RDAP14: Developing a cross-institutional data management plan for a major particle physics project

  1. 1. Building a cross-institutional data management plan or: what could possibly go wrong? Steve Van Tuyl Data Services Librarian Carnegie Mellon University - University Libraries svantuyl@andrew.cmu.edu www.cmu.edu/research/data-management
  2. 2. GlueX Experiment: 30+ Institutions 1 National Lab 1 Spokesperson (not in charge) 15 Petabytes/year 0 Data Management Plans
  3. 3. AND THEN WE TOLD THEM TO CREATE A CONSISTENT DATA MANAGEMENT PLAN THAT APPLIES TO ALL COLLABORATORS
  4. 4. “What?! You’re sharing research data outside of the institution!?” -  The Lawyers
  5. 5. What could possibly go wrong? In theory, the major collaborating institutions are on the hook for: •  Responsibility management •  Infrastructure management •  Intellectual property •  Data ownership •  Export controls •  Etc. We have a hard enough time doing this WITHIN our institution…
  6. 6. “You could argue that the field has suffered from [a lack of data sharing]. We all could have gone back and looked at the Mark II data and found cool stuff there if that wasn’t so frickin’ impossible” - Jefferson Lab Staff Scientist
  7. 7. “We’re really interested to see what you come up with because we don’t know anyone who has tried to do this before” - Research compliance officer at CMU
