  5. 5. UCL LIBRARY SERVICES • Identifies how policy development and leadership are undertaken Policy and Leadership • Who undertakes advocacy and what is the message? Advocacy • Technical Issues around collection and curation Selection, Collection, Curation, Description, Citation, Legal Issues • Where is it stored and by whom? Research Data Infrastructure • How much does it cost? Costs • What skills are required by which communities? Roles, Responsibilities, Skills • Who does what? Recommendations to different stakeholder groups 5http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:DNA_orbit_animated.gif
  6. 6. UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Key Messages  Each LERU university needs a Research Data Management Strategy  Researchers should have Research Data Management Plans  LERU universities need to bring stakeholders together  Benefits of ‘open data’ for sharing and re-use should be advocated and explored A Box of Useful Knowledge (Brougham Papers, UCL Library Services)
  7. 7. UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Policy Development  Case Study on Policy development from UCL  Drivers  External funders  Need to inform researchers  Raise awareness of issues facing UCL researchers  Identifies roles and responsibilities  Data to be made open in the most open manner appropriate  Researchers should have Data Management Plans  LERU slams lack of data policies – Research Europe See www.lanecrothers.net/politicalprof/the-policy- cycle-and-our-frozen-politics/
  8. 8. UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Open Data  Open Data allows research data to be shared and re-used  Avoids costly duplication of research activity  Provides greater transparency in research activity  Potential to speed discovery of solutions to societal Grand Challenges, such as health care & environmental science  Can all research data be open?  Certain categories probably cannot  National security  Data protection  Commercial Funder requirements http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Open_Data_stickers.jpg
