Donatella Castelli presents the outcomes and conclusions of the Data catalogues workshop organised by BlueBRIDGE at the RDA meeting | OSFair2017 Workshop

Workshop title: How FAIR friendly is your data catalogue?

Workshop overview:
This workshop will build upon the work planned by the EOSCpilot data interoperability task and the BlueBridge workshop held on April 3 at the RDA meeting. We will investigate common mechanisms for interoperation of data catalogues that preserve established community standards, norms and resources, while simplifying the process of being/becoming FAIR. Can we have a simple interoperability architecture based on a common set of metadata types? What are the minimum metadata requirements to expose FAIR data to EOSC services and EOSC users?

  3. 3. Q&A (1) How could the EOSC catalogue facility be implemented? • A “Catalogue of catalogues” where existing catalogues can be national, institutional, discipline or project specific ones • There are several infrastructures and initiatives that are already making an effort to integrate data and metadata from multiple catalogues. The EOSC Catalogue can rely on the work already done by these initiatives. • It is certainly unrealistic at the moment to assume that the EOSC Catalogue can be built by asking to all the existing component catalogues to adopt common metadata standards and interfaces. • In the meantime, more pragmatic solutions, based on ad-hoc transformations and mediators that do not necessarily require considerable changes in existing catalogues should be put in place. In parallel, actions can be done to progressively introduce shared guidelines starting from very simple ones. How FAIR Friendly is Your Data Catalogue?, Open Science FAIR, 8 September 2017, Athens
  4. 4. Q&A (2) Should EOSC aim at introducing a single, even if minimal, common pivot metadata format that is used by each infrastructure to publish data outside its boundaries? • A minimal common metadata format with associated protocols can be useful for discovering available resources. However, findable data is depending on rich use of metadata. Semantic metadata description can better facilitate discoverability. • Richest metadata formats can be complex to adopt, but have the advantage to make the data more “usable”. • The adoption of metadata standards (e.g. INSPIRE, OGC etc.) already used by Research Infrastructures and e-Infrastructures should be promoted. • Best practices of publishing metadata in multiple formats should be encouraged.

  5. 5. Q&A (3) Currently each infrastructure has its own publication policies. Should EOSC impose a set of common policies on what, when and under which conditions data can be published in the catalogue? • A clear set of guidelines and recommendations for the data providers should be envisaged with regards to the provided metadata and to the underlying data collections. • The recommendation is that the common policies focus initially on ensuring that the data is FAIR. Disseminating and pushing to create a FAIR culture is the way to go. • Looking for greater consistency on data licenses would be the next thing to tackle. • EU-funded research could impose a common policy, but any research community should be able to have its own policy • Relying on clustering initiatives (e.g. ESFRIs) is probably a good opportunity to be sure that communities are involved and adopting policies How FAIR Friendly is Your Data Catalogue?, Open Science FAIR, 8 September 2017, Athens
