Journal of Library Metadata  (*please feel free to forward)

SPECIAL ISSUE: Metadata for Scientific Data

This special issue of the Journal of Library Metadata presents 
metadata-related trends and practices, research, collaborations, and 
educational initiatives supporting digital data curation, lifecycle 
management, and use.

Scientific research, in nearly every domain, increasingly relies on 
digital information structures for collecting data, collaborating and 
disseminating findings.  This change has introduced many new challenges 
and opportunities for collecting, preserving, accessing, using, and 
sharing research data.  Digital libraries, repositories, and many types of 
information centers are seeking metadata solutions addressing these data 
management challenges and for advancing the scientific enterprise. 
Library and information science educators are enhancing curriculum 
offerings to include metadata courses, and integrating these offerings 
into digital curation programs.  Additionally, libraries and specialized 
communities are developing and promoting metadata standards to support 
data sharing.  This special issue of JLM presents *metadata* trends and 
practices, research and development activities, collaborations, and 
educational initiatives supporting curation, lifecycle management, and use 
of digital data stored in library, repository, and related environments.

Please forward submissions electronically (Word document or RTF) to the 
guest editor at:

- Metadata curation supporting e-science, life-cycle management, 
authentication, provenance tracking, and other functions and services.

- Metadata creation and quality control processes and policies supporting 
the management, access, and preservation of digital data.

- Metadata structures and programs enabling and demonstrating data sharing 
and re-use, linked data, and interoperability among digital collections 
and repositories.

- Semantic web and metadata registry developments for machine-driven 
processing of digital data.

- International, national, and emergent metadata vocabularies and semantic 
systems, such as ontologies, scientific taxonomies, Dublin Core 
application profiles.

- Exploration or use of Web 2.0 (or Web 3.0) technologies integrated with 
metadata efforts (e.g., Folksonomies) for describing or sharing digital 
data.

- Metadata models (e.g., DCAM, RDF, METS, FRBR) and their application to 
digital data.

- Identifiers (e.g., DOIs) and other naming conventions for tracking, 
authenticating, and providing access to digital data

- Community, consortial, or organizational initiatives curating and 
providing access to digital data.

- Educational initiatives and attention to metadata and digital data 
curation for a new, growing generation of information professionals.


The Journal of Library Metadataretitled from the Journal of Internet 
Cataloging to reflect a wider focusis the exclusive forum for the latest 
research, innovations, news, and expert views about all aspects of 
metadata applications in libraries, repositories, and other information 
centers.  This focused journal comprehensively discusses practical, 
applicable information that libraries can effectively use in their own 
information management.  Specialized knowledge, the latest technology, and 
top research are presented pertaining specifically to evolving metadata 
use in librariesand related information centers.  More information about 
the Journal of Library Metadata can be found online at
