  1. 1. www.ciard.net information@ciard.net CIARD Good Practices Online Meeting, 9th June 2014
  2. 2. Purpose of this online event
  3. 3. • Seek guidance from the CIARD community how to proceed with the “good practices” (a.k.a “Pathways”) • Introduction (15 minutes) • Discussion on 3 questions (30 minutes each)
  4. 4. Context
  5. 5. The original concept “…provide an introduction to the ways in which research outputs can be made more available, accessible and applicable (the 3As) for the stakeholders who will derive benefit from this information and knowledge. The CIARD Manifesto and the CIARD Checklist of Good Practices are statements of what needs to be done in order to achieve the enhancement of the 3As. The CIARD Pathways are practical guides, showing how the different elements of the Manifesto and the Checklist can be achieved by institutions around the world.” They aim to be: • concise • not too technical i.e. they provide an introduction • linked to other resources which provide more detailed guidance and best practice.
  6. 6. Evidence of use (such as we have it) Figure1 : Top unique page views at www.ciard.net (January 2009-March 2013)
  7. 7. What it tells us • Pathways are an important part of the CIARD offer • Numbers of hits are relatively low
  8. 8. Most comments supportive, but • They are too complicated • Not practical enough • Not dynamic enough (links to AIMS, IMARK and other sources of advice) • They need to be more local Partner survey: CIARD Review 2013
  9. 9. • Develop in a wiki environment, where they can evolve and mature • Expose in a mini-portal, linking to other resources including IMARK, AIMS • Develop versions in Spanish, French (and possibly other languages) • Link to relevant tools 2013 Consultation: proposed process
  10. 10. • Grouping of Good practices has been revised: – Group 1: Organizational culture and capacity – Group 2: Availability and accessibility of information and data – Group 3: Sharing of knowledge (social processes) • Content has been reshuffled, new content proposed (e.g. Linked Open Data, guidance on other data types like soil data, genetic data) • Working groups members have been recruited – Group 1 – 26 – Group 2 – 36 – Group 3 – 40 Since 2013 Consultation
  11. 11. Today
  12. 12. TODAY the CIARD Good Practices include more types of content additionally to the text, with the objective to enrich it with information from the CIARD Community: • Forums • Webinars • Posts from the community members • Interviews • Persons with experience in the topics • Links to additional resources • Related events Good practices for the Group 1 have very recently been finalized
  13. 13. Recommendations – 2013 Status Mini-portal - a minimum of text with links to other online resources and tools providing more detailed advice, training, and examples of best practice (particularly those produced by partners) This approach taken with Group 1 revisions, e.g. blog posts, webinars, interviews, related events, experts directory... ---- Achieved, but with very little input from the Community English, French and Spanish (and possibly more) versions to be developed English only ---- Not achieved, unclear how to proceed with translations The Pathways to be redeveloped in three major groups: Group 1: Organizational culture and capacity; Group 2: Availability and accessibility of information and data; Group 3: Sharing of knowledge (social processes) Groupings were agreed by partners and the CIARD community ---- Achieved Pathways developed in a wiki environment within which they evolve. Quality control to be built into the process of development Good practices integrated in the CMS used by www.ciard.net, Drupal. ---- Achieved, however very few members in the CIARD Community have registered Redevelopment : summary of progress
  14. 14. Issues today • Development procedure very much focused on a collaborative editing – Experience with Group 1: poor participation from the WG members (Dgroups) => one person effort, 3 out of 26 WG members provided feedback • No good linkages with the rest of the community – Difficult to inform that a Pathway has been published and can be used • Lack of ownership of Good practices – Unclear process of development and maintenance – Who does what and when?
  15. 15. 1. What do we think of the proposed scope of the CIARD Good Practices? 2. Who do we see as the audience for the Good Practices? 3. How can the Good Practices be taken forward? Do we want a product soon, or is the community process leading? Issues for discussion and agenda
