What the future holds: Metadata and Document Repositories Stanislav Nazarenko (OKI)

  1. 1. What the future holds: Metadata and Document Repositories Open Access: Tackling health inequalities 25 October 2016
  2. 2. Information in Digital Age Advantages of digital media Easy to store, 100% lossless preservation, easy to copy Worldwide access Realities of digital preservation Less copies than we think Deterioration of storage media, outdated hardware to read it (tapes, floppy disks, CDROM etc) Legacy formats – old software can’t run on modern PCs Threat of the Digital Dark Age Challenges with access to information Private data repositories exist only as long as funding is provided Research funded by the public is often available only behind paywalls Digital divide and barriers to access public interest information We have solutions to many aspects of information inequality but it requires everyone to participate and change their data management processes
  3. 3. Example: Research Data 80% of researchers will not be able to provide the data 3 years after completing the research. * Prof. Dr. Mark Ferguson, Science Foundation Ireland * we believe that is probably a slight understatement
  4. 4. Pilot: Open Document Repository
  5. 5. The Future of Document Repositories Technology LOD (Linked Open Data) IPFS (Inter-Planetary File System) Blockchain (technology behind Bitcoin) Benefits Shared storage model: no single point of failure, data owned by all parties Transparency in regards to provenance, modification: not through trust but as a mathematical proof Participation and engagement: direct collaboration and decision-making
  6. 6. Your Role Sustainable data management practices Open by default Consistent meta-data FAIR principles http://ec.europa.eu/research/press/2016/pdf/opendata-infographic_072016.pdf
