Thomson Reuters Tackles Open Access Datasets With Data Citation Index
by Nancy K. Herther
This month, Thomson Reuters began a soft launch of its new Data Citation Index, which is intended as "a comprehensive view of scholarly research bringing research data into the same arena as the published literature it supports. In combination with other resources available on the Web of Knowledge platform, researchers can access critical information from the leading scholarly journals, books, and conference proceedings and now data." In an interview with NewsBreaks, Chris Burghardt, the company's vice president for product and market strategy, noted that, "Data Citation Index offers a significant value particularly within the broader context of the Web of Knowledge."

Weekly News Digests
Report Issued on Open Access Repository Interoperability
The Confederation of Open Access Repositories (COAR) published "The Current State of Open Access Repository Interoperability (2012)." Interoperability is the technical "glue" that makes possible the emerging open science infrastructure—an infrastructure that connects a global, decentralized network of repositories and other tools. While technology exists to make possible this integration, the landscape around interoperability at first sight may appear chaotic, confusing, and complex. This report is designed to make sense of the interoperability landscape. It focuses on services that are possible because of interoperability and presents specific interoperability initiatives in connection to these services.

"We're mobile, we're digital and we're making knowledge available to people whenever and wherever they need it."

Concrete Steps Toward a Digital Public Library of America
by Paula J. Hane
The dream of a national digital public library is inching closer to reality. The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) initiative was launched in December 2010 with generous support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Since then it has been working to transition from a planning initiative to a fully independent 501(c)(3) organization and has crafted a draft job outline for DPLA Executive Director. The DPLA plans to make the cultural and scientific heritage of humanity available, free of charge, to all via a large-scale digital library.
