Integrating repositories and eLab notebooks through an open science framework

  1. 1. Integrating repositories and eLab notebooks through an open science service REPOSITORY FRINGE 2018 Helen Blanchett, Jisc Richard Adams, Research Space Nigel Goddard, the University of Edinburgh 2 July, 2018
  2. 2. Why a Research Data Shared Service ❖ There is no single “solution” easily available that meets requirements for universities to enable better management of research data ➢ Managed research data shared service ➢ Repository, preservation, reporting and interoperability components ➢ Help institutions meet funder policy compliance ➢ Enables reuse of research data for better research ➢ Enables good practices in research data management ➢ Allows for financial and resource efficiencies ➢ Allows researchers to easily publish, archive and preserve their research outputs
  3. 3. Overview of Jisc Research Data Shared Service Preservation Systems Multi-tenant administration Discovery User Interfaces and Portals APIs User InterfacesUser InterfacesUser InterfacesTenant User Interfaces APIs Jisc Reporting APIs APIs APIs Tenant Storage APIs Jisc Repository Core Infrastructure APIs Metadata Store Publish Subscribe Messaging Service Cloud Data Storage (Access and Archival) Tenant Repository, CRIS and research systems Scholarly Communications, Service APIs
  4. 4. Next Generation Research Environment ❖ Recommendations and actions - ❖Promote the adoption of concepts, standards and identifiers that are beneficial to Jisc members. ❖Ensure Jisc services are developed in such a way that they can be integrated or accessed via APIs and standard interfaces as much as possible. ❖Investigate work required in the RDSS for closer integration between active and archival research data, and for integrating research data and research administrative data
  5. 5. The emergence of ELNs as a key active data research tool ❖ELNs ➢ For life sciences and related areas ➢ For active research phase: organisation of data ➢ But often just another data silo! ❖ Connected ELNs ➢ For data from other sources, e.g., microscope ➢ During active research: import and link ➢ Streamlined export to repositories
  6. 6. Benefits of integrated ELN  repository workflow ❖Limits need to reorganize data for deposit ➢ Saves time and effort for researchers ➢ Increases interest in depositing data ➢ Increases amount of data entering repositories ❖ELNs as a tool for data curation ➢ Platform for data curators and researchers to work together on data curation ➢ Data already organised, freeing data curators to work on higher level curation ❖Additional benefits with Connected ELN ➢ Include data from other tools and resources in deposits ➢ Direct deposit from within ELN to repository
  7. 7. RSpace: the first Connected ELN
  8. 8. Current repository Current repository focus and limitations Manipulate Access ? Query Other repository Interoperate Data Deposit Barriers to use • Hard work to prepare deposit • No support for tools already in use e.g., ELN
  9. 9. Developments Needed ❖Conceptual ➢ Recognition of the benefits of ➢Connected ELNs as data organising tools ➢Enhanced ELN  repository workflow ❖ Practical ➢ Development of Repository APIs ➢ for highly organised, heterogeneous data ➢ ingestion, query, export

  11. 11. Research Tools in an Open Science Service ❖ Framework ➢ Procurement framework for ELNs (including assessing current tools and level of demand) ❖ Exploratory ➢ Explore interoperability between ELNs, repositories and Current Research Information Systems (CRIS) using open standards ❖Integration ➢ Technical integration of ELNs within the RDSS
