Research data as the main product of research can be unique and is often the result of a complex and cost-intensive research process. Reuse and reinterpretation of such material is envisioned, not only to maintain research integrity, but also to accelerate the advancement of science by sharing results in an early stage.
Generally speaking, there is little general experience with preservation, provision and publishing of research data. Thus so far little research has been done when it comes to researching data publishing models. In history, this has partly been due to the limited existing infrastructures, but with current information technologies, modern and tailored research data provision and publishing are facilitated.
Why tailored? Characteristics of research data vary across and within disciplines. This results in more complex prerequisites/specification when compared to the process of paper publication which is very similar across disciplines. Thus, tailored models are necessary to match the individual characteristics of research data across disciplines. Within this presentation three different approaches are distinguished: object centric, text centric and data centric. Prerequisites and limitations regarding timing and room of the data provision will be discussed and experiences with each of the different models presented.
Regardless of these models, it becomes apparent that due to the individual characteristics of research data, its provision and publication is only possible with the support and knowhow of the research community. This know-how needs to be linked to the competences of infrastructure facilities.

  • Here add the files from gentner day
  • Plus the advancements that Martin presented already
  • Basis fuer die textorientierte und die datenorientierte Publikationsform, dadurch auch zeitliche unabhaengigkeit
  • Publishers belong to infrastructure providers.
  • Sünje Dallmeier-Tiessen: Research data "publishing": models, roles and responsibilities

    1. 1. Research data “publishing” –models, roles and responsibilities Sünje Dallmeier-Tiessen CERN | Scientific Information Service Humboldt Universität, Berlin
    2. 2. OutlineResearch data “publishing”• Introduction: Research data• Models – Text-centered occurrence – Data-centered occurrence – Object-centric principle• Roles – Motivation, Competences, Responsibilities• ConclusionsOpen Access – Open Data 2010 Sunje Dallmeier-Tiessen | CERN
    3. 3. Research data publishing 1884 2010Open Access – Open Data 2010 Sunje Dallmeier-Tiessen | CERN
    4. 4. What is research data?Research data How does it look like? How can this be integrated into modern scholarly communication?Foto: AWI Bremerhaven, Gutt
    5. 5. Research data “publishing” beyond disciplines? Discipline specific characteristics of research data, BUT challenges are similar: – Non existing data publishing culture • Missing infrastructure • Non established workflows • Missing awareness/motivation/submission “we need to get this paper out” vs. “we need to publish this dataset” – Diverse research datasets • Complexity: From simple files to complex datasets • Size: From small to “huge” • Documentation: varying requirementsOpen Access – Open Data 2010 Sunje Dallmeier-Tiessen | CERN
    6. 6. ModelsHow does the world of researchdata publishing look like today?stand-alone, text centered, data centered
    7. 7. Occurence: text centered publication model Research Data• Long tradition• Linked research data in external data Metadata Tables respositories, e.g. DataCite Text, Results,• Attached supplemental Interpretation material: tables, graphs, audio/video/data files (on same plattform as text Graphs, Documen- publication) Figures tation Open Access – Open Data 2010 Sunje Dallmeier-Tiessen | CERN
    8. 8. Supplement Source: Nature 2006Open Access – Open Data 2010 Sunje Dallmeier-Tiessen | CERN
    9. 9. Occurrence: data centered publication model Interpretation, Article Services I Interpretation, Article II Research Tables Data Metadata Graphs, Figures Documen- tationOpen Access – Open Data 2010 Sunje Dallmeier-Tiessen | CERN
    10. 10. Data JournalData centered publication• including data documentation• data access• quality assurance – peer review• open accessIncentive: publication forenhanced data provisionOpen Access – Open Data 2010 Sunje Dallmeier-Tiessen | CERN
    11. 11. Direct data accessOpen Access – Open Data 2010 Sunje Dallmeier-Tiessen | CERN
    12. 12. With modern information technology, many opportunities… to service the different needs in the research communities:• When do I want to publish my data? • After production? • Before or after the “text” publication?• And with whom would I like to share? • With my colleagues? • With my community? • With the entire world? • … or maybe this might change over time?Different models and responsibilities for involved partiesOpen Access – Open Data 2010 Sunje Dallmeier-Tiessen | CERN

Looking into the future: Principle – object centered (“mash up”)Materials and services as individually addressed objects• Persistence of objects/services,• Persistent identifier Results and Interpretation Table Figure Research Data Documentation Services Open Access – Open Data 2010 Sunje Dallmeier-Tiessen | CERN

    15. 15. Prerequisites for Research Data Publishing Cooperation of researchers and service providers Access Research data Quality Infrastructure/ (Documentation, Workflows Metadata…) Persistence, Trust- worthiness Community/Researchers: Infrastructure provider Workflows Provision, Offer infrastructure Documentation, Standards Quality control Trustworthiness ResponsibilitiesOpen Access – Open Data 2010 Sunje Dallmeier-Tiessen | CERN
    16. 16. Role of researchers… as data providers[data production] Foto by G. F. Wicke, flickr• Data documentation• Data submission (preparation of publishable dataset)• Data quality assurance/peer review… as data users• Citation of dataset, acknowledgement Source: Nature 2006Open Access – Open Data 2010 Sunje Dallmeier-Tiessen | CERN
    17. 17. Role of information scientistsService• Management of the research material remix – Facilitating new workflows – Integration of new features: e.g. data citation – Preservation, catalogue• Interface between IT and researcher – Make publishing platforms usable • Submission • Search functionality foto: flickr Open Access – Open Data 2010 Sunje Dallmeier-Tiessen | CERN
    18. 18. Conclusions• Missing data publishing culture in many communities• New publishing models allow tailored services, developed with the community• Significant role of community in research data preservation and publishing – Implications for content recruitmentOpen Access – Open Data 2010 Sunje Dallmeier-Tiessen | CERN
