Data Description Registry Interoperability WG at Research Data Alliance Third Plenary

  1. 1. Data Description Registry Interoperability (WG) co-chairs: Amir Aryani, Adrian Burton
  2. 2. Agenda: • working group goal/objective • participants • discussion about o the challenges for cross-platform discovery o the collaboration opportunities with other groups​
  3. 3. Meeting notes: • http://goo.gl/zUxhaV • Also posted by • @amir_at_ands • #RDAPlenary
  4. 4. What is the problem? Cross-platform discovery • So many places to search • Research data registries are fragmented across institutions, countries and research domains. • So many search results • Finding a relevant dataset is not a trivial task for many researchers.
  5. 5. ...researchdata.ands.org.au/development-of-shy... {All started here!}
  6. 6. Working software solution • Not aiming to develop new standards or create new protocols, • instead aiming to leverage existing e- infrastructure to build a set of working software solutions.

  10. 10. RDA WG Assumptions •Activity funded through pre- existing sources •Willingness to share and to contribute to a global task •Willingness to extend existing projects to test conclusions
  11. 11. This Working Group •Existing discovery interoperability projects •Share learning and contribute to a more general framework for discovery interoperability •Extend existing projects to test and implement that framework
  12. 12. Outputs •Bi-lateral project reports •Shared Framework document •Installed code base; enabling infrastructure
  13. 13. General Framework – first steps
  14. 14. General Framework – first steps 1. Making it easier to federate and aggregate information from data description registries 2. Making it easier to provide meaningful consolidated discovery
  15. 15. 1.Easier Aggregation and Federation •Reduce friction and unnecessary effort •Existing mature protocols OAI-PMH, OGC CSW, DDI SDMX, OpenSearch, SRU, WPT... •Identify, list and describe commonly used protocols and their parameters •Facilitate the market place through registers of compliant registries
