  • 2012-06-12 Kevin Ashley, DCC, Nordbib Copenhagen. 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. Research Data Management - The UK National Change Programme
  • 2012-06-12 Kevin Ashley, DCC, Nordbib Copenhagen. CC-BY I hardly need remind this audience why we should care about research data management. But it’s worth recapping, because these are the things that motivated government to invest in this programme. 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. Research Data Management - The UK National Change Programme
  • 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. Research Data Management - The UK National Change Programme 2012-06-12 Kevin Ashley, DCC, Nordbib Copenhagen. 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 - The UK National Change Programme 2012-06-12 Kevin Ashley, DCC, Nordbib Copenhagen. 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 - The UK National Change Programme 2012-06-12 Kevin Ashley, DCC, Nordbib Copenhagen. CC-BY
  • Those external pressures include those from funders such as EPSRC; Tony Hey referenced them in his talk yesterday. Looming deadlines this year and in 2012 got the attention of senior university management. Research Data Management - The UK National Change Programme 2012-06-12 Kevin Ashley, DCC, Nordbib Copenhagen. CC-BY
  • The expectations that universities need to sign up to 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 - The UK National Change Programme 2012-06-12 Kevin Ashley, DCC, Nordbib Copenhagen. CC-BY
  • What we’re doing involves a mixture of tools and services, advice, and on-site support. Research Data Management - The UK National Change Programme 2012-06-12 Kevin Ashley, DCC, Nordbib Copenhagen. 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. Research Data Management - The UK National Change Programme 2012-06-12 Kevin Ashley, DCC, Nordbib Copenhagen. CC-BY
  • 2012-06-12 Kevin Ashley, DCC, Nordbib Copenhagen. 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 - The UK National Change Programme
  • 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 - The UK National Change Programme 2012-06-12 Kevin Ashley, DCC, Nordbib Copenhagen. 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. Research Data Management - The UK National Change Programme 2012-06-12 Kevin Ashley, DCC, Nordbib Copenhagen. 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. 2012-06-12 Kevin Ashley, DCC, Nordbib Copenhagen. CC-BY Research Data Management - The UK National Change Programme
