Figshare Article Feedback

Hi Todd,

Just reading and article that might be a good idea to cite in the Figshare article.

“Big data and the future of ecology”

http://www.nceas.ucsb.edu/~hampton/Hampton_Frontiers_2013.pdf

Authors include Amber Budden, Carly Strasser, John Porter, and other DataONE associates.

A key point presented is “Traditional ecology produces ‘dark data'” which is kind of the direction I was going with “Figshare as a DataONE member node for dark data” as a reason why DataONE would be interested.

I hope that linkage is apparent in the Figshare article – adding this citation might help solidify the linkage.

Thanks,

Tanner

About Tanner Jessel

I am a recent M.S. in Information Science graduate from the University of Tennessee School of Information Science. I was formerly a graduate research assistant funded by DataONE (Data Observation Network for Earth). Prior, I worked for four years as a content lead and biodiversity scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey's Biodiversity Informatics Program. Building on my work experience in biodiversity and environmental informatics, my work with DataONE focused on exploring the nature of scientific collaborations necessary for scientific inquiry. I also conducted research concerning user experience and usability, and assisted in development of member nodes with an emphasis on spatial data and infrastructure. I assisted with research designed to understand sociocultural issues within collaborative research communities. Through August 1, 2014, I was based at the Center for Information and Communication Studies at the University of Tennessee School of Information Science in Knoxville, Tennessee.
