Resources for librarians supporting Research Data Management

  1. 1. • Notes on using this resource Notes • Requirements analysis • How to set up a Research Data Management Service • Benchmarking and connecting with other institutions and keeping up-to-date • Day to day management of the service • Systems and Tools Leading and Delivering the new Service • Resources to help with Data Management Planning and Funding Applications • Resources to help researchers doing their Research Data Management • Sensitive data Researchers • Training for librarians • Data and curation and preservation resources and training • Resources for teaching data literacy Librarians • Advice for IT managers • Systems and tools IT Support • Resources to help with Data Management Planning and Funding Applications Research Office Staff Resources Available to Support You with RDM WHELF Research Group
  2. 2. • The list of resources below was compiled by Dr Beth Hall, Academic Support Librarian at Bangor University (with help from Bronwen Blatchford, Cardiff Met) and is not representative of the large number and variety of resources available to support RDM; this is a selection based on personal awareness and my judgement on relevancy; it does not include in-depth guides on advanced topics, and may be missing key resources • This is intended to be a living document – where we can add more resources if found to be useful. However, the latest date that this document was edited is at the top of this, page so this will give you an indication as to whether the URL links will still be working or whether these resources may have moved, have been superseded, or no longer exist • The notes entitled “Comments on use” was written by Beth Hall and is my personal opinion, does not represent the views of WHELF, and will not accurately represent the usefulness of the documents listed (as it all depends on context and the questions you are asking) Notes on using this resource 07/03/2016
  3. 3. Requirements Analysis Resource Comments on use DCC: Discover requirements for RDM services Useful read to understand and identify what needs to change at your institution, the infrastructure that needs to be set up, and the stakeholders that are involved. DCC: AUDIT tool Useful to find out what data practices are currently happening at your University. Very useful implementation guide with examples of use. The evidence you gather from running this exercise is very useful to back up reports to University management boards.
  4. 4. How to set up a RDM Service Resource Comments on use DCC: How to Develop RDM Services - a guide for HEIs If you only read one guide – this is the one I would recommend. Covers broadly all RDM support and gives practical step-by-step advice DCC: Making the Case for Research Data Management Useful when making the case to senior managers, I quoted phrases of this in our report to the University executive BOOK: Delivering research data management services : fundamentals of good practice - Pryor, Graham All round good advice and good for background Understand costs involved Useful source of costing models LIBER making the case for RDM: links here and here Nice infographic, could help in communication to senior management teams
  5. 5. Benchmarking or connecting with other institutions and keeping-up-to-date Resource Comments on use DCC Case studies and DCC Where are they now? Blog Posts These are useful case studies, however bear in mind that these institutions have received JISC funding or have been part of institutional engagement programmes with the DCC and so have had support to get to where they are now RESEARCH-DATAMAN@JISCMAIL.AC.UK Useful mailing list, has a strong UK membership and many of the discussions are on UK funders requirements. Also has a global membership JISC DataSpring project: DCC: Extending the Organisational Profile Document (OPD) to cover RDM and guide available here Over 40 HEIs already have OPDs in place Follow news from the Research Data Alliance on Twitter There are many other useful Twitter accounts you can follow, and hashtags e.g. #jiscRDM
  6. 6. Day to day management of the Service Resource Comments on use In development: JISC DataSpring project: DMAOnline – RDM Administration Analytics, Lancaster University http://www.dmao.info/ Aiming to provide a single dashboard view of how various departments contribute to RDM activities and how an institution is performing in terms of its compliance with policies.
