From Open Access to Open data, our initiatives From Open Access to Open data, our initiatives Presentation Transcript

  • From Open Access to Open Data in Agriculture:FAO analysis of some international initiatives andprojects for datasharing Presentation at the INRA workshop “Open Science”, Paris, 16 April 2013 Dr. Johannes Keizer Office of Knowledge Exchange Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN Presentations by Johannes Keizer is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution- NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.
  • Disappearing DataThese are the data from my Phdthesis, I started to look for them 2 http://aims.fao.org johannes keizer
  • https://www.google.de/search?q=johannes+Keizer++Dissertation+Toxizitaet+und+Biotransformation+-+Unterschiede+in+der&aq=f&oq=johannes+Keizer++Dissertation+Toxizitaet+und+Biotransformation+-+Unterschiede+in+der&aqs=chrome.0.57.60915j0&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 http://aims.fao.org johannes keizer

  • …at the end I found a record about my PhD thesis, somewhat proud, that I found it through AGRIS, our own service.But the data could not be found, they were practically lost in the few print copies and microfiche of the thesis 5
  • There will be generated more scientific data in the next 5 years than in the history of humankindhttp://aims.fao.org johannes keizer
  • The distribution pattern is changing http://aims.fao.org johannes keizer
  • Data definition Data: digital recorded factual material commonly accepted n the scientific community as necessary to validate research findings http://aims.fao.org johannes keizer 8
  • ....what is data http://aims.fao.org johannes keizer
  • Distributed Repositories• stats How can I get in real time all the specimen data on• gene banksuseful insects from all people making research on this on my desktop? How can I share in real time my data• gis data with other colleagues working on that.• blogs,• journals• open archives• raw data• technologies• learning objects• ……….. http://aims.fao.org johannes keizer

  • The world of which we dream http://aims.fao.org johannes keizer
  • Mechanisms  Political awareness and institutional readiness • CIARD http://www.ciard.net  Community of practice and collaboration platform • AIMS (http://aims.fao.org)  Implementation mechanisms • Collaborations with other institutions • Funded projects http://aims.fao.org johannes keizer

  • RDA & agricultural dataA Domain Interest Group to represent all stakeholders producing, managing, aggregating, sharing, consuming data from/for agricultural research & innovation • will bring existing problems & experience on the table • pave the way for a number of domain-specific WGs (e.g. germplasm databases) • serve as a well-supported and politically important domain case for other WGs (e.g. preservation, PID)• Positioned carefully to serve as an interface to existing fora become their mechanism and interface for consultation with research data infrastructures http://aims.fao.org johannes keizer
  • Rajender, ICARI would like to submit that the Data sharing policy is a pre-cursor to data management.When I say data sharing policy, it should include methodology and means of sharing andshould have inbuilt component of IPR protection. We should also think of some valueaddition to data shared as it would motivate the researchers to share the data.We have been trying to create a Research Data Repository. We, however, find that theresearchers are very enthuasistic in sharing the data. Therefore, data sharing policymust also contain some value addition guidelines which would encourage researchers toshare data in their respective domains.Along with data sharing we also need to talk on Standardization protocol. We at ICARhave initiated an Information System on Designed Experiments. One can register as aguest andlook into the basic data at http://js.iasri.res.in:8080/afeis/index.html.. http://aims.fao.org johannes keizer 20
  • Working Group on Wheat Data http://aims.fao.org johannes keizer 21
  • Data availability today http://aims.fao.org johannes keizer 22
  • wheat data WG (18m)Wheat: high societal and political priority & impact G20 priority & initiative (http://www.wheatinitiative.org) in line with G8 Open Agricultural Data effortsComplex data interoperability problems Germplasm data Genetic and phenotypic data Statistical data (yield, surface, consumption …) Bibliographic data …more http://aims.fao.org johannes keizer
  • expected WG outcomesA cookbook on exposing and linking wheat-related databases/repositories i. existing data types & selection of sample data sources to be covered ii. review of open formats for wheat data types iii. recommendations for open & linked exposure of wheat data iv. exposure of sample wheat data sources from international partners v. promotion through relevant campaign (online, workshops, …) http://aims.fao.org johannes keizer
