SPARC has launched a new list, to discuss issues around access to digital data associated with scientific research: SPARC OpenData email discussion list - "The list’s emphasis is on defining the scope of Open Data and collecting examples of desirable and undesirable practices."
According to the founder and moderator of the list, Peter Murray-Rust, “The emerging Open Data movement shares many goals with the Open Access and Open Source movements, but encompasses its own distinct issues that are in need of examination by the scientific community. This list is intended to facilitate that important discussion.”
