When & Where
DataCite and CODATA
DataCite makes research better by enabling people to find, share, use, and cite data. We are a leading global membership organization offering reliable persistent data identification. We engage stakeholders including researchers, scholars, data centers, libraries, publishers, and funders through advocacy, guidance and services.
CODATA works to improve the quality, reliability, management and accessibility of data of importance to all fields of science and technology. CODATA is a resource that provides scientists and engineers with access to international data activities for increased awareness, direct cooperation and new knowledge. CODATA was established in 1966 by ICSU to promote and encourage, on a world-wide basis, the compilation, evaluation and dissemination of reliable numerical data of importance to science and technology.
