International Training Workshop
The Task Group on Preservation of and Access to Scientific and Technical Data in/for/with Developing Countries, Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA-PASTD), established in 2002, has provided a much-needed focus on the data preservation and archiving practices of developing countries. The PASTD has been engaging in promoting and enhancing the worldwide cooperation in ICTs and research data and in developing open knowledge environments for international science and sustainability in developing countries. International workshops and training sessions toward these goals have been held in a region series of the workshops during the last 15 years, including in China (Beijing, Shanghai) and Mongolia (Ulaanbaatar) of Asia, South Africa (Pretoria) and Kenya (Nairobi) of African, Cuba (Havana) of Caribbean region, , as well as Brazil (Sao Paulo), Columbia(Bogotá) and Mexico (Mexico city) of American. The CODATA-PASTD focus on the following objectives:
Since the 1970s, scientific data sharing has received extensive attention. A series of international data organizations/programs, national data centers have been established and started, such as the (CODATA), World Data Center or System (WDC), Group on Earth Observations (GEO), Research Data Alliance (RDA), Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF), Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs), Global Change Master Directory (GCMD), NIH Data Sharing Repositories, Data Observation Network for Earth (DataOne), INSPIRE, The Canadian Earth Observation Network (GeoNET), China National Science and Technology Infrastructure and so on. However, from the perspective of global, most of developing countries with disadvantages of being start late and slow progress on national development, which eventually resulted in scientific data sharing mainly concentrates in developed countries. This exerts a serious impact on scientific research and regional sustainable development cooperation among developing countries.
At present, China is implementing "Belt and Road Initiatives”, which raised the initiative of "peace and cooperation, openness and inclusiveness, mutual learning and mutual benefit" spirit. Developing counties should be jointly built through consultation to meet the interests of all, and efforts should be made to integrate the development strategies. In order to achieve this prospect, we need to strengthen the sharing cooperation of scientific data at the first place, and promote scientific data sharing and exchange such as national basic geography, ecological environment resources and social economy resources along the route countries.
Data Publication as a new mode of data sharing that has emerged all over the world in recent years, which provides an equal, open and freedom data sharing environment for scientists. It publishes data in Internet and Journals by Digital Object Unique Identifier-DOI, which can effectively protect data authors’ intellectual property and greatly motivate researchers to share and release data voluntarily.
The training course aims to unify the understanding and significance of scientific data sharing, uniform thestandards and specification of scientific data sharing, particularly the standards and specification of data publication. And develop dozens of enthusiastic young scientists so as to form a scientific data sharing platform cored by data publication system in the global developing countries.
Training course mainly consists of a series of lectures cover following themes:
