Today’s talk

Why research data management matters
Context from the UK
The Jisc Managing Research Data programme
Research libraries > better RDM
Some useful training resources

2
Why is managing research data important?

 Jisc considers it a priority to support universities in improving RDM
 Drivers: research funder policies, legislative frameworks, open data
agenda …
 Good data management is good for research
– More efficient research processes, avoidance of data loss, scrutiny can
encourage better practice, research benefits of data reuse …

 Alignment with university missions
– Excellent research infrastructure
– Better oversight of research outputs

3
Research Data Challenges
 Challenges: the ‘data deluge’… huge quantities of digital data
– But it’s not just about addressing storage issues.

 Opportunities: data reuse, meta-studies, interdisciplinary grand
challenges.
– Increasing awareness of research data as an asset.
– Digital research data has reuse value - important to obtain full return on
public investment.

 Results in policy drivers from funders.
– Need improved knowledge of how best to realise these policies.

 Increasing emphasis on the role of universities and research
institutions to provide infrastructure and support for RDM.

Royal Society, UK
Science as an Open Enterprise Report, 2012
 ‘the conduct and communication of
science needs to adapt to this new era
of information technology’.
 ‘As a first step towards this
intelligent openness, data that
underpin a journal article should be
made concurrently available in an
accessible database. We are now on
the brink of an achievable aim: for all
science literature to be online, for all of
the data to be online and for the two to
be interoperable.’
 Royal Society June 2012, Science as
an Open Enterprise,
http://royalsociety.org/policy/projects/science-public-enterprise/report/
5
Science as an Open Enterprise Report:
six key changes
1. a shift away from a research culture where data is viewed as a private
preserve;
2. expanding the criteria used to evaluate research to give credit for useful data
communication and novel ways of collaborating;
3. the development of common standards for communicating data;
4. mandating intelligent openness for data relevant to published scientific
papers;
5. strengthening the cohort of data scientists needed to manage and support
the use of digital data (which will also be crucial to the success of private
sector data analysis and the government’s Open Data strategy);
6. the development and use of new software tools to automate and simplify the
creation and exploitation of datasets.

UK drivers: Research Funder Policies
RCUK Common Principles on Data Policy:
http://www.rcuk.ac.uk/research/Pages/DataPolicy.aspx
1. Public good: Publicly funded research data are produced in the public interest should
be made openly available with as few restrictions as possible
2. Planning for preservation: Institutional and project specific data management
policies and plans needed to ensure valued data remains usable
3. Discovery: Metadata should be available and discoverable; Published results should
indicate how to access supporting data
4. Confidentiality: Research organisation policies and practices to ensure legal, ethical
and commercial constraints assessed; research process should not be damaged by
inappropriate release
5. First use: Provision for a period of exclusive use, to enable research teams to publish
results
6. Recognition: Data users should acknowledge data sources and terms & conditions of
access
7. Public funding: Use of public funds for RDM infrastructure is appropriate and must
be efficient and cost-effective.

EPSRC Research Data Policy Expectations
 Policy and expectations:
http://www.epsrc.ac.uk/about/standards/researchdata/Pages/policyframework.aspx
 Research organisations to have RDM policy, advocacy and support functions. (i, iii)
 Research data to be effectively managed and curated throughout the life-cycle (viii)
 Research organisations to maintain public catalogue of research data holdings,
adequate metadata and permanent identifier (v)
 Publications to indicate how research data can be accessed (ii)
 Data to be retained for 10 years from last access (vii)
 Research data management to be adequately resourced from appropriate funding
streams (ix)
 Roadmap in place by 1 May 2012
 Compliance by 1 May 2015

Development of Institutional RDM Capacity

The Royal Society Science as an Open Enterprise report recommended that the
JISC Managing Research Data Programme ‘should be expanded beyond the
pilot 17 institutions within the next five years.’
[Royal Society 2012, Science as an Open Enterprise, p.73]

10
Building Institutional Capacity:
Second MRD Programme, 2011-13
Encouraged to
reuse outputs from
first programme and
elsewhere.
Mix of pilot projects
and embedding
projects.
Holistic institutional
approach to RDM.

