Practical and Conceptual Considerations of Research Object Preservation Practical and Conceptual Considerations of Research Object Preservation Presentation Transcript

  • Inna Kouper, Beth Plale, Indiana University Dharma Akmon, Margaret Hedstrom, University of Michigan Practical and Conceptual Considerations of Research Object Preservation Digital Preservation 2014 Meeting Washington, DC July 23, 2014
  • Data Preservation Challenges • Research spans over months or years • Data are heterogeneous and complex • Data changes states through collection, processing, analysis and publication • Processes are as important as products • Multiple agents, including individuals and organizations, are involved • People, processes and products are in non-linear relationships Capture and formalize for automation, reproducility and re-use?
  • Research Object Unique ID Agents StatesRelationships Content Research Object Framework • Data creator • Curator • Data re-use scientist • Live • Curated • Published • Aggregates • Related to • Describes • Derived from • Versioned from • Files • Bitstreams • Pointers Bundles of resources that use common standards and services to transfer and consume them
  • Live Objects • In a state of flux • Handled by members of the project team • Transition initiated by intent to publish Curation Objects • Content packaged using BagIT protocol • Metadata and relationships captured via OAI/ORE maps • Mutable, but changes are selective (metadata) Publication Objects • Immutable and citable (DOI) • Deposited using the best match algorithm • Lineage (revisions and derivations) is tracked Research Object States
  • Working with Live Objects
  • Curation and Publishing
  • Broader Implications • RO concept and its implementation in SEAD allows us to document content, context, processes, states • Entities can be edited on multiple levels • ROs can be deposited to institutional repositories, cloud storage, domain repositories • Needed: – multiple licensing and permissions (to address diverse models of RO ownership) – sophisticated lineage tracking (to build trust, authority and authenticity) – cases of re-use (to create better tools and services)
