  • Data Management Planning• Data management planning is a growing requirement from funders, publishers and HEIs, in the UK and internationally• Supportive of good research practice, according to RCUK• A cross-cutting activity involving multiple stakeholder types (researchers, librarians, IT managers, support staff)DCC London, Imperial College, 22 May 2012 #dcc_london

  • DCC ToolsDCC London, Imperial College, 22 May 2012 #dcc_london
  • Four DCC ToolsDCC London, Imperial College, 22 May 2012 #dcc_london
  • DCC Tools: DAF• What are the characteristics of research data assets? – Number? – Scale? – Complexity? – Dependencies? – Liabilities? www.data-audit.eu• Why do researchers act the way they do with respect to data?• What do they need to do research?DCC London, Imperial College, 22 May 2012 #dcc_london
  • DCC Tools: CARDIO Collaborative Assessment of Research Data Infrastructures & Objectives An online tool for departments or research groups to identify and communicate their current data management capabilities and identify options for enhancement using a dedicated knowledge base. CARDIO emphasises a collaborative, consensus-driven approach, and enables benchmarking with other groups and institutions. http://cardio.dcc.ac.uk/DCC London, Imperial College, 22 May 2012 #dcc_london
  • DCC Tools: CARDIO• How well does an institution (or department, School, etc.) manage its data?• Depends on: – Finances – Technology – Policy management – Organisational will• Demands acknowledgement of multiple perspectivesDCC London, Imperial College, 22 May 2012 #dcc_london
  • DCC London, Imperial College, 22 May 2012 #dcc_london
  • DCC Tools: DMP Online• The DCCs web-based data management planning tool• Plans can be built and edited to reflect the requirements of the major UK funders• Contains guidance and links to resources for researchers and data professionals.www.dcc.ac.uk/dmponlineDCC London, Imperial College, 22 May 2012 #dcc_london
  • DCC Tools: DRAMBORA• DRAMBORA is an audit methodology and tool for identifying and planning for the management of risks• These risks may threaten the availability and/or usability of content in a digital repository or archive.www.repositoryaudit.euDCC London, Imperial College, 22 May 2012 #dcc_london
  • DCC Tools: DRAMBORA • A variety of risk factors, both internal and external, affect the management of digital research data • Risks can be tangible (fire/flood) or intangible (accidental data loss leading to reputational impact) • They may exist in isolation, or lead to other risks if not adequately managedDCC London, Imperial College, 22 May 2012 #dcc_london
  • Policy (i) The DCC has a number of guidance resources related to research data policy. We can guide institutions on their requirements to manage/share data, and offer practical steps to help them develop data policies by: -Providing templates and examples to demonstrate what aspects could be incorporated into a data policy; -Coordinating / contributing to meetings of relevant stakeholders to ensure all activities and perspectives are addressed; -Reviewing and feeding back on draft policies; -Assisting with communications to launch and implement the policy.DCC London, Imperial College, 22 May 2012 #dcc_london
  • Policy (ii) Benefits of developing a data policy: -Compliance with funder guidelines, e.g. the EPSRC expectation that HEIs have a RDM roadmap in place by May 2012, and be fully compliant by May 2015; -Assuring the good conduct of research in line with Research Integrity guidelines (see RCUK & UKRIO docs); -Clarity for researchers and demonstrable institutional commitment for RDM; -The prestige of joining a small but growing group of leading institutions with a data policy: www.dcc.ac.uk/resources/policy-and-legal/institutional- data-policiesDCC London, Imperial College, 22 May 2012 #dcc_london
  • Strategy (i) We offer a half-day workshop in which key stakeholders from an institution (e.g. librarians, senior IT staff, research administration, repository staff, researchers, etc) convene to discuss and develop an institutional strategy for RDM. Benefits: -Coherence across service providers and agreed direction for RDM services; -Ability to reference strategy /commitment to RDM (the University of Oxford policy may be a useful example of this - www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rdm); -A move towards more efficient management of data.DCC London, Imperial College, 22 May 2012 #dcc_london
  • Strategy (ii) Through practical breakout sessions, senior DCC staff can lead and mediate discussion to help the institution determine its priorities and define practical next steps. These might include the development of infrastructure (e.g. data repositories), new services (e.g. DMP support), policy development, improved guidance or data management training provision. Suggested actions will depend on gaps/areas for improvement as perceived by the institution.DCC London, Imperial College, 22 May 2012 #dcc_london
  • Training (i) We offer a variety of training courses: -DC101 introduction to data management -Tools of the Trade courses which give practical overviews and hands-on exercises using DCC tools -Train-the-Trainer, which equips information professionals to teach RDM courses. Generic training materials are available online, and hardcopy packs can be produced.DCC London, Imperial College, 22 May 2012 #dcc_london
  • Training (ii) The DCC can: -Run courses, tailoring content to institutional needs; -Assist in the development of online learning materials (screencasts, audio-synced slides); -Develop resources such as guidance documents, case studies and manuals. Key benefits of training provision are: -Improved data management capacity; -The opportunity to profile and raise awareness of institutional support services.DCC London, Imperial College, 22 May 2012 #dcc_london
