First objective of the JISC-supported Sonex initiative was to identify and analyse deposit opportunities (use cases) for ingest of research papers (and potentially other scholarly work) into repositories. Later on, the project scope widened to include identification and dissemination of various projects being developed at institutions in relation to the deposit usecases previously analyzed. Finally, Sonex was recently asked to extend its analysis of deposit opportunities to research data.

Hrynaszkiewicz & Cockerill "In defence of supplemental data files"

A valuable text on Open Research Data was published last Fri Dec 10th by Iain Hrynaszkiewicz and Matt Cockerill at the BioMed Central blog. International initiatives for data sharing such as DataCite are mentioned in the article, along with plenty of other interesting references.

Another article on Open Data by Iain Hrynaszkiewicz was recently released in BMC Research Notes: "A call for BMC Research Notes contributions promoting best practice in data standardization, sharing and publication".
