  3. 3. Components of RDM services www.dcc.ac.uk/resources/how-guides/how-develop-rdm-services
  4. 4. UK Open Data Concordat • Multi-stakeholder group: RCUK, HEFCE, Universities UK, Wellcome Trust • Developed in response to criticism about varying policy requirements • Provides a set of principles and roles for all www.rcuk.ac.uk/documents/documents/ concordatonopenresearchdata-pdf
  5. 5. DMPTuuli for DMPs https://www.dmptuuli.fi • Project supported by the Ministry of Education • Single national service that all unis can customise • Developed national DMP template • Liaison / piloting with Academy of Finland and other research funders
  6. 6. Secure data services TSD provides a platform for researchers working at University of Oslo and in other public research institutions to collect, store and analyze sensitive research data. TSD complies with the directive of privacy and electronic communication in Norway. www.uio.no/english/services/it/research/ storage/sensitive-data/index.html
  7. 7. Dutch DataVerse network • A network of data repositories • Based on open source repository solution • Supported by participating institutions and DANS • Provides storage, sharing and registration of data, during the research period and up to prescribed term of ten years after its completion. https://dataverse.nl
  8. 8. National / domain repositories CESSDA social science data centres BioSharing portal of databases in life sciences www.cessda.eu https://biosharing.org
  9. 9. Research Data Australia https://researchdata.ands.org.au • National portal to Australian research data • Harvests metadata from 100+ research orgs, government agencies, and cultural institutions • Funded projects within institutions to ‘seed the commons’
  10. 10. MANTRA online training http://mantra.edina.ac.uk • Online toolkit, created with international reuse in mind • CC-BY licensed to permit widest reuse • Lots of uptake: embed in VLE, inspire new variants, led to MOOC…
  11. 11. Guidance resources
  12. 12. What do we learn from these examples? Image CC-BY-NC-ND by talkingplant www.flickr.com/photos/talkingplant/2256485110Image CC-0 by Alan Levine https://www.flickr.com/photos/cogdog/15903347764
  13. 13. Lots of potential to get started • Many services can be offered at a national level • It helps to build on good practice emerging from universities or other countries • Understand community needs and priorities • Tackle one aspect at a time
  14. 14. Research Data Shared Service vision www.jisc.ac.uk/rd/projects/research-data-shared-service • Provide an end-to-end system, offered as a managed service • Procure services on behalf of the sector
  15. 15. Will always be a hybrid environment Local  National   Global NIH Commons EOSC African Open Science Platform National Data Services Diverse mix of stakeholders acting at different levels Universities Discipline-specific, community-based services Third-party service providers Registration agencies
  16. 16. Coordinate across the levels Dutch front-office back-office concept from DANS
  17. 17. Critical to provide fora to exchange ideas DCC’s Research Data Management Forum (RDMF) • Informal network with bi-annual events since 2008 • Topics based on current issues raised by members • Overnight stays to promote networking opportunities • Model replicated in Portugal www.dcc.ac.uk/events/research- data-management-forum-rdmf
  18. 18. Dutch National RDM Coordination Point • Formal coordination to facilitate national strategy • Five issues / working groups • Members from unis, UMCs, unis of applied sciences, data centres, national services and other institutes • Coordinated by SURF with other agencies www.surf.nl/en/lcrdm Potential role for national RDA group?
  19. 19. Lots of ways to get started Image ‘Go !!’ CC-BY-NC-ND by Cédric Fettouche www.flickr.com/photos/cedmars/5405223203
  20. 20. National projects • DLCM (Swiss Data Lifecycle Management) funded by swissuniversities to combine existing efforts on RDM • Five project tracks: 1. Guidelines, polices and Data Management Plan 2. Publication and preservation 3. Active data management 4. Consultation and training 5. Outreach and dissemination • Similar projects elsewhere to coordinate RDM e.g. e- Infrastructures Austria and Tuuli project in Finland www.dlcm.ch
  21. 21. Establish centres of expertise Australian National Data Centre (ANDS) “to make Australia’s research data assets more valuable for researchers, research institutions and the nation” www.ands.org.au
  22. 22. Funding programmes e.g. MRD The Jisc Managing Research Data programmes were instrumental in seeding RDM activity in a wide range of unis and building community MRD 01: October 2009 – July 2011 • £4.3 million investment • Strands: infrastructure projects, DMPs, citation, training, tools (costs & reqs) • www.jisc.ac.uk/whatwedo/programmes/mrd.aspx MRD 02 – October 2011 – July 2013 • £4.6 million investment • Strands: infrastructure projects, DMPs, training, data publication • www.jisc.ac.uk/whatwedo/programmes/di_researchmanagement/managin gresearchdata.aspx Lots of workshops and coordination by DCC & Jisc throughout
  23. 23. Membership organisations Canadian Portage network • Launched in 2015 by the Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) • Supported by Library memberships for 2 years (business plan) • Aim is to coordinate and expand existing expertise, services, and infrastructure for RDM • Collaborate with other relevant national groups e.g. Compute Canada, RDC, Canadian Association of Research Admins (CARA) & Ethics Boards (CAREB) https://portagenetwork.ca
  24. 24. Questions • Do you have all the stakeholders at the table? • What resources do you have to commit? • Where are things at now? • Which are the most pressing priorities? • What does it make most sense to centralise? • What should be provided, by whom, at what level?
