What constitutes reasonable procedures? Even, will these be taken seriously.But, everyone sees this as a line in the sand.

  • What is a data management plan?A document that describes what you will do with your data duringandafter you complete your researchThe DMPTool“walks” scientists through the process of developing a concise, but comprehensive data management plan that could enable good stewardship of data and meet requirements of sponsors and home institutions.UVA Library, UIUC Library, DataONE, UCLA, UCSD, CDL, Smithsonian, DCCThe California Digital Library and its partners were awarded a $590,000 grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to fund further development of the popular Data Management Planning Tool in 2013. Granular  modeling  of  plan  templates  Granular  modeling  of  institutions  Role‐based  user  authorization  DMP  life  cycle  management  Organizational  planning  activities    Enhanced  search  and  browse  Institutional  branding    Search  and  reporting  for  business  intelligence    Advanced  administrative  interface    Collaborative  plan  creation  Open  API  
  • DATA CITATION1. Get full credit for your research2. Ensure transparency & accountability3. Get more citations & track the impact of your work4. Promote scientific re-use of your work On our current roadmap:Support for an additional identifier type: URNsAdding UI support for DataCite XMLProviding a harvest service for improved identifier managementAdding a replica of the ARK resolver in the UK, thanks to a grant from JISC.

    • 2. Data: The New Frontier Joan Starr California Digital Library
    • 3. 1. Federal Mandates 2. What they mean 3. What you can do
    • 4. California Digital Library (CDL)
    • 5. The Mandates
    • 6. 1. January 18, 2011: proposals submitted to NSF must include a supplementary document of no more than two pages labeled "Data Management Plan" (DMP)
    • 7. 2. March 29, 2012: Whitehouse announces “BIG DATA” initiative with $200 million in new R&D investments.
    • 8. 3. February 22, 2013: The Office of Science & Technology Policy (OSTP) directs agencies to provide public access to federally funded research.
    • 9. What does this mean? If your scholars work with federal support: • They need data management plans. • They must share their data.
    • 10. Scholar A
    • 11. What are “metadata”? Are there standards or best practices I should be aware of? How much will it cost? Why should I care about preservation? I just need a place to put my data.Where can I get help? How can I share my work with my colleagues? How can I publish the data associated with my publications? How do I fulfill the data management requirements of my grant? How can I make sure I get credit ? Can’t my work be included in the Web of Science? How can I provide access to my work? Scholar B
    • 12. For the Library… Perspective A Perspective B
    • 13. • Engage early in the lifecycle for greatest impact What can you do? • Prioritize scarce resources. Be clear about your choices • Start small: provide simple services and/or tools that can evolve • Choose flexible solutions that can be used in diverse ways • Develop partnerships and collaborate now more than ever
    • 14. Our suite of services: Match the profile
    • 15. DMPTool • Connect researchers to resources to create a data management plan • NSF and directorates, NIH, NEH, IMLS, foundations • Customizable Meeting funding agencies data management plan requirements Primary Functions 1. Step-by-step “wizard” 2. Templates and examples 3. Links to institutional resources and agency information 4. Plan publication and sharing
    • 16. • DataCite DOIs for data, linking to scholarly research • Credit to data producers and data publishers • Exposure and metrics for datasets (Web of Knowledge, Google) Primary Functions 1. Create identifiers 2. Manage identifiers (and metadata) over time 3. Resolve identifiers EZID Long term identifiers made easy @ezidCDL
    • 17. Primary Functions 1. An Excel 1) add-in & 2) cloud application 2. Document data 3. Check for good data practices 3. Obtain identifier and citation 4. Archive and share DataUp Collect, share, archive, publish data @DataUpCDL
