  4. 4. Open Access• Scholarly Works Repository• OA Policy• The Denton Declaration
  5. 5. Institutional Repository 2,192 items 34,199 files 68,628 uses
  6. 6. UNT’s OA Policy17.5 Open Access, Self-Archiving, and Long- term Digital Stewardship for University of North Texas Scholarly Works
  7. 7. The DataRes Project, funded by a Laura Bush21st Century Librarians grant from the IMLS,investigates how the library and informationscience (LIS) profession can best respond toemerging needs of research data managementin universities.DataRes is a collaboration between theUniversity of North Texas Libraries, the UNTCollege of Information, and the Council onLibrary and Information Resources.
  8. 8. Project AimsGovernmental funding agency requirement NSF NIH NEH IMLSGoals:• Research consistent policies or programmatic implementation from research institutions • Emerging patterns in data management (DM) policies• Research libraries and LIS responses • Curriculum and training development• Expectations of major stakeholders in the research cycle
  9. 9. Digging Deeper:Text Analysis of Agency Guidance
  10. 10. Preliminary Findings:Institutional Policy Scan
  11. 11. Text Analysis: Institutional Policy Scan38 institutional policies Example language:“The University recognizes the importance of datasharing in the advancement of knowledge andeducation.” (University of New Hampshire “UNH.VII.C.9”)An index of known policies, with links to the project data set willbe available in February 2013 athttp://datamanagement.unt.edu/policies
  12. 12. Survey FindingsWhere does your institution offer Data Management Plan Support? Library 48% Office of Research 24% IT Department Individual 17% Departments LIS School 8% 3%
  13. 13. Key TakeawaysInstitution-level policies occur down the line, if at all.Research Data Management is not a single department issue, nor is it the purview of a single discipline.Collaboration, domain knowledge, and infrastructure are all key to the success of any DM response.Prescriptive guidance will be necessary to encourage disciplines to take DM Plan requirements seriously in evaluating funding applications.
  14. 14. The Denton DeclarationMay 22, 2012 at the University of North Texas• Open access to research data is critical for advancing science, scholarship, and society.• Research data, when repurposed, has an accretive value.• Publicly funded research should be publicly available for public good.• Transparency in research is essential to sustain the public trust.• The validation of research data by the peer community is an essential function of the responsible conduct of research.• Managing research data is the responsibility of a broad community of stakeholders including researchers, funders, institutions, libraries, archivists, and the public.
