JAN BRASE

Jan Brase has a degree in Mathematics and a phD in Computer science. His research background is metadata, ontologies and digital libraries.
Since 2005 he is head of the DOI-registration agency for research data at the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB).
He is furthermore Managing Agent of DateCite, an international consortium with 15 members from 11 countries (
http://www.datacite.org).
 
DataCite was founded in December 2009 and has set itself the goal of making the online access to research data for scientists easier by promoting the acceptance of research data as individual, citable scientific objects.
 
Jan is Chair of the International DOI foundation (IDF), Vice-President of the International Council for Scientific and Technical Information (ICSTI) and Co-Chair of the recently established CODATA Data Citation task group. He is author of several articles and conference paper on the citation of data sets and the new challenges for libraries in dealing with such non-textual information objects.
