diversity of data centres and of practices
Diversity of data centres … and of practices
  • Where do researchers put their data?
    • PARSE.Insight survey
      • 20% of respondents stored their research data in a digital archive, of whom …
      • 14% using an organisation archive
      • 6% a discipline archive
  • Why?
    • That’s the way the science works ~ Imposed obligation ~ ‘Culture’ etc.

what makes for successful data sharing1
What makes for successful data sharing?
  • “Actively seek to work within the global research network by forging links with other data centres, with research institutions, with publishers, and with complementary service providers.”

barriers to data sharing
Barriers to data sharing

Part of the problem or part of the solution?

Lack of data reviewers in infrastructure to assure data quality

Risk that data holders cease to operate, and archive is lost

Introducing specific job profiles with career paths for data preparation and quality assurance staff – such staff may be embedded in research groups or hosted in data centres

Impossibility of data centre staff having detailed technical knowledge of all data

Data centres meeting minimum standards of data curation must be available to scientists in all disciplines, so that they have confidence their data will be correctly attributed, its integrity will be maintained, and any restrictions such as embargos and protection of commercial confidence will be properly applied

working together
Working together
  • Relationships (between data centres and other parties)
    • Efficiency
      • Where is the job best done?
    • Trust (short and long term)
      • Data centre as a Trustworthy Digital Repository?

ODE final meeting, Frascati, 7 Nov 2012

working together1
Working together
  • Data centres and researchers
    • The “designated community”
    • Benefits for researchers
    • Integration with workflows
      • Data lifecycle and data management in science

Working together
  • STM declaration
    • “Raw research data should be made freely available to all researchers. Publishers encourage the public posting of the raw data outputs of research. Sets or sub-sets of data that are submitted with a paper to a journal should wherever possible be made freely accessible to other scholars”
  • Data citation
  • Reciprocal linking with publishers
