Cross-linked metadata standards, repositories and the data policies - The BioSharing Information and Education Resource (Research Data Alliance (RDA) 8th Plenary)

Download to read offline

A 20 minute presentation given in Denver (CO) on the 17th September as part of the Biosharing Registry WG, Metadata Standards Catalog WG, and Publishing Data Workflows WG joint session at the Research Data Alliance 8th Plenary (part of International Data Week).

This presentation covers the explosion of metadata standards and databases in the life, biomedical and environmental sciences and how BioSharing is helping to understand this landscape, both in terms of the relationship between standards and other standards and databases, and the life cycle and evolution of each resource. BioSharing also links these resources to the data policies that recommend them (for example, from funding agencies or journal publishers), enabling an understanding of the entire data cycle, from conception to publishing and storage.

Cross-linked metadata standards, repositories and the data policies - The BioSharing Information and Education Resource (Research Data Alliance (RDA) 8th Plenary)

  1. 1. BioSharing.org Cross-linked metadata standards, repositories and the data policies - The BioSharing Information and Education Resource Biosharing Registry WG, Metadata Standards Catalog WG, Publishing Data Workflows WG International Data Week, RDA 8TH Plenary, Denver, 17th September, 2016 Peter McQuilton BioSharing Content Lead @biosharing
  2. 2. Outline • What is BioSharing? • How do we describe and link standards? • Exploring the landscape of standards, databases and data policies in the life sciences • The BioSharing RDA/FORCE 11 WG – working with the community
  3. 3. What is BioSharing? A web-based, curated and searchable portal that monitors the development and evolution of standards, their use in databases and the adoption of both in data policies, to inform and educate the user community.
  4. 4. What is BioSharing? Standards are digital objects too and we make them FAIR
  5. 5. Data policies by funders, journals and other organizations (>100) Database, tools and services (>1000) Content standards (>700) Complex and evolving landscape Formats Terminologies Guidelines
  6. 6. Helping users make the right decision
  7. 7. How do we describe and link standards
  8. 8. Linking standards and databases to training material
  9. 9. Ready for use, implementation, or recommendation In development Status uncertain Deprecated as subsumed or superseded Manually curated, approved by the community Using indicators to describe the ‘status’ of a resource
  10. 10. https://biosharing.org/collection/EuroBioImaging
  11. 11. Discover standards, databases, policies, and their relationships
  12. 12. Collections group together one or more types of resource by domain, project or organization. Recommendations are a core-set of resources that are selected and recommended by a funder or journal data policy. Different cuts of the data
  13. 13. “BioSharing and its interactive browser will allow us to discover which databases and standards are not currently included in our author guidelines, enabling us to regularly monitor and refine our policies as appropriate, in support of our mission to help our authors enhance the reproducibility of their work.” – Holly Murray, F1000Research
  14. 14. What we do Inform – what’s out there, which databases use which standards. Map the landscape. Educate – what databases are recommended by your funder, or journal of choice, which standards should you be using, which standards and databases should you recommend? Explore the landscape.
  15. 15. Aims of the BioSharing WG • To develop principles for linking information on databases, content standards and journal and funder data policies in the life sciences • To develop a curated registry (running since 2011), to access and cross-search this information, such that a variety of stakeholders can make decisions on which standards and databases to use or endorse
  16. 16. Standards Registry Survey: • 533 responses from RDA, FORCE11, NIH (US), ELIXIR (UK) • Provides a review of BioSharing content and functionality • Defines BioSharing activities under the US NIH BD2K initiative, and the European excelerate interoperability package • 10 questions, detailing content, functionality and indicators of standards maturity/use etc. BioSharing Standards Survey – January 2016
  17. 17. The Standards Registry Survey Shows: • BioSharing already fulfills ~80% of user needs, which: • are not limited to standards but extend to databases and policies • require an (curated) informational and educational system, not simply a registry. • BioSharing is uniquely positioned because of its cross- linked content types, functionalities, community endorsement and user base. BioSharing Standards Survey – January 2016
