Webinar #10: An Introduction to the DSA–WDS Common Requirements


On Wednesday, 31 August at 12:00 UTC, Ingrid Dillo (WDS-SC Vice-chair) gave An Introduction to the DSA–WDS Common Requirements in the 10th WDS WebinarAlthough this Webinar was open to all, it was particularly focussed towards current and prospective WDS Regular Members, who will transition to the new DSA–WDS Common Requirements from October.

Since 2012, a Working Group consisting of representatives from both the ICSU World Data System and the Data Seal of Approval (DSA) has explored and developed a DSA–WDS Partnership. Its outputs have been a set of harmonized Common Requirements for core certification of digital repositories that is drawn from the DSA and WDS catalogues of criteria, as well as Common Procedures for their implementation. This new Certification Standard is to be adopted by the two organizations, and integrated into their tools and systems, before the end of 2016.

A video of the Webinar and the slides presented are now available through the Webinar #10 page.
