Your CIAT Research Online, November 2015
 
 
Dear All,

The Data and Information Management team is pleased to share with you the latest CIAT Research Online Newsletter. This newsletter includes all 2015 research outputs submitted after the last newsletter.  
Congratulations to all for your publications and other research outputs.  Please see a few highlights below:
  • We have 119 peer-reviewed journal articles for 2015. 100 of these were published in ISI indexed journals, and 73 are open access. If we continue to receive publications at the current rate, we are on target to surpass the average number of peer-reviewed publications for the last 3 years which has been 134.
  • 13 datasets have been published since the last newsletter. The total number of 2015 datasets so far is thirty (30). 27 in CIAT Dataverse and 3 in other repositories. Our target for this year is 35 open datasets.
  • Our publications repository, CGSpace, has recently received a major upgrade, with enhanced statistics and improved aesthetics. Upgrades also include the capacity to catalogue your work using ORCID numbers. This means that both CGSpace and Dataverse are using ORCID IDs to uniquely identifier researchers. All research staff kindly register for your ORCID number here and send your number to CIAT-library@cgiar.org. 
35 years worth of Cassava trials data now available: The CIAT Cassava program recently published in open access breeding trial data for all cassava trials conducted in Colombia since 1979.  The data was published in 6 datasets, one for each edapho-climatic zone with importance to cassava production. The datasets are linked to the corresponding records on AgTrials and have also been made available on the Integrated Breeding Platform, Breeding Management System (BMS) database. Kindly find links to the data in the published dataset section below.
This was only made possible thanks to all the CIAT Cassava breeders who have conducted excellent research over the years under the leadership of 
Clair Hershey and Joe Tohme.  I would also like to recognize the data curation effort of Arturo Franco, Lizbeth Pino and Carolina Garcia, which was enabled in no small part by the data management resources put together by Luis Augusto Becerra and team. 

Sincerely,

Leroy Mwanzia
