  • 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY I’m going to speak briefly today about national efforts to build skills and capacity for research data management in the UK. This is something that the DCC plays a central role in, but we are by no means the only player. I’ll then try to highlight possible roles for you as repository managers. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care?
  • 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY There are a number of reasons to care about research data management – I’ve listed some of the more pertinent ones here. The ones about investment and reuse are those that motivated government to put money behind a programme to improve practice in this area Some of the latter reasons – regulatory requirements, for instance – are of more concern to institutions. Only a small number matter to the researchers that create the data. But it’s important to be aware of all the motivating factors and the ones that concern different stakeholders. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care?
  • We’ve got a 5-year programme – or at least a 5-year business plan – to maximise the value and benefit of research data. The plan assumes that an investment of £24m over 5 years will realise benefits of at least £120m by the end of that time. But those benefits are realised primarily towards the end of the spending. In the meantime we focus on creating capacity and capability in institutions, with national services, support, and coordination from the DCC. I should stress that the bulk of that investment is not going to the DCC itself; we operate on a much smaller scale. The focus is to create capacity and capability to manage research data effectively within institutions; there’s a thin layer of national services, support and coordination that comes from the DCC. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care? 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY
  • Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care? 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY
  • I could summarise our message very simply – do this badly and bad things will happen – do it well and good things will happen. The bad things range from the annoying to imprisonment; the good things include saving money and increased research impact. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care? 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY
  • Institutions are our focus because they are the focus of many of the pressures involved – from funders, from the law and compliance officers, from researcher demand and from internal wishes to save money and increase value. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care? 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY
  • Those external pressures include those from funders such as EPSRC. Looming deadlines this year and in 2015 got the attention of senior university management. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care? 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY
  • The expectations that universities need to sign up are listed here – their roadmaps need to demonstrate how they are going to deliver on these expectations by 2015. They include a commitment to keep data for 10 years after its last use – note, not just after the project ends. Some worry that this means they need to keep data for 100 years. I say that if your data is still being used (and cited) 100 years later you should break out the champagne, not worry about paying for it. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care? 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY
  • But EPSRC aren’t the only funders with requirements. Almost every UK research council, some international funders and charitable funders also have requirements about research data. Many place the onus for compliance on the researcher, not the institution. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care? 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY
  • What we’re doing involves a mixture of tools and services, advice, and on-site support. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care? 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY
  • The tools include DAF, which helps you discover what data exists, and CARDIO, which helps understand how well prepared the institution is for research data management services. The latter was developed jointly with colleagues from ULCC, using their expertise in maturity models for digital asset management and records management. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care? 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY
  • 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY They also include a service to help create data management plans that comply with a variety of funder requirements. It can also be customised to institutional requirements – and it is multilingual. There’s an equivalent tools for US funder requirements developed by a US consortium. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care?
  • We also produce guidance – much of it not specific to a UK context. I hope you’ve seen some of it. These two are of wide interest, and one was produced in collaboration with ANDS. I hope we’ll see far more of these. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care? 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY
  • The advice on data licencing is still of wide interest but inevitably has to make more account of the legal context in the UK. Although we’re supporters of open access our guidance is agnostic on the issue. It helps researchers understand how to achieve their desired ends using current legal frameworks, be that completely open data or highly protected data. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care? 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY
  • And finally we have our institutional engagement programme where we send in a team of consultants to train people, help them develop policy, use tools, and build bridges between professional groups. We also use this work to develop case studies to inform others. 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care?
  • You can read more about the programme on our web site. 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care?
  • So what relevance does this all have for you as repository managers ? Here are some examples. Your repositories might be extended to deal with research data, or for managing metadata about data held elsewhere (such as a national data centre.) Effective citation practice requires data and publications to be linked, and for that data requires persistent and resolvable identifiers. Above all, your institutions require policy that addresses research data. Most have developed specific policies – others have adapted existing ones. You can help devise them. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care? 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY
  • When you’ve got a policy, make it public. You can read about how the University of Edinburgh developed their policy in our journal, the International Journal of Digital Curaton. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care? 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY
  • Bath have released their EPSRC roadmap, of which institutional policy is just a part. They seem to prefer a pictorial approach. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care? 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY
  • The DCC provides access to funder and institutional policies on data in the UK and elsewhere. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care? 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY
  • I also recommend this guide on extending publication repositories to deal with data. It’s 3 years old now but much of what it says is still relevant. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care? 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY
  • But beware of treating data using a publication model. It doesn’t always fit – don’t force it to. And remember that often the right home for the data is elsewhere. That doesn’t mean you lose interest in it – you just allow a subject data centre (for instance) to use their expertise to give it a wider audience and a longer life. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care? 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY
  • What could your roles be ? Leadership is one. You can help build bridges between those in your institution that need to act – IT services, libraries, the research office and the academics themselves. Even without a repository for data you can give guidance to researchers about where to place data and on journal and funder policies about data publication. You can educate researchers about the benefits of being open with data. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care? 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY
  • Before I finish, a brief commercial interlude. Open Repositories 2012 is taking place in Edinburgh in a few weeks time – cheap rates are available until Monday and even after that it is excellent value. 14 workshops, 42 papers, 2 inspiring keynotes, 60 posters, many short presentations and the repository fringe. All in one of the UK’s most beautiful cities. Over 300 people are already registered and we would love to see you there. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care? 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY
  • If you want to know more about research data management the international digital curation conference is for you. It’s in Amsterdam next year in January. The call for submissions is now open. Every year I am inspired and learn a great deal from our speakers and the conversations that take place. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care? 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY
  • One of the ways you can motivate researchers and your institution is through research like this by Heather Piwowar. She shows that public data archiving has a marked positive effect on the science related to it – increased citation rates and reuse. Her work is paralleled in many other fields. And yesterday I heard of a pan-european survey that showed that although 90% of researchers would like to deposit research data in an appropriate repository, only 10% were able to. What could you do to improve that ? Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care? 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY
  • But at that point I’ll stop for questions. Research Data Management - what's happening and why should you care? 2012-06-15 Kevin Ashley, DCC; IRMW12, ULCC. CC-BY