  7. 7. Systems and Tools Resource Comments on use JISC Shared Service Pilot Interesting to see how this develops, Cardiff University is one of the pilot institutions DATACITE metadata and DOIs There is a cost to subscribing, but also there is also a minimum standard of metadata required by the British Library DCC guide: Where to keep research data: DCC checklist for evaluating data repositories A very useful guide to help researchers make informed choices. We offer an institutional data repository, but need to ensure this is a home for data that has no other suitable home, so we need to understand what other repositories we can recommend and in which cases they are suitable. DCC: Tools and Services Catalogue In development: JISC DataSpring project: Develop a DataVault - University of Edinburgh and University of Manchester JISC guide to cloud computing https://www.jisc.ac.uk/guides/cloud-computing-in-detail This is something many of our research projects are asking about Details of other available data repositories: Registry of research data repositories
  8. 8. Advice for IT managers Resource Comments on use DCC: 5 Steps to Research Data Readiness: for IT managers Important to recognise the other stakeholders in the new RDM service
  9. 9. Resources to help with Data Management Planning and Funding Applications Resource Comments on use DCC: Checklist for a data management plan Very useful guide to share with researchers. I like the colour folded flyer version. DMPOnline Very useful especially because the output can be uploaded into the RCUK funding applications platform as it comes out of the tool. The tool can be tailored by adding institutional advice, no one has translated into Welsh yet. Some researchers at Bangor felt it was too much and preferred a shorted checklist. DCC: How to develop a data management and sharing plan Useful, have used this in training sessions DCC: Track the impact of research data with metrics Useful for researchers to be able to talk about how investment in research data management will lead to more impactful research RCUK advice on the individual research council websites: each council explains their data sharing policy and what they expect in their data management plans Example DMPs from other Universities  Bristol 1 and Bristol 2 and Bristol 3  Sheffield 1 and Sheffield 2  Exeter 1 and Exeter 2 It would be useful if more Universities shared DMPs online, it is difficult to get agreement from researchers to put anything from their grant application online, but perhaps could keep some examples on file at your own institution DCC Summaries of UK Funder Policies 1 and 2 Useful summaries Oxford University webpages Useful summary and webpages are CCBY SHERPA JULIET also includes funder’s data sharing policies I don’t think everyone realises that this information is in SHERPA JULIET
  10. 10. Resources to help researchers doing their Research Data Management Resource Comments on use DCC checklists and how to guides:  Five steps to decide what data to keep  Appraise and select research data  Cite datasets and link to publications  Five things you need to know about RDM and the Law  How to license research data  How to write a lay summary  Where to keep research data These DCC guides are very useful because they provide practical steps that researchers can take, put the key information into a handy summary and provide links to more information, we take them into training sessions and use them in one-to-one consultations MANTRA training Specific courses for research student, career researcher, senior academic. Useful if you can recommend to researchers to sit down and do the course online, you can also use it in delivered training sessions, and the content can be reused. DCC: DC 101 materials http://www.dcc.ac.uk/training/train-the- trainer/dc-101-training-materials UEL TraD http://www.uel.ac.uk/trad/outputs/resources/ Useful information to use in training sessions, material is available in xerte format FOSTER training resources https://www.fosteropenscience.eu/foster- taxonomy/open-data and https://www.fosteropenscience.eu/foster- taxonomy/research-data-management Especially useful for European funded projects Many of the individual subject-specific or funder-specific data repositories (as listed at http://www.re3data.org/) have advice and guidance for researchers wanting to deposit data with them, but many also have guidance on data management planning, and research data management practices that are relevant outside of the specific research area. For example Oceanography: BODC presented at Bangor in 2015 http://www.bodc.ac.uk/about/presentations_and_papers/ Archaeology: http://archaeologydataservice.ac.uk/learning UK Data Archive: http://www.data-archive.ac.uk/create-manage JISC guide: How and why you should manage your research data: a guide for researchers Useful introduction and pointers to JISC work in this area
  11. 11. Sensitive data Resource Comments on use UK Data Archive advise on sensitive data http://www.data- archive.ac.uk/create-manage/consent-ethics Applicable beyond anyone actually wanting to deposit with the UK Data Archives
  12. 12. Training for librarians Resource Comments on use RDMRose http://rdmrose.group.shef.ac.uk/ The materials have recently been revised (2015) so are up-to- date DCC course: RDM for librarians http://www.dcc.ac.uk/training/rdm-librarians Materials free to download Training – MANTRA http://datalib.edina.ac.uk/mantra/libtraining.html DIY training kit for librarians very useful
  13. 13. Data and curation and preservation resources and training Resource Comments on use DCC Briefing paper on curation http://www.dcc.ac.uk/resources/briefing-papers/introduction- curation Thorough guidance, content from 2006-2009 but very useful COMING SOON – NEW DCC GUIDE - How to guide on workflows for data preservation and publishing In development: JISC DataSpring project - Filling the Digital Preservation Gap - University of York and University of Hull Phase 2 of project report available at https://figshare.com/articles/Filling_the_Digital_Preservation_G ap_A_Jisc_Research_Data_Spring_project_Phase_Two_report _February_2016/2073220/1 DCC curation resources: http://www.dcc.ac.uk/digital-curation Brief overview Digital Preservation Coalition: Digital Preservation Handbook http://www.dpconline.org/advice/preservationhandbook Thorough, in-depth, covers all digital materials, but you could dip in to specific things e.g. file formats
  14. 14. Resources for teaching data literacy Resource Comments on use DCC: How to track the impact of research data with metrics Useful to see how data is cited School of Data resources A network of data literacy practitioners, both organizations and individuals, implementing training and other data literacy activities in their respective countries and regions UUK Report: Making the most of data: Data skills training in English universities Useful to understand drivers for increased need for data skills NESTA and UUK report: Analytic Britain Useful to understand the skills needed for employment In development: JISC DataSpring project - Giving Researchers Credit for their Data - University of Oxford, F1000 Research, Wiley Consult the academic literature e.g. a bibliography in March 2016 would include papers such as: • Incorporating Data Literacy into Information Literacy Programs: Core Competencies and Contents • Data literacy for researchers and data librarians • Determining Data Information Literacy Needs: A Study of Students and Research Faculty • Data Sharing and Discovery: What Librarians Need to Know • Book: Information and Data Literacy, 2016, edited by J.Hagen-McIntosh There is a recent increase in literature on this topic, so there will be more recent references to read
