  5. 5. What do we mean by research data? What is Research Data? “It is not possible to apply a uniform definition of research data across all disciplines. Research data may be numerical, textual, audio-visual, digital or physical, depending on the discipline and the nature of the research.” Source: University of Sydney Research Data Management Policy 2014 http://sydney.edu.au/policies/showdoc.aspx?recnum=PDOC2013/337

  8. 8. The Data Deluge “Data is more like soup – it’s messy and you don’t know what’s in it.” – Liz Lyon (UK DCC) “I worry there won't be enough people around to do the analysis.” –Chris Ponting (University of Oxford UK, Computational biologist) “A single DNA sequencer can now generate in a day what it took 10 years to collect for the Human Genome Project. Computers are central to archiving and analysing this information, but their processing power isn’t increasing fast enough, and their costs are decreasing too slowly, to keep up with the deluge.” - Elizabeth Pennisi (Science Author)

  15. 15. OECD cares about research data Access to research data increases the returns from public investment in this area; reinforces open scientific inquiry; encourages diversity of studies and opinion; promotes new areas of work and enables the exploration of topics not envisioned by the initial investigators. (OECD principles and guidelines for access to research data from public funding 2007) http://www.oecd.org/sti/sci-tech/oecdprinciplesandguidelinesforaccesstoresearchdatafrompublicfunding.htm
  16. 16. Governments care about research data The Australian Government now declares that, in order to promote greater participation in Australia’s democracy, it is committed to open government based on a culture of engagement, built on better access to and use of government held information, and sustained by the innovative use of technology. Declaration of Open Government
  17. 17. Governments care about research data
  18. 18. Governments care about research data “Open access to information held by the State Government will help stimulate the development of new, innovative applications by all sorts of private individuals, companies and non-government organisations” – Campbell Newman 9 Oct 2012 http://statements.qld.gov.au/Statement/2012/10/9/queensland- governments-open-data-revolution-begins
  19. 19. FUNDERS care about research data Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (NHMRC, 2007) Section 2: Management of Research Data & Primary Materials “The responsible conduct of research includes the proper management and retention of the research data. …The central aim is that sufficient materials and data are retained to justify the outcomes of the research and to defend them if they are challenged. The potential value of the material for further research should also be considered, particularly where the research would be difficult or impossible to repeat.” https://www.nhmrc.gov.au/guidelines/publications/r39
  20. 20. ARC Discovery Grant requirements, February 2014: MANAGEMENT OF DATA Outline plans for the management of data produced as a result of the proposed research, including but not limited to storage, access and re-use arrangements. FUNDERS care about research data
  21. 21. The Public Library of Science PLOS Data Sharing policy: PLOS journals require authors to make all data underlying the findings described in their manuscript fully available without restriction, with rare exception. From March 2014, you will need to include a “data availability statement” when you submit your article, explaining where and how your data can be accessed. PUBLISHERS care about research data http://www.plosone.org/static/policies#sharing
  22. 22. Nature “An inherent principle of publication is that others should be able to replicate and build upon the authors' published claims. Therefore, a condition of publication in a Nature journal is that authors are required to make materials, data and associated protocols promptly available to readers without undue qualifications”. PUBLISHERS care about research data http://www.nature.com/authors/policies/availability.html
  23. 23. British Journal of Educational Technology “BJET strongly encourages authors of articles describing empirical research to make their data available to others, for example through an institutional or other repository. If this is not possible then it will not necessarily preclude publication in the Journal, but you should note that it is one of the criteria by which your work will be assessed.”. PUBLISHERS care about research data

  30. 30. INSTITUTIONS care about research data UWA Code of Conduct for the Responsible Practice of Research http://www.research.uwa.edu.au/staff/research-policy/guidelines Section 2 refers to the management of research data and primary materials and states: 2.1 Data (including electronic data) must be recorded in a durable and appropriately referenced form. 2.2 Data must be held for sufficient time to allow access and reference. Recommended a minimum 5 years from date publication, but up to 15 years for specific types (eg clinical studies) 2.3 Wherever possible, original data must be retained in the school or research centre in which it was generated... In all cases, prior to the publication of research findings a Location of Data Form must be completed. These guidelines should be seen as a framework for sound research practice and for the protection of individual research workers, including both staff and postgraduate research students, from possible misunderstandings.
  31. 31. Research Data Management 101 Benefits of Research Data Management Allows for data replication or reproducibility. Increases the accuracy or reliability of the data. Ensures research data integrity. Improves research process. Encourages systematic documentation and descriptions of the research data. Provides guidelines and procedures ensuring consistency. Allows data validation and verification. Enables collaborative research opportunities. Prevents duplication. Allows data sharing and future reuse. Increases researcher citations.
  32. 32. DATA REUSE and Open Data Citation advantages The citation benefit intensified over time...  ...with publications from 2004 and 2005 cited 30 per cent more often if their data was freely available.  Every 100 papers with open data prompted 150 "data reuse papers" within five years  Original authors tended to use their data for only two years, but others re-used it for up to six years. Piwowar HA, Vision TJ. (2013) Data reuse and the open data citation advantage. PeerJ 1:e175 http://dx.doi.org/10.7717/peerj.175

  46. 46. Recent Case Study IRDS vs Pawsey Supercomputing HDR student query I have been using iVec (Pawsey) to work on my data with my collaborators overseas. When I’m finished, to meet WAUSDA requirements, can I store it there for a minimum of 7 years? Our response No, Pawsey doesn’t comply with WAUSDA standards. • Continue to use Pawsey to work on your data. • Be aware that Pawsey is funding dependent. • They do not provide a long- term storage solution. • The IRDS is more suitable to meet the long term storage needs/requirements of UWA researchers
  47. 47. Recent Case Study IRDS vs Dropbox HDR student query Can I use Dropbox to transfer confidential data from international companies for my research at UWA? • Confidentiality? • Is encryption ok? • Other cloud storage options? Our response Technically, yes, but should you? • Contracts/Agreements with data providers? • Seek advice from Legal Services • No charge for < 2GB ; but >2GB=$$ • Allows access to collaborators. • Confidential data may not be safe. The data is being stored overseas. • Not managed, maintained or stored by UWA.

  51. 51. Recent Case Study IRDS vs Dropbox HDR student query Can I use Dropbox to transfer confidential data from international companies for my research at UWA? • Confidentiality? • Is encryption ok? • Other cloud storage options? Our response IRDS would be an excellent choice • Data is stored locally. • The IRDS maintained and supported by UWA (Service Desk Support 24/7) • Encouraged for long-term storage and can be used to comply with WAUSDA. – “Research records must be retained for a minimum of 7 years after the date of publication or project completion, whichever is later.”
