  • Availability Accept datasets for storage at
    library and/or open up library
    catalogue to research data sets to
    allow access to data at least as
    remote content.
    Findability Support of persistent identifiers.
    Engage in developing common metadescription schemas and common
    citation practices.
    Promote use of common standards and tools among researchers
    Interpretability Provide metadescriptions to
    datasets.
    Support crosslinks between
    publications and datasets
    Re-usability
    Be transparent about conditions
    under which the data sets can be
    re-used (expert knowledge needed,
    software needed).
    Citability
    Engage in establishing uniform data citation standards.
    Support and promote persistent identifiers
    Curation/Preserv
    ation
    Transparency about curation of
    submitted data.
    Collaboration with data creators
    and data centres.
    Promote good data management
    practice.
  • Where the Commission sees libraries:
    Infrastructure for Open Access
    Storing, managing and preserving research data
    Authorisation and Authentication Infrastructure
    Skills and new proffessions for research data
    Global data e-infrastructures

BIS COMMITTEE (HOUSE OF COMMONS) RECCOMENDATIONS TYPE OF OPEN ACCESS PREFERENCE • • • • UK GREEN OA and Institutional repositories’ infrastructure are CRUCIAL for OA investment Reinstate IMMEDIATE DEPOSIT in its policy in IR Improve COMPLIANCE MONITORING Come back to 6-12 months EMBARGO ECONOMIC IMPACT • • Is it wise to ask universities to contribute to block grant in current economic crisis? Is Gold OA having an impact in current UK subscription purchasing? HYBRID JOURNALS • • RCUK to cover APCs only in pure GOLD OA (avoid double dipping) Even if not double dipping: is UK’s subsidizing purchasing subscriptions worldwide? APC • • Asses APC costs (different in hybrid and pure OA?; is the policy inflating APCs? Come back to use grant funds to publish (authors are more sensitive to APC costs) • Author’s to choose licence under which they publish LICENSE International trend: Green OA

    26. 26. RESEARCH DATA. HOW DO WE GET STARTED (I)? Ten reccomendations for libraries to get started with Research Data Mangement: 1.Offer research data management support, including data management plans for grant applications, intellectual property rights ad-vice and information materials. Assist faculty with data management plans and the integration of data management into the curiculum. 2. Engage in the development of metadata and data standards and provide metadata services for research data 3. Create Data Librarian posts and develop professional staff skills for data librarianship. 4. Actively participate in institutional research data policy development, including resource plans. Encourage and adopt open data policies where appropriate in the re-search data life cycle 5. Liaise and partner with researchers, research groups, data archives and data centers to foster an interoperable infrastructure for data access, discovery and data sharing.
    27. 27. RESEARCH DATA. HOW DO WE GET STARTED (II)? Ten reccomendations for libraries to get started with Research Data Mangement: 6.Support the lifecycle for research data by providing services for storage, discovery and permanent access. 7. Promote research data citation by applying persistent identifiers to research data. 8. Provide an institutional Data Catalogue or Data Repository, depending on available infrastructure. 9.Get involved in subject specific data management practice. 10.Offer or mediate secure storage for dynamic and static research data in cooperation with institutional IT units and/or seek exploitation of appropriate cloud services
