  5. 5. TERN Portals:(1) TERN’s context within the research data environment (2)The vision for the TERN portal(s)2011 TERN Symposium<br />
  6. 6. (1) TERN’s context within the research data environment <br />Relationship to existing data collection & distribution<br />Data definition(s)?<br />Open access data sets<br />Future needs for data collection and integration<br />

  11. 11. Data set definition(s)?<br />A description of the research question(s)<br />a description of the context of the field experiment<br />a description of the experimental set-up<br />report(s) containing raw measurementdata<br />description of methods and script(s) of algorithms used to process the data<br />report(s) containing processed data<br />report(s) containing analysis and published results (if any)<br />
  12. 12. Open access (OA) data sets <br />OA data is not common good. It is owned by the researchers who generated the data.<br />Access to OA data is not unrestricted. Access to data is done via a gatekeeper who can restrict access to data sets depending on need and application.<br />Use of OA data is not unconditional. Users of the TERN data have to abide by clearly stated and enforceable rules.<br />OA data is not cost-free. TERN funds the installation and ongoing upkeep of infrastructure that is critical to the collection, storage, dissemination and re-use of the data.<br />

  15. 15. Goals for TERN’s Portals<br />SCIENCE<br /><ul><li>Establish “long term” science as a priority for terrestrial ecosystem research
  16. 16. Enable key ecosystem science groups to plan and organise long-term infrastructure and support</li></ul>TECHNOLOGY<br /><ul><li>Encourage the long-term sound data management practices by including data production and citation as research performance indicators
  17. 17. Set the foundations for a permanently-held and curated data archive</li></ul>PEOPLE<br /><ul><li>Develop a network of “long term” research scientists
  18. 18. Identify and organise groups to access suitable long term funding</li></li></ul><li>Strategy for Developing TERN’s Portals<br /><ul><li>TERN is promoting an open access approach to ecosystem research data by:</li></ul>SCIENCE<br /><ul><li>The development and promotion of methods and tools for increased and improved re-use of data</li></ul>TECHNOLOGY<br /><ul><li>The development and deployment of a nationwide, robust and open cyber-infrastructure</li></ul>PEOPLE<br /><ul><li>Produce a paradigm shift in the practice of sharing, uploading and re-using research data sets</li></li></ul><li>Strategies for Developing TERN’s Portals <br />Building Australia’s terrestrial ecosystem data store<br />Leverage existing large data stores.<br />Fund large-scale data collection programs.<br />Improve access to data for re-use<br />Use existing protocols to document and store data<br />Validate data against current standards before making them available to the research community.<br />
  19. 19. Proposed Architecture for TERN’s Portals<br />TERN Facility portals<br />SCIENCE<br />Data are peer-reviewed<br /> Data stored for disciplinary research and analysis<br />TECHNOLOGY<br />Specialist metadata standards<br /> Domain-specific tools<br />PEOPLE<br />Local portal for a group of researchers<br /> The portal is the result of a partnership<br />TERN-wide portal<br />SCIENCE<br /> Data are reviewed by experts<br /> Data stored as a resource for data synthesis and eScience<br />TECHNOLOGY<br />Generalist m’data standards<br /> Cross-disciplinary tools<br />PEOPLE<br />Central gateway for the ecosystem research community<br /> The portal is the result of a collaboration<br />
