working Group;
- The description of an Adoption Case outlining how a specific recommendation or output has been implemented in a given use case;
- Other types of work related to RDA activities.
