JTRP Collaboration

Project Title: Linking Research Data to Published Technical Reports

Sponsored by: Joint Transportation Research Program (JTRP)
My Role: Project Coordinator
Start Date: March 2013
End Date: March 2014
Description: The Joint Transportation Research Program facilitates collaboration between the Indiana Department of Transportation, higher education institutions and industry to implement innovations that result in continuous improvement in the planning, design, construction, operation, management and economic efficiency of the Indiana transportation infrastructure.  The Libraries collaborated with JTRP (Joint Transportation Research Program) to integrate linking data publications to technical reports through the creation of a comprehensive publication workflow. This workflow included developing metadata and citation standards that would allow for greater discovery and citation of both transportation technical reports and research data through DOIs (Digital Object Identifiers). I am now working with TRB (Transportation Research Board) on creating a scalable model for other transportation research centers and state departments of transportation.
