Oregon Health and Science University has collaborated with Montana State University to create Radian Data, a curated site dedicated to increasing the discovery of and access to data resources. A hub for information about data science, data visualization, data management, data policy and applications of data, Radian Data uses the PressForward plugin and a group of volunteer editors-at-large to review the most recent open access data resources and share them with its audience.

Data science is such a specialized field that data resources are often published in similarly specialized venues. Radian Data seeks to break down the boundaries between the experts, practitioners, and those just learning about data science and data management, creating a space where anyone can access work being done in the field. According to the publication, “Radian will illuminate the data landscape by facilitating discovery and community building for researchers, librarians, data scientists, students, policy makers, publishers, and activists as they work to harness the power of open data.”

Mission Statement

Radian is a collaborative space for discovering, reusing, and remixing content related to data management, data visualization, data science, and data for the public good. Using the PressForward Plugin, community editors will aggregate, curate, and discuss curriculum materials, research, best practices, and current events related to these themes. Radian will illuminate the data landscape by facilitating discovery and community building for researchers, librarians, data scientists, students, policy makers, publishers, and activists as they work to harness the power of open data. The Radian community will be open and inclusive, with a diversity of voices reflected in the content we highlight. This vision will be realized through a global community of Editors-at-Large representing different perspectives, interests, and expertise, and the diverse venues of content we aggregate.
