In 2015, the LTR Section participated in the selection process for the De Gruyter / IFLA Research Paper Award by proposing its theme and appointing a jury to select a winning paper. Thanks to all candidates and congratulations to Ana Parvan for winning the Award!
Ana's winning paper, The role of data curator in the CERN Particle Physics Data-Sharing Community, will be published in the September issue of LIBRI, a leading international scholarly journal published by De Gruyter.
