Another question:
Does anyone know of any degree courses  - library, information science,  information management etc - that have an element of research data management in any of their units?
Thanks

Like unicorns a typical data librarian does not exist.

What do you think of when you use, or hear, the term Data Librarian?

Global-level data sets may be more highly cited than most journal articles.
Posted: 15 May 2014 03:00 AM PDT
Scientists can be reluctant to share data because of the need to publish journal articles and receive recognition. But what if the data sets were actually a better way of getting credit for your work? Chris Belter measured the impact of a few openly accessible data sets and compared to journal articles in his field. His results provide hard evidence that the […]

Famous paintings help study the Earth’s past atmosphere
The Lake, Petworth: Sunset, Fighting Bucks, by J. M. W. Turner
A team of Greek and German researchers has shown that the colours of sunsets painted by famous artists can be used to estimate pollution levels in the Earth’s past atmosphere. In particular, the paintings reveal that ash and gas released during major volcanic eruptions scatter the different colours of sunlight, making sunsets appear more red. The results are published today in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, an open access journal of the European Geosciences Union (EGU).

Journal Article: Nine simple ways to make it easier to (re)use your data
Nine simple ways to make it easier to (re)use your data

Abstract
17 Sharing data is increasingly considered to be an important part of the scientific process. Making your
18 data publicly available allows original results to be reproduced and new analyses to be conducted.
19 While sharing your data is the first step in allowing reuse, it is also important that the data be easy
20 understand and use. We describe nine simple ways to make it easy to reuse the data that you share
21 and also make it easier to work with it yourself. Our recommendations focus on making your data
22 understandable, easy to analyze, and readily available to the wider community of scientists.
