In Data

Last week, my colleague Ian Mulvany posted on Nascent an entry about NSF’s recent call for proposals on DataNet (aka “A Sustainable Digital Data Preservation and Access Network”). Peter Brantley, of DLF, has set up a public group DataNet on Nature Network where all are welcome to join in the discussion on what NSF effectively are viewing as the challenge of dealing with “big data”. As Ian notes in a mail to me:

“It seems that for a fully integrated flow of data then publisher involvement is going to be required, and it is clear from the proposal that the NSF are also interested in rights management or at negotiating that issue.”
