Building your Data Legacy

  1. 1. BUILDING YOUR DATA LEGACY MANAGING DATA ACROSS YOUR CAREER SLIDES: @VALUEMGMT CC-BY*: DR RICHARD FERRERS, ARDC *except where indicated. A Vision for 21st Century Research
  2. 2. ARDC - IMAGINING THE RESEARCH DATA COMMONS 20TH CENTURY RESEARCH ▸ Citations -> Grants ▸ Results -> Journal -> Citations ▸ Data -> drawer ▸ Focus: journal impact factor, citations, grants => Research in the age of the Journal
  3. 3. ARDC - EMPOWERING 21ST CENTURY RESEARCH WHAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH 20TH CENTURY RESEARCH? ▸ Scarcity and declining government research funding ▸ Power of journals, long delays in publishing ▸ Strong research competition for grants; low return on effort ▸ Deluge of literature; not enough time ▸ Incentives: promotion, funding due to citations, journal impact factor => stress, stress, stress
  4. 4. ARDC - ACCELERATING RESEARCH A VISION FOR 21ST CENTURY RESEARCH ▸ data intensive; data commons (FAIR) ▸ globally collaborative (FA) ▸ cross-disciplinary (IR) ▸ Focus; data/software/services -> impact -> value creation => research in the age of the Internet machine-actionable | scalable
  5. 5. OVERVIEW ▸ 1.The Problem; old v new; (Why?) ▸ 2.The Context; national and international perspectives (What?) ▸ 3.The AU Government solution; NCRIS -> ARDC (How?) ▸ 4.The ARDC Solution; the Australian Research Data Commons ▸ 5.Your personal Solution; Managing your data legacy (What next?)
