  1. 1. Natasha Simons Introduction to Research Data Management (RDM) 31 May 2018 C3DIS, Melbourne
  2. 2. Today’s workshop Introduction to research data management – Natasha Simons Making your data FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable): standards for describing and publishing data, linking data to other research outputs, supporting machine readability of data and licensing your data – Carmi Cronje and Anne Stevenson 10.30am morning tea break How to manage your ‘working data’: data storage infrastructure, backup, file naming and sharing - John Morrissey Managing personal and sensitive data – Natasha Simons Data Management Plans – Sue Cook
  3. 3. What is Research Data? Research data means: data in the form of facts, observations, images, computer program results, recordings, measurements or experiences on which an argument, theory, test or hypothesis, or another research output is based. Data may be numerical, descriptive, visual or tactile. It may be raw, cleaned or processed, and may be held in any format or media. But this is only one definition of many….

  6. 6. What’s Research Data Management? Research Data Management covers the planning, collecting, organising, managing, storage, security, backing up, preserving, and sharing your data. It ensures that research data are managed according to legal, statutory, ethical and funding body requirements. Source: UQ LibGuide Any research will require some level of data management.

  7. 7. Why should you care about RDM? Good data management can: • Increase the efficiency of your research • Help guarantee the quality and authenticity of your data • Enable the exposure of your research outcomes through collaboration and dissemination • Provide for the reproducibility of experimental and computational outcomes • Facilitate the validation and verification of results.

  8. 8. More publishers require data A condition of publication in a Nature journal is that authors are required to make materials, data, code, and associated protocols promptly available to readers without undue qualifications.
  9. 9. More funders require data “We want the research we fund – like publications, data, software and materials – to be open and accessible, so it can have the greatest possible impact” – Wellcome Trust NHMRC’s Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research: includes the proper management and retention of the research data. Australian Research Council (ARC) application forms (Discovery; Linkage) have a short section where you are required to provide an outline of your data management plan.

  10. 10. More government policies on data The main purpose of the site is to encourage public access to and reuse of public data. It was created following the Government’s Declaration of Open Government and as a response to the Government 2.0 Taskforce Report.

  12. 12. More researchers care about data sharing Figshare open data survey of researchers 2017: • 82% aware of open data sets • 80% willing to reuse open data sets in own research • 60% routinely share their data (frequently or sometimes) • 21% have never made a data set openly available • 74% are now curating their data for sharing • 77% value a data citation the same as an article Science, Digital (2017): The State of Open Data 2017 Report - Infographic. figshare. pp. 7-11
  13. 13. More researchers are sharing their data More than two thirds of Wiley researchers reported they are now sharing their data. Though this varies geographically and across research disciplines we are seeing that more researchers are sharing their data and taking efforts to make it reproducible.

  15. 15. Key messages • Any definition of research data is likely to depend on the context in which the question is asked. • Any research will require some level of data management. • Good data management can increase the efficiency of your research and enable the exposure of your research outcomes through collaboration and dissemination • More publishers, funders, governments and institutions require data management and sharing • More researchers care about data sharing and are sharing their own data • Data sharing models can be open/shared/closed
