NEEO's Data Curation

Presenter 1
Paul Plaatsman
Erasmus University, Rotterdam

Nereus is a consortium of prestigious European libraries in the world of academic economics. At present the consortium concentrates its efforts on a EU funded project called NEEO (Network of European Economists Online) which will address the lack of integration of academic output by creating a powerful new research tool called Economists Online. With this tool it will give access to 50,000 journal articles, working papers, book chapters, conference proceedings and primary datasets of leading European Economists. One of the work packages of the project is entirely devoted to datasets. The three main objectives of this work packages are: To disclose and link the research data of publications of leading economists in Europe on the Internet To make these datasets openly accessible and freely available To make an inventory of the problems involved in the disclosure of primary research data To do so NEEO partners will store datasets in their Institutional Repositories, describe the datasets to the DDI standard and harvest the metadata for the Economists Online portal. The NEEO data workgroup will use the results of the enriched publications project "Together in Sharing" which was presented at last year IASSIST conference at Stanford.
