Data Access for the Open Access Literature: PLOS’s Data Policy | PLOS - http://www.plos.org/data-ac...
"PLOS is now releasing a revised Data Policy that will come into effect on March 1, 2014, in which authors will be required to include a data availability statement in all research articles published by PLOS journals" - Deborah Fitchett

That is probably the most meaningful and useful infographic I have ever seen. Thanks! - Walt Crawford
I admit I thought of you when I saw it. :-) - Deborah Fitchett
Reporting a crime to the police (aka my #roastbusters post) - http://deborahfitchett.com/blog...
For those outside New Zealand: I've put a trigger warning on this post, but there ought to also be an even bigger one on that hashtag for discussion of rape and the reporting thereof. - Deborah Fitchett
My first foray into coding with open data - http://deborahfitchett.com/blog...
"The ReDBox (Research Data Box) system provides organisations with the ability to describe research data and make these descriptions (metadata) available to national/global registers. These registers allow researchers from around the world to locate and access research data. Primarily a research data registry, ReDBox provides workflows and interfaces for the creation of metadata. It is assumed that the actual research data (which can be very large) is hosted via another service. However, ReDBox does allow for the upload of data as well as supporting evidence files (e.g licences or IP statements)." - Deborah Fitchett

PREQUEL moves your data to SQLite3. The aim is to enable sophisticated queries over data that is currently stored in the wild as JSON, CSV and spreadsheet form. It is inspired by SQLShare, which aims to empower people by enabling them to access to a raw query interface. PREQUEL differs markedly however though, in that it seeks to give people access to structured data on their own machine rather than need to do that via the cloud. - Deborah Fitchett

Creating charts with Datawrapper - http://blog.martinfenner.org/2013...
"Datawrapper does three things: it makes it easy to generate charts, it allows you to embed them directly into your webpage (using an tag), and it is Open Source software (MIT license, Github repo here) so that you can help improve the code and host this service on your own." - Deborah Fitchett
Data management plans: what are they and how libraries can help. - http://ir.canterbury.ac.nz/handle...
"Formal data management plans (DMPs) are becoming required for projects funded through UK and EU sources. Data sets are increasingly being expected to accompany papers in order to encourage re-analysis and scholarly transparency, and DMPs outline expectations of how datasets will be presented as final research outputs. Considerations for a DMP include : format, privacy, licensing and re-use restrictions, archiving, persistent identification and compliance to funder’s and institutional policies. Support for researchers creating DMPs can come from collaboration between University librarians, research support offices and ICT departments to create services that fit research needs. Some Universities (Duke University, M.I.T., Edinburgh, Oxford) now have data librarians to support this work. At University of Canterbury we are investigating how UC Library can support researchers in development of DMPs. Up-skilling and advocacy will be required in order for Libraries to provide Library Guides,... - Deborah Fitchett
