Crop Sciences Data: A Review of Faculty Publications at the University of Illinois
MetadataShow full item record
This study gathered information about the data used, generated and shared by researchers in the Department of Crop Sciences in University of Illinois' College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences. Two recent articles from each Crop Sciences faculty member were reviewed over a few months in late 2011 and early 2012. Notes were made about specific types of data published, which could help inform discussions about crop sciences metadata and data repositories. Information was also gathered about data sources mentioned and data sharing methods used, such as depositing data in a repository and publishing supplementary files. Each article was also categorized to help identify any differences or similarities between types of research, such as field research and genetic research. This presentation will provide an overview of common data types in the crop sciences, discuss data reuse and sharing observations, and highlight specific resources for acquiring and sharing data relevant to crop sciences research.
