Second Workshop on "Linking and Contextualizing Publications and Datasets"
On "Growing a Global Data Publishing Culture"

City University of London
London, UK, September 12th, 2014
Web site:

In conjunction with Digital Libraries 2014 (

International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries (TPDL 2014)

Proceedings published as special issue of the D-Lib Magazine Journal (

###### Workshop Objectives ######

The goal of this workshop is to provide researchers and practitioners in the fields of Digital Libraries, e-Science, and e-Research, with a forum where they can constructively explore foundational, organizational and systemic challenges in contexts having publishing, interlinking, preservation, discovery, access, and reuse of publications and datasets as focal points. It expects to contribute to the actual picture of the state of the art approaches and solutions that researchers and practitioners active in these fields have investigated and realized. Inspired by the indications resulting from the plenary discussion of the first edition of the workshop (TPDL 2013, Malta), special attention this year will be drawn towards research activities aimed at consolidating and building a common understanding of "data publishing".

###### Invited Speakers ######

Prof. Andreas Rauber, Vienna University of Technology. Talk title: "Linking to and Citing Data in Non-Trivial Settings"

Stefan Kramer, American University. Talk title: "“Linking research data and publications: a survey of the landscape in the social sciences”"

###### Workshop topics ######

The workshop welcomes submissions reporting on theoretical, systemic, and foundational work targeting popular topics of linking and contextualizing datasets and publications. The topics of this workshop are of interest to, but not limited to, the following research avenues:

[Growing a Global Data Publishing Culture]
- Data papers and dataset peer-review: discipline specific or general-purpose approaches, data journals ideas, etc
- Data publishing workflows: publishing workflows, data publishing policies, validation steps
- Data citation: dataset metadata, dataset granularity, citation for rewards, citation for re-use, interlinking with publications.
- Dataset contextualization: data models, tools, semantic enrichment for better discovery, re-use and quality evaluation.

[General topics]
- Metadata formats for publications and datasets: interlinking or contextualizing research outputs.
- Metadata access services: exporting/discovering metadata to facilitate interlinking or contextualizing research outputs.
- Data models expressing relationships between publications, datasets and other information apt for re-use, contextualization, etc.
- Aggregation services: robust and scalable collection, integration, storage, interlinking, and visualization of heterogeneous objects and metadata from publication, dataset, and contextual content data sources
- Linking and contextualization services: processing/mining interlinked objects and metadata relative for enrichment, disambiguation, annotation
- Future publication models and services: novel concepts and management of "enhanced publications", "research objects", "executable papers".

###### Important Dates ######

Research paper submission: June 30th, 2014 - 23:59 CET
EXTENDED DEADLINE: July 10th, 2014 - 23:59 CET

Notification of acceptance: July 31st, 2014

###### Paper Submission ######

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers. Submitted manuscripts will have to be in the range of 4000-5000 words and edited OpenOffice Writer or Microsoft Word, following the "Matters of style" section in the author guidelines for D-Lib Magazine ( Submission is online at: (EasyChair on-line system: you need to register an account to submit).

Papers submitted to the workshop will undergo a single-blind peer-review process by Program Committee members. Accepted papers will be published as a special issue of the D-Lib Magazine journal, in January 2015. To be published on the proceedings, accepted contributions should be revised according to the reviews and consider the feedbacks from the workshops. Moreover, at least one author is required to register (before August 11th, 2014) and present the paper at the workshop.
