Call for proposals to enrich metadata and promote data paper publication

Deadline: 17 September 2012 

The GBIF Secretariat is inviting proposals from GBIF Nodes for activities to engage with data publishers to promote delivery of enriched metadata for existing and new datasets, and publication of data papers as an incentive for metadata publishing.

The call is aimed at increasing awareness of the significance of metadata to enable discovery and use of datasets published through the GBIF network; and of the potential of peer-reviewed data papers to give due recognition to the efforts of those involved in data publishing.

Individuals, data publishers and research groups wishing to participate in the call can approach relevant GBIF Nodes and team up with them to submit a proposal.

Catalytic support for proposals will be in the range of €2000 to €5000.
