Propelled by FORCE: FORCE11 Working Groups

19th April 2016

5 Minute Presentations


Annotating All Knowledge Working Group – Dan Whaley

This group supports the Annotating All Knowledge project, a coalition of some of the world’s key scholarly publishers, platforms, libraries, and technology organizations to create an open, interoperable annotation layer over content.

Attribution Working Group – Melissa Haendel, Karen Gutzman, Stacy Konkiel

This group focuses on provisioning attribution methods for people and organizations for any scholarly products, including publications, datasets, data standards, software, research resources, etc. The goal is to coordinate community efforts and pilot test implementations.

Data Citation Implementation Pilot (DCIP) – Tim Clark

Funded by the NIH BD2K bioCADDIE project, this group’s primary goal is to conduct a pilot project with publishers, repositories and identifier/metadata services, those who are early adopters of data citation according to the Joint Declaration of Data Citation Principles (JDDCP).

FORCE11-RDA BioSharing – Susanna Sansone

This group will map the landscape of the community-developed standards and work on principles for linking information about databases, content standards and journal and funder policies in the life sciences.

Resource Identification Initiative – Anita Bandrowski

The initiative is a project designed to help researchers cite the key resources used to produce scientific findings reported in the biomedical literature using an RRID. To date over 100 publications are participating. 

Resource Identification Technical Specifications – Julie McMurray, John Deck

This group is a follow-on group to the Resource Identification Initiative. The goals are to develop a technical specification for expanding and enabling a robust, community-wide implementation of an identifier strategy for research resources.

Software Citation – Arfon Smith, Dan Katz, Kyle Niemeyer

The software citation working group will review existing initiatives working on software citation and will produce a set of principles, illustrated with working examples, and a plan for dissemination and distribution.
