There are two new reports from the USA National Academy of Sciences (NAS) of direct interest to us in terms of scientific research data.
Firstly the NAS has published a report on a Workshop on Data Science :-

It is interesting from several points of view notably education and training in data science skills.
This confirms in my mind that a generic education and training across all our IUCr Commissions on data science skills training
would be good to initiate. Volunteers welcome to develop this idea.
Secondly the NAS has published:-
http://www.nap.edu/catalog/25116/open-s ... st-century
It is a very wide ranging report covering many aspects that we are interested in.
Our databases are specifically cited on page 99.
You can download a free, advance of publication, copy of each report by registering yourself at the NAS publications website. (https://www.nap.edu/login.php?record_id=25199)
