Data sharing: Coko awarded Sloan Foundation Grant

The award aims to help deliver compliance with data sharing policies.

Coko – the Collaborative Knowledge Foundation – has been awarded an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation grant to develop DataSeer.

DataSeer is an online service that uses Natural Language Processing to identify the datasets associated with a particular research article.

The goal is a service that guides authors through the data sharing process for their article, with reports for publishers, funders, and institutions so they can easily assess policy compliance by comparing what should be shared with what was actually shared.

The project partners include the University of California Curation Center (UC3), PLOS, and the University of California Press.
