  • The UK Digital Curation Centre was established in 2004. We’re based across three universities, and have a remit to support UK Higher Education as a whole.Our mission has changed over time from a focus on digital curation and preservation, working largely with archives and repositories, to research data management in universities.
  • The DCC has four main strands of activity:We develop tools to help organisations assess their infrastructure & capabilities or to undertake specific tasks e.g. writing DMPs with DMP OnlineWe run a helpdesk, which is open to all, and provide guidance. How To guides are a new range of pragmatic, practical advice.We run training and community building events. The roadshows help institutions develop research data management strategiesWe support JISC by co-ordinating events, working with projects and synthesising/disseminating findings.
  • We’ll talk more about some of these shortly, but first we’ll give a snapshot of the current UK ‘scene’…

  • Point out that although funders like the ESRC have been asking for data for years (apparently since 2001 or something like that), and that until recently these requirements have been poorly enforced (very little incentive for researchers to comply - they still got their grant money!), the funders are now under external pressure to ensure that researchers do provide data. So things are changing and the old 'lax' system is being replaced by one that that is more stringent.
  • Also point out that funders are placing emphasis on :- collaboration - interdisciplinary research- public dissemination of research outputs- funding for secondary analysis (eg new ESRC funding call >10 million) ...which makes it increasingly important to make sure that other people can make sense of your data.

  • Whole range of support and services we can offer. The focus depends on what each institution wants.
  • There are typically a few things we do with each HEI e.g. roadmaps. The focus depends on what they need.
  • All of these tools were developed as prototypes in first MRD programme and have been selected to be developed as shared services for wider benefit
  • Online training modules using Xerte online toolkits.Developed for three disciplines so fairly generic.Included software tutorials e.g. SPSS
  • Examples of collating and raising awareness of support that is already in place – quick win
  • Psychology-specific guidance now built into DMP OnlineAlso includes great workbook (as PhDs asked for paper-based support as well as online) explaining significance of questions and example answers
  • An institutional research data infrastructure project, based at the University of Nottingham.Has a very comprehensive approach, great buy-in from the whole range of stakeholders and lots of useful expertise from associated services based there e.g. Repository Support Project, Sherpah team…One to watch!
