ICSU-WDS Forges Links with DataCite and ICSTI
ICSU-WDS has strengthened its position in the areas of data citation and communication of scientific and technical knowledge by forming official ties with DataCite and the International Council for Scientific and Technical Information (ICSTI). DataCite became a WDS Partner Member in March 2014, and ICSU-WDS is in the process of signing a Memorandum of Understanding with them, outlining our commitment to cooperate on topics of common interest. Moreover, ICSU-WDS and ICSTI exchanged mutual Associate memberships in April 2014; establishing a formal relationship as the basis for active and productive collaboration. In the past years, ICSU-WDS has worked with both of these organizations, and we look forward to finding further synergies in the future.
