Measuring success of strategies to promote deposit Measuring success for particular deposit strategies: much harder than getting a general picture Specific questions should be asked to repository managers, such as: - was any given automated deposit strategy used for content ingest purposes? - could an approximate amount of items thus ingested be estimated as a percentage of total item input? http://www.rsp.ac.uk/grow/measuring-success/
SONEX are…As of Nov09 the workgroup coordinator Pablode Castro changed affiliation from SpanishNational Research Council (CSIC) to CarlosIII University Madrid, and Richard Jones(Symplectic Ltd) became a member of thegroup in Apr10 replacing Jim Downing.
How it all started:Institutional Repositories Workshop (IRW’09)
SONEX usecase scenario IV:Deposit via personal software
(Potential) SONEX usecase scenario V:are IRs a proper target for research data & datasets?
Widening deposit use-case analysis: beyond research papers First Task is ‘Re-thinking the Use-Case Actors’ to establish Use Case Scenarios and to pose question of relevance of Institutional Repository (see DISC-UK DataShare Project): Research Data (then learning materials) [a first cut]1. (Individual/Group) Originator/Researcher 1. Via the PI (Award Holder) 2. Where there is no PI2. Depositor (not originator) – mediated deposit 1. Where agent reports to PI 2. Where agent does not3. Institutional/Departmental4. Libraries (or other long-lasting organisations)5. Repository/Archive/Database Manager6. Publisher7. etc
Some questions on research data management Are IRs a proper target for research data deposit? Could Sword deal with data transfer? Available workforce for dealing with data management: is it big enough? Trained enough? Research data file sizes: should deposit by reference be considered instead/besides binary data transfer? At what point along the publication lifecycle should dataset deposit take place?
