  1. 1. Research Data SpringTowards Phase 3 #Dataspring: Streamlining Deposit10 December 2015
  2. 2. #dataspring: Streamlining Deposit Streamlining Deposit @StreamDepo »City University London and Ubiquity Press Collaboration »Within City, collaboration between the Centre for Information Science and the Centre for Human Computer Interaction Design »Over the past 3 months, the Open Library of Humanities got involved as Ubiquity Press partners, as well as the Giving researchers credit for their data #dataspring project »Figshare, the Public Knowledge Project and the Open Library of Humanities volunteered to help 2

  4. 4. #dataspring: Streamlining Deposit Valuation »Depositing in Open Access repositories is expensive, complicated and time-consuming »We proposed an open source, shared solution to streamline the deposit of accepted outputs in OJS-based journals directly to repositories from the journal interface itself. »Open source and extensive, international base of OJS/PKP journal community would ensure its sustainability. 13/07/2015 4
  5. 5. #dataspring: Streamlining Deposit Progress »What we achieved »Conducted a UX study of OJS users to understand better OJS user behaviour re: submission & depositing and how to improve journal management systems. »Developed a plug-in to allow authors to deposit accepted Open Access articles and supplementary data in Figshare directly from OJS-based Journals. »Produced a UX evaluation of the plug-in and the submission interface. 5
  6. 6. Challenges and Progress 6 Although we’ve continued to have problems on the administrative side (now resolved, yay!), we’ve started pushing on and make some progress on the technology side including: - Updating underlying tech to handle multiple repositories - Adding an Editor interface so that the editor can view and select which files should be published alongside the paper - Completed the upload and response process for the Figshare API - and started this process for the dryad plugin - Undertaken an expert UX review - Started implementing recommended changes to the interface - Started adding interfaces for displaying published data alongside galleys
