Working With Researchers on Data Management and Workflows for Archiving and Sharing of Data

  1. 1. working with researchers on data management and workflows for archiving and sharing of data or from the everyday life of an embedded data manager Fabian Cremer LIBER 43rd Annual Conference | July 2nd 2014
  2. 2. idea 2Fabian Cremer | working with researchers on data management | LIBER Conference | July 2nd 2014 | CC-BY 4.0 | Planning / Funding Data Collection Documen- tation Analysis / Processing Publication / Sharing RDM plan for proposal Repository Data Centre continuous RDM support apply for RDM project structuring / backup tools / infrastructure ingest / policies standards / monitoring • fill the gap and get RDM in the project phase • get RDM costs funded together with the project • transfer experiences and developments to institutional RDM support . o O

  4. 4. the researchers‘ dark side 4 • untrained • busy • focused • pressured • bad conscience • unconcerned • lazy • blinkered • selfish • indifferent (in their own words)
  5. 5. bridge heads 5 • being integral part of project • offering something that makes their workaday life easier • rising awareness for duties with providing ways to fulfill them • adapting general procedures to the individual situation *** Fabian Cremer | working with researchers on data management | LIBER Conference | July 2nd 2014 | CC-BY 4.0 |
  6. 6. shipwrecks 6 • not fitting into the researcher’s workflow • having no backup from above or no explicit authority • waiting for the researchers to come to you • transfer RDM material without adaption X Fabian Cremer | working with researchers on data management | LIBER Conference | July 2nd 2014 | CC-BY 4.0 |
  7. 7. field of work • provide a virtual server for a subproject application • write an Excel script for transformation of table data • moderate the development of a data sharing agreement • design a digital field report • classify the confidentiality level of a dataset • modelling a ERM for a subproject‘s database • search a suitable data centre for a certain dataset • evaluate software for image tagging and annotation • interview a researcher on her/his research • … 7 • set up a database and research infrastructure • individual data management plans for the researchers • ...
