Introducing PRIME: Publisher, Repository and Institutional Metadata Exchange – Brian Hole

  1. 1. Introducing PRIME: Publisher, Repository  and Institutional Metadata Exchange Brian Hole (UP & UCL) OpenAire Interoperability Workshop, Braga, 8 February 2013 brian.hole@ubiquitypress.com               www.ubiquitypress.com / @ubiquitypress
  2. 2. Overview: why, where, how 1. Why exchange metadata? 2. Where to enable and incentivise deposit: Data journals 3. How to disseminate the data: the PRIME project brian.hole@ubiquitypress.com               www.ubiquitypress.com / @ubiquitypress

  5. 5. The Social Contract  of Science • Research requires an  effective, efficient  distribution model • Research funders are now  demanding this – it will  become the main model brian.hole@ubiquitypress.com               www.ubiquitypress.com / @ubiquitypress
  6. 6. Repositories brian.hole@ubiquitypress.com               www.ubiquitypress.com / @ubiquitypress
  7. 7. Data journals brian.hole@ubiquitypress.com               www.ubiquitypress.com / @ubiquitypress
  8. 8. Data journals • Data is already citable (e.g.  with DataCite DOIs) but this is  not something researchers  are familiar with doing. • Even when used, DataCite DOIs cannot currently be used  for citation tracking. brian.hole@ubiquitypress.com               www.ubiquitypress.com / @ubiquitypress
  9. 9. What is a data paper? A data paper… • … describes the methodology with which a dataset was created. • … describes the dataset itself. • … details the reuse potential of the data. • … is often authored by a data scientist. • … is citable, enabling reuse to be tracked. A data paper is not… • … a research paper. A data paper only  describes a dataset. But it will reference research papers that are based on the data. • … simply replication of the information in a  data repository. brian.hole@ubiquitypress.com               www.ubiquitypress.com / @ubiquitypress
  10. 10. Peer review 1. The paper contents a. The methods section of the paper must provide  sufficient detail that a reader can understand how  the resource was created. b. The resource must be correctly described. c. The reuse section must provide concrete and useful  suggestions for reuse of the reuse. 2. The deposited resource a. The repository must be suitable for resource and have a sustainability model. b. Open license permits unrestricted access (e.g. CC0). c. A version in an open, non‐proprietary format. d. Labeled in such a way that a 3rd party can make  sense of it. e. Must be actionable. brian.hole@ubiquitypress.com               www.ubiquitypress.com / @ubiquitypress

  13. 13. PRIME: Project focus • Developing a system to exchange metadata between: • the UCL Discovery EPrints institutional repository • the Archaeology Data Service subject repository • the Journal of Open Archaeology Data (JOAD) • Focusing on archaeology data only to pilot the system   • Building on other successful JISC projects: • DryadUK • REWARD • SWORD‐ARM brian.hole@ubiquitypress.com               www.ubiquitypress.com / @ubiquitypress
  14. 14. • Precursor to PRIME • A 6‐month JISC‐funded pilot project to introduce RDM to the  UCL Institute of Archaeology • Tested whether using familiar workflows and tools makes  archiving data less burdensome • Preparing a data management plan • Use of an institutional repository • Publishing a data paper brian.hole@ubiquitypress.com               www.ubiquitypress.com / @ubiquitypress

  17. 17. PRIME: Use Case #1 • • A UCL Researcher deposits data in an external subject repository.  The subject repository sends the metadata and DOI of the data to the  UCL institutional repository so that it has a record of the output.  brian.hole@ubiquitypress.com               www.ubiquitypress.com / @ubiquitypress
  18. 18. PRIME: Use Case #2 • • A UCL Researcher deposits data in their institutional repository. The institutional repository sends the metadata and DOI of the data to  the appropriate subject repository so that it has a record of the output.  brian.hole@ubiquitypress.com               www.ubiquitypress.com / @ubiquitypress
  19. 19. PRIME: Use Case #3 • • • A UCL Researcher submits an article to a journal, and is asked to archive the data  as a precondition of publication.  The journal sends the metadata to the subject repository so that the author does  not have to re‐enter it.  The subject repository sends the metadata and DOI of the data to the  institutional repository so that it has a record of the output, and the DOI back to  the journal to link the article with the data.  brian.hole@ubiquitypress.com               www.ubiquitypress.com / @ubiquitypress
  20. 20. Methodology 1. Metadata profile: • Simple at first (DataCite) 2. Metadata exchange: • Symplectic Elements (e.g. UCL) • Harvesting by Symplectic • User is asked to acknowledge ownership • Pure Eprints (e.g. University of Southampton) • EPrints harvests from others • User initiates harvesting 3. Case studies brian.hole@ubiquitypress.com               www.ubiquitypress.com / @ubiquitypress
