Evidence shows that all forms of research output have a role in increasing the impact and value of research. Data is particularly valuable, which is why research funders are placing so much emphasis on its retention, management and discoverability. However, few universities have data collections large enough to make their data globally visible, and few have the resources to connect data held locally with data in international data centres.
Jisc’s data registry service plans to cost-effectively solve this problem for universities, whilst also providing feedback for them and their researchers on how to increase the impact of their research data. This session will explain the goals and approach of the pilot, relate it to lessons from other countries and in government open data, and explain how Jisc and the community can work together to drive future developments in data discovery.
