    Research Information Management Research Information Management Presentation Transcript

    • Research Information Management Michael Day Research and Development Team Leader UKOLN, University of Bath JISC RIM programme Kick-off meeting, Leeds, 6 May 2010 UKOLN is supported by: www.ukoln.ac.uk A centre of expertise in digital information management
    • Agenda • UKOLN introduction • Data exchange for RIM – Context – Harmonisation – Data models • Programme support activities www.ukoln.ac.uk A centre of expertise in digital information management
    • UKOLN introduction • A centre of expertise in digital information management – Core funding from JISC and Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) – JISC Innovation Centre – Range of additional project-based activities – Based at the University of Bath • Some areas of interest: – Metadata standards development • DCMI, metadata application profiles, registries, SKOS, etc. – Repositories • Role in wider infrastructures, preservation roles – Digital preservation and curation • Research data management, Digital Curation Centre www.ukoln.ac.uk A centre of expertise in digital information management
    • RIM data exchange - Contexts • HEIs – Institutional level - convergence of several activities, e.g.: • Responses to research evaluation processes (REF) • Research grant management, business planning (research support offices) • Institutional repositories - as one of several potential providers of data on research outputs – Research staff • Staff Web pages, grant preparation, reporting • Funding body requirements – HEFCE (REF), research councils, other funding bodies, HESA • National infrastructures – Examples in Belgium (FRIS), Denmark (PURE), Norway (Frida), the Netherlands (METIS, linked to DAREnet repositories via NARCIS) www.ukoln.ac.uk A centre of expertise in digital information management
    • RIM data exchange - Harmonisation • A wide range of potential sources of data: – Bibliographic, e.g.: • Institutional publications databases (typically developed to support research evaluation) • Institutional repositories (source of metadata and/or full- text) • Web of Science, Scopus, publishers databases – Other, e.g.: • Administation: HR, Student administration, finance, research support • eResearch, VREs, etc. – Impact? • No single consistent approach – Challenges for the harmonisation of data www.ukoln.ac.uk A centre of expertise in digital information management
    • RIM data exchange – Data models • Standard data exchange model – Exchange format would facilitate data exchange between institutions, funding bodies (and potentially support a future national RIM infrastructure) – EXRI-UK report (December 2009) recommended exploring the potential of CERIF 2008 as a data exchange format – Several projects (DoTAC, Readiness4REF, St Andrews and Aberdeen projects) have attempted to map their own data models to CERIF – Detailed questions about harmonisation of data structures, vocabularies and syntax remain • Potential alternative approaches: – Linked Data (RDF), OAI-ORE (e.g. UCLA project on seismology data) www.ukoln.ac.uk A centre of expertise in digital information management
    • UKOLN RIM Support Activity • RIM Web pages: http://www.ukoln.ac.uk/rim/ • Series of briefing documents: – Data exchange requirements • Institutional drivers • Funding bodies • UK infrastructure needs – RIM Data exchange standards • CERIF • Linked Data • Workshop series (e.g. to explore details of data harmonisation) • Case studies: – Data exchange scenarios • Support e-mail list (or helpdesk) www.ukoln.ac.uk A centre of expertise in digital information management
    • Other UKOLN activities • Knowledge Exchange CRIS-OAR interoperability project – Collaboration between funding bodies in UK, Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands • Organisational identifiers scoping study – Planning currently underway – Draft scheduled for August 2010 www.ukoln.ac.uk A centre of expertise in digital information management
