EEE Big Data Workshop on Challenges & Issues on Scholarly Big Data Discovery and Collaboration (SBD 2014) | beamtenherrschaft
" ... Academics and researchers worldwide continue to produce large numbers of scholarly documents including papers, books, technical reports, etc. and associated data such as tutorials, proposals, lab note books, and course materials. The abundance of data sources enables researchers to study scholarly collaboration at a very large scale. The ever increasing diversity of disciplines and complexity of research problems, particularly multi-disciplinary research, requires collaboration. Besides the traditional venues of collaboration where scholars typically meet annually at conferences or meetings, the Internet provides a wide range of platforms for scholars to engage with other scholars. These new platforms include academic sites such as Academia.edu, ResearchGate and Mendeley, more interactive social sites such as Twitter and Facebook, and Wiki-style virtual collaboration sites. These services allow scholars to share academic resources, exchange opinions, follow each other's re! search, keep up with current research trends, and build their professional networks. Researchers increasingly realize that scholarly achievements should not merely be the final published articles. The datasets used in this study and many other intermediary results are equally important for supporting research. Therefore, a set of rapidly developing research topics, research data management, data curation/stewardship, data sharing policy, etc. are becoming important issues for research communities. The workshop aims at bringing together researchers with diverse interdisciplinary backgrounds interested in scholarly big data ..."
