  9. 9. Getting started with research data • What "research data" are we talking about? Thing 1
  10. 10. • Open up this record of research data collected during a CSIRO voyage which explored the sea floor (i.e. Benthic zone) of the Marmion Lagoon, located just off Perth, in 2007 Thing 1
  11. 11. • Click on Data tab Thing 1
  12. 12. • Protein Data Bank Thing 1

  16. 16. Issues in research data management Research data is for everyone. Governments and universities all around Australia and the world are now encouraging researchers to better manage their data so others can use it. Research data might be critical to solving the big questions of our time, but so much data are being lost or poorly managed. Thing 2
  17. 17. Issues in research data management • https://www.yout ube.com/watch? v=66oNv_DJuPc • As you watch the cartoon note the data management mistakes which interest or appal you. Thing 2
  18. 18. Issues in research data management "Big Data" is a term we're hearing with increasing frequency. Data management for Big Data brings much complexity - citing dynamic data, software, high volume compute, storage costs, transfer of petabytes of data, preservation, provenance, more. • Read this post and presentation titled: "Big Data: The 5Vs Everyone Must Know.

  27. 27. • Laboratory Notebooks are used by researchers to formally record their research activities. As research has become increasingly digital and collaborative the utility of traditional hard copy Lab Notebooks has been challenged. Not surprisingly then, eLab Notebooks (ELN) have emerged as an alternative. • Effective data management for constantly updated data, such as that within ELNs, is a real challenge for projects who wish to publish their data during the project. Thing 2 Issues in research data management
  28. 28. • Definition Electronic lab notebook (ELN) software allows scientists to access, search and share results of their experiments. An ELN is essentially a computer program that is meant to replace traditional paper laboratory notebooks so that scientists and researchers can search their records more easily and have more efficient means to backup and copy their data onto other electronic devices. ELNs encourage collaboration, as it is possible for multiple researchers or scientists to view lab data at the same time. ELNs also have the capacity to work alongside other research instruments so that additional data can be incorporated quickly and efficiently. ELNs should be supported by strong security measures to ensure that the data and the researchers’ process of creating the data are not jeopardized in any way. Additionally ELNs should be flexible to change if a particular research process is altered or new data is required. This flexibility is best addressed when developing the specific software for an ELN. Thing 2 Issues in research data management
  29. 29. • International team of scientists open sources search for malaria cure about how an international team of scientists and citizen scientists are using open source ELNs to speed up a cure for malaria. Thing 2 Issues in research data management

  33. 33. Data in the research lifecycle • Data and its management change over time. Here we look at data and research lifecycles and make connections between them. • Data often have a longer lifespan than the research project that creates them. • Follow-up projects may analyse or add to the data, and data may be reused by other researchers. • Journals publishers are increasingly mandating that the data underpinning a journal article be retained and made accessible for the long term. Thing 3
  34. 34. Data in the research lifecycle • A data lifecycle shows the different phases a dataset goes through as the research project moves from o "having a brilliant idea" to o "making ground breaking discoveries" to o "telling the world about it" Thing 3 http://www.data-archive.ac.uk/create- manage/life-cycle

  46. 46. Data Discovery • Repositories enable discovery of data by publishing data descriptions ("metadata") about the data they hold - like a library catalogue describes the materials held in a library. • Most repositories provide access to the data itself, but not always. Thing 4
  47. 47. Data Discovery • Data portals or aggregators draw together research data records from a number of repositories. • eg Research Data Australia (RDA) aggregates records from over 100 Australian research repositories. • https://researchdata.ands.org.au/measuring-effects-human-leptonychotes- weddellii/640511/ Thing 4

  55. 55. Data Discovery Thing 4 What makes a "good" data repository?
  56. 56. Data Discovery Thing 4 DCC checklist for evaluating data repositories What does this checklist cover and what does it exclude? Choosing a long-term service to look after data means asking questions similar to those you ask when choosing a publisher; ‘if I hand this over, will they review it, safeguard the content, and make sure it is accessible for as long as it is of value?’ This checklist relates these questions to the following key considerations: 1. Is a reputable repository available? 2. Will it take the data you want to deposit? 3. Will it be safe in legal terms? 4. Will the repository sustain the data value? 5. Will it support analysis and track data usage? See more at: http://www.dcc.ac.uk/resources/how-guides-checklists/where-keep- research-data#1
