Data Publications

 

Topoi publishes quality-tested multimedial research sources as an independent and citable publication on the research platform Edition Topoi. Comprehensive, thematically defined data collections or even smaller collections of research data linked to a book publication, are made available open access in the “Edition Topoi Collections“.

Citable: Computational and barrier-free access on digital research content

With Citable the Excellence Cluster Topoi has developed an innovative publication format allowing the further use of academic data. All digital objecs in the Edition Topoi Collections are clearly described via standardized meta data. In the Citable all those relevant meta information are summarized. Written in a future-proofed and open data standard, the Citable can be further processed, stored and integrated in other applications.

In the Edition Topoi, research data are long-term archived and quality assured

Edition Topoi sets high standards of quality for books and data publications alike: Both forms of publication are managed editorially and will be available for long-term accessability. With open content licenses, Edition Topoi’s data publications are in line with the demands for open access to scientific knowledge. Thus, once collected data can be used legally for further research questions and analysis.

The digital objects of the Edition Topoi Collections are given a so-called Digital Object Identifier (DOI). The published contents are thus permanently addressed and independently quotable. The long-term archiving and sustainable provision of the digital content are guaranteed by the university libraries of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and Freie Universität Berlin.

Research data provided on the Edition Topoi platform are published in accordance with the DFG Guidelines on the handling of research data, the research data policies of the supporting universities and other partner institutions, and the Research Data Management Policy (RDM Policy). In addition, Edition Topoi is based on the applicable standards of the Registry of Research Data Repositories (re3data) and those of the international DataCite consortium.
