  • 1. Policies and InfrastructureTen Recommendations on Research Data Management - What's Next? Scholarly Communication and Research Infrastructures Steering Group Wolfram Horstmann Associate Director, Bodleian Libraries, University of Oxford e-mail: wolfram.horstmann@bodleian.ox.ac.uk
  • 2. Today  Two examples – one medium, one large scale  Commonalities and differences  Reflections
  • 3. Bielefeld: central RDM activities  Research Data Policy: “Principles”  Fully library led  IT Services provide servers and storage  Coordination post funded by the University  Focus group with leading academics  Colloquium Knowledge Infrastructure
  • 4. Bielefeld: centrally supported RDM activities  Data-Service Centre “Business and Organisational Data”  Infrastructure for Collaborative Research Project (50PIs, 12 Years) “From Heterogeneity to Inequality”  Excellence Cluster “Cognitive Interaction Robotics” (100PIs, 10 years)  Services: metadata, DOIs, storage, VMs, software, calendars, websites…  Storage and housing in IT Services
  • 5. Bielefeld: local RDM activities  The majority!  Desktops, departmental servers, Drop-Box etc.  Several larger specific RDM activities  Computer Science  Biotechnology/Nanotechnology  Spectroscopic Services (multi-department)  Physics  …
  • 6. Oxford: central RDM activities  RDM Policy  RDM working group  Multi-agency approach with Research Services, IT Services, Library, eResearch and Divisions  Externally funded projects for development (e.g. JISC)  Research Services Website  Research Data Planning Tool  DataBank  DataStage  DataFinder etc.
  • 7. Oxford: centrally supported RDM activities  Training in Doctoral Training Centres  Storage and housing in IT Services  Generic, on demand services, e.g. DOIs, preservation in the libraries  Digital Humanities specialization in the libraries  (…Rollout yet to come)
  • 8. Oxford: local RDM activities  The majority!  Desktops, departmental servers, Drop-Box etc.  Several (really large) specific RDM activities  Medical Sciences  Supercomputing  Physics  …
  • 9. Commonalities  Mix of central, centrally supported and local stuff  Start with a policy  Collaboration of the library, IT and research services
  • 10. Differences  Bielefeld with vertical rollout  Funding through subject specific research  University supports coordination post  Seeks to connect generic aspects of subject-specific services  Oxford with horizontal rollout  Funding for generic tools  University develops RDM business models  Seeks to adapt to subject specificity during roll out of generic services
  • 11. Rollout model Vertical Humanities Social Sciences Science & Technology Medicine Subject specific services Generic Services Horizontal Humanities Social Sciences Science & Technology Medicine Generic Services Subject specific services
  • 12. Reflections on the LIBER recommendations  4. Actively participate in institutional research data policy development, including resource plans. Encourage and adopt open data policies where appropriate in the research data life cycle.  Contact University administration with concrete proposals  Build partnerships with individuals in administration  Make your numbers – there is nothing more effective than having a price tag and benchmarking with competitors
  • 13. Reflections on the LIBER recommendations  9. Get involved in subject specific data management practice.  Liaise with researchers for common projects (as service partner)  Provide a PI role through the libraries  Identify library champions and encourage them to speak with researchers
  • 14. Reflections on the LIBER recommendations  10. Offer or mediate secure storage for dynamic and static research data in co-operation with institutional IT units and/or seek exploitation of appropriate cloud services.  Work with IT Services, on the basis of a requirement spec.  Prepare very simple explanations for storage, preservation and publication  And, again, numbers…
  • 15. Take home message  RDM works (only) in partnership  Locally  with researchers, research services, IT services  Nationally and internationally  with subject specific data services, funders, organisations such as LIBER
