  1. 1. Data management and governance - the experience Frank Scholze | Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) European Library Advisory Board | Munich 16.5.2013
  2. 2. Outline • Background • Research Data Repositories •
  3. 3. Background • Research data are valuable and ubiquitous • New technologies facilitate data-intensive science • Broad discussion about the permanent access to research data • Increasing requirements from funders to make data openly available • Growing demand for trustable and sustainable research data repositories Trend: data journals
  4. 4. OSTP Directive „digitally formatted scientific data resulting from unclassified research supported wholly or in part by Federal funding should be stored and publicly accessible to search, retrieve, and analyze.“ Office of Science and Technology Policy. (2013). Increasing Access to the Results of Federally Funded Scientific Research. Retrieved from
  5. 5. The Royal Society „ Where data justify it, scientists should make them available in an appropriate data repository.“ - Intelligent Openness (accessible, assessable, intelligible, useable) The Royal Society. (2012). Science as an open enterprise. The Royal Society Science Policy Centre report 02/12. Retrieved from Royal_Society_Content/policy/projects/sape/2012-06-20-SAOE.pdf.
  6. 6. Research Data Repositories • EC: ICT infrastructures for e-science „The landscape of data repositories across Europe is fairly heterogeneous, but there is a solid basis (…) to overcome the fragmentation and enable research communities to better manage, use, share and preserve data.“ Communication from the Commission to the European Parliament, the Council, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions. COM(2009) 108 final. Retrieved from
  7. 7. The Landscape of Research Data Repositories funders researchers journals research data repositories universities and research labs Where can I store my data? Investigators are expected to share their data! Underlying data must be accessible! Where can I find data? Should we offer repositories for all disciplines?
  8. 8. Open Data LMU, PURR, Institutional RDR
  9. 9. Disciplinary RDR PANGAEA, GEO,
  10. 10. Figshare, Multidisciplinary RDR
  11. 11. BDPP, SDDB, Project Specific RDR
  12. 12. Objectives • global registry of research data repositories • better understanding of the concept of research data repositories • help researchers, funding bodies, publishers and scholarly institutions to find research data repositories • promote a culture of sharing, increased access and better visibility of research data
  13. 13. Status quo • First project phase (2012/13) • The registry went live in autumn 2012  web-based registry  definition of selection criteria  formulation of a metadata scheme (vocabulary)
  14. 14. Aspects David Marques (2013) ticles/best-practices/2013- 02/research-data-driving-new- services
  15. 15. Vocabulary • Vierkant, P., Spier, S., Rücknagel, J., Gundlach, J., Fichtmüller, D., Kindling, M., Pampel, H., et al. (2012). Vocabulary for the Registration and Description of Research Data Repositories. Version 2.0. doi:10.2312/re3.002
  16. 16. Vocabulary in practice • Review • 37 criteria • 25 controlled vocabularies • Icons as representation of sets of criteria • Value added service for researchers and repository managers
