The 3TU.Datacentrum 8/8 The benefits for data producers and data consumers
Increased visibility of research output. (metadata in repository networks, assigning doi’s, facilitate increases citation rate for ‘enhanced publications’, ...);
Improved quality of dataset (quality assurance for multi- user setup, checks on ingest, …);
Provide (long-term) preservation of and accessibility to, valuable research data;
Distribution of research data for reuse, including administration and usage statistics;
Provides advice on data management, rights, formats, metadata, etc.
Nobody needs my data Data transfer not needed, every PhD does own project Our datasets are confidential Interesting but not for me Only for long term continuous data Datasets are stored by publisher No time! Our research is once only What do data producers say? 1/2
Surprising our university had no faciltity for data preservation Transfer of data between PhD’s can be improved Would like to publish data Good opportunity to share datasets we bought Very usefull, essential metadata often missing Much to improve in reuse of data When can I store my datasets? What do data producers say? 2/2
At the start of research projects time and resources must be allocated for data preservation;
(Controlled) sharing of pre-publication data must be possible;
The ‘source’ of every data set must be traceable;
Quality of research data is responsibility of data producer.
Data transformations should be stored with data in order to make review possible.
