The January/February special issue of D-Lib gives an interesting overview on the Research Data Alliance and its activities. It also includes a brief summary of the DataCite 2013 summer meeting, which was co-located with the 2nd RDA plenary meeting in Washington DC. The 2014 summer meeting will be co-located with the IFLA conference in France in August this year. We will publish more details on the event here in due time.
