  2. 2. Because good research needs good data Contents• Welcome, and aims of the day• Introduction to SCARP• Synthesis study• Draft recommendations SCARP synthesis & recommendations 12/2009
  3. 3. Because good research needs good data Welcome and aims• Overview of the project(s)• Discussion of the disciplinary studies• Consultation on recommendations• Where next (especially for non-discipline- based data repositories)? SCARP synthesis & recommendations 12/2009

Because good research needs good data Introduction to SCARP• “Disciplinary Approaches to Sharing, Curation, Re- use and Preservation”• Origin: Warwick Workshop November 2005 • “Digital Curation and Preservation: Defining the research agenda for the next decade”• Disciplinary factors in caring for research data • Perspectives • Practices • Methods • Tools• Immersive approach SCARP synthesis & recommendations 12/2009
  5. 5. Because good research needs good dataDisciplinary issues still critical• More demanding data policies• Curation has to start well before ingest• Still need better tools and infrastructure for researchers• Emerging institutional data repositories and services SCARP synthesis & recommendations 12/2009
  6. 6. Because good research needs good data Synthesis study• Carried out by Key Perspectives • SCARP studies • Other studies with disciplinary relevance• Much more difficult than expected • High variability in the studies used • Collected & assembled key themes• Synthesis rather than commentary or critical review SCARP synthesis & recommendations 12/2009
  7. 7. Because good research needs good data Synthesis findings• A generic “library-style” approach to curation will be insufficient• Institutional data repositories (IDRs) will require domain-specific strategies SCARP synthesis & recommendations 12/2009
  8. 8. Because good research needs good data Discipline factors• Community history• Types & quantities of data• Uniqueness & re-use value of data• Common data format standardisation & acceptance• Sharing vs competition for funding• Funding body policies• Available curation infrastructure• Size of research teams• Diversity of field SCARP synthesis & recommendations 12/2009
  9. 9. Because good research needs good data Commonalities• Protectiveness towards data• Data re-use as aid for current research • Bargaining?• Early to mid-term researchers as change agents SCARP synthesis & recommendations 12/2009
  10. 10. Because good research needs good data Recommendations?• JISC • Learned Societies • Continue Managing Research Data • Support discipline req’ts • Map discipline req’ts • Institutions• Funders • Identify how curation will • Mandates be funded & supported • Recognise value of data • Support national-scale data • Researchers/scholars support service • Curate your data!• Publishers • Develop selection/ • Policy on data appraisal criteria • Make supp data useful • Contribute to standards • Promote data citations consensus SCARP synthesis & recommendations 12/2009
  11. 11. Because good research needs good data Questions?• Doctoral training etc? • Data scientists, data librarians…• Develop tools? • What tools?• How can Institutional data repositories best deal with varying disciplinary req’ts? • Specialist subject librarians? • Liaison with researchers? SCARP synthesis & recommendations 12/2009
