  1. 1. Open Data, FAIR Data, Research Data Management? Some clarifications Myriam Mertens | Ghent University Library Image CC0 by Patrick Hochstenbach
  2. 2. Open/FAIR are about making data available for reuse 2 Shift from traditional model of scholarly communication, where research data are undervalued & neglected Image CC-BY by Auke Herrema
  3. 3. Degrees of data sharing 3 OPEN RESTRICTED CLOSED “Can be freely used, modified & shared by anyone for any purpose” http://opendefinition.org Limits on who can access & use data, how, or for what purpose - only certain (types of) users - only certain types of use - … Under embargo Unable to share “As open as possible, as closed as necessary” Adapted from ‘Managing and sharing research data’ by S. Jones, CC-BY
  4. 4. FAIR data principles • Describe attributes that enable & enhance data re-use by humans and machines • Originated in the life sciences, but gaining much traction beyond • Spectrum: data can be FAIR to a greater or lesser degree 4 https://www.nature.com/articles/sdata201618 Adapted from ‘The FAIR data concept’, by S.

  5. 5. 5 It should be possible for others to discover your data. Rich metadata should be available online in a searchable resource, and the data should be assigned a persistent identifier (e.g. DOI, Handle…). It should be possible for humans and machines to gain access to your data, under specific conditions or restrictions where appropriate (i.e. data retrievable by their PID & by using a standard protocol such as http; authentication and authorization steps if necessary). There should be metadata, even if the data aren’t accessible. Data and metadata should be conform to recognized formats and standards to allow them to be combined & exchanged (file formats, metadata schemas, controlled vocabularies, keywords, ontologies, qualified references & links to other related data). Lots of documentation is needed to support data interpretation and reuse. It is clear how, why & by whom data were created & processed (provenance). The data should conform to community norms and be clearly licensed so others know what kinds of reuse are permitted.

  6. 6. FAIR vs. Open? Not synonyms - FAIR does not mean that data need to be open! 6 OPEN DATA FAIR DATA Data can both, one, or neither Also check out the ARDC FAIR self- assessment tool! Adapted from ‘FAIR data: what it means, how we achieve it, and the role of RDA’ by S. Jones, CC-BY
  7. 7. Why share data in the first place? 7Image CC-BY by Brian Hole
  8. 8. FAIR/open data require good RDM! The active management of research data throughout the lifecycle 8 Planning for data management Collecting or creating data Processing & analyzing data Preserving data Giving access to data Discovering & re-using data Adapted from ‘Managing and sharing research data’ by S.