How are libraries engaging in RDM?
The library is leading on most DCC institutional engagements
www.dcc.ac.uk/community/institutional-engagements
They are involved in:
 defining the institutional strategy
 developing RDM policy
 delivering training courses
 helping researchers to write DMPs
 advising on data sharing and citation
 setting up data repositories
 ...
24
Library skills needed for RDM
 Literature searching
 Literature evaluation (including appraisal and retention decision-making)
 Expert knowledge of subject resources and databases
 ‘Background knowledge’ (i.e. discipline-specific knowledge)
 Technical knowledge (bibliometrics etc)
 Knowledge of information literacy and digital literacy
 Understanding of the width of the information landscape and the research
lifecycle
 Negotiation skills
 Complaints and expectation management
 Coordination of practice across institution
 Advocacy, promotion [of good practice] etc
RIN RILADS project (2013)

25
Why should libraries support RDM?

 existing data and open access leadership roles
 often run publication repositories
 have good relationships with researchers
 proven liaison and negotiation skills
 knowledge of information management, metadata...
 highly relevant skill set

26
Potential library roles in RDM
 Leading on local (institutional) data policy
 Bringing data into undergraduate research-based learning
 Teaching data literacy to postgraduate students
 Developing researcher data awareness
 Providing advice, e.g. on writing DMPs or advice on RDM within a project
 Explaining the impact of sharing data, and how to cite data
 Signposting who in the Uni to consult in relation to a particular question
 Auditing to identify data sets for archiving or RDM needs
 Developing and managing access to data collections
 Documenting what datasets an institution has
 Developing local data curation capacity
 Promoting data reuse by making known what is available

RDMRose Lite
27
So existing skills = highly relevant

 Many existing librarian skills are highly relevant to RDM

 Corrall et all (2013): majority of librarians surveyed in favour of RDM
training as part of professional education, including CPD

28
JISCMRD Training Projects, phase 1 and 2

 Need for discipline-specific research data management / curation training, integrated
with PG studies
 Five projects in the first programme to design and pilot (reusable) disciplinefocussed training units for postgraduate courses:

Supporting Research Data Management in UK Universities: the Jisc Managing Research Data Programme and university libraries

  • 1. Supporting Research Data Management in UK Universities: the Jisc Managing Research Data Programme and university libraries Laura Molloy Humanities Advanced Technology and Information Institute (HATII), University of Glasgow, Digital Curation Centre and Jisc Managing Research Data programme Tuesday 29 October 2013 Utrecht 1
  • 2. Today’s talk Why research data management matters Context from the UK The Jisc Managing Research Data programme Research libraries > better RDM Some useful training resources 2
  • 3. Why is managing research data important?  Jisc considers it a priority to support universities in improving RDM  Drivers: research funder policies, legislative frameworks, open data agenda …  Good data management is good for research – More efficient research processes, avoidance of data loss, scrutiny can encourage better practice, research benefits of data reuse …  Alignment with university missions – Excellent research infrastructure – Better oversight of research outputs 3
  • 4. Research Data Challenges  Challenges: the ‘data deluge’… huge quantities of digital data – But it’s not just about addressing storage issues.  Opportunities: data reuse, meta-studies, interdisciplinary grand challenges. – Increasing awareness of research data as an asset. – Digital research data has reuse value - important to obtain full return on public investment.  Results in policy drivers from funders. – Need improved knowledge of how best to realise these policies.  Increasing emphasis on the role of universities and research institutions to provide infrastructure and support for RDM. 4
  • 5. Royal Society, UK Science as an Open Enterprise Report, 2012  ‘the conduct and communication of science needs to adapt to this new era of information technology’.  ‘As a first step towards this intelligent openness, data that underpin a journal article should be made concurrently available in an accessible database. We are now on the brink of an achievable aim: for all science literature to be online, for all of the data to be online and for the two to be interoperable.’  Royal Society June 2012, Science as an Open Enterprise, http://royalsociety.org/policy/projects/science-public-enterprise/report/ 5
  • 6. Science as an Open Enterprise Report: six key changes 1. a shift away from a research culture where data is viewed as a private preserve; 2. expanding the criteria used to evaluate research to give credit for useful data communication and novel ways of collaborating; 3. the development of common standards for communicating data; 4. mandating intelligent openness for data relevant to published scientific papers; 5. strengthening the cohort of data scientists needed to manage and support the use of digital data (which will also be crucial to the success of private sector data analysis and the government’s Open Data strategy); 6. the development and use of new software tools to automate and simplify the creation and exploitation of datasets. Royal Society 2012, Science as an Open Enterprise, http://royalsociety.org/policy/projects/science-public-enterprise/report/ 6
  • 7. UK drivers: Research Funder Policies RCUK Common Principles on Data Policy: http://www.rcuk.ac.uk/research/Pages/DataPolicy.aspx 1. Public good: Publicly funded research data are produced in the public interest should be made openly available with as few restrictions as possible 2. Planning for preservation: Institutional and project specific data management policies and plans needed to ensure valued data remains usable 3. Discovery: Metadata should be available and discoverable; Published results should indicate how to access supporting data 4. Confidentiality: Research organisation policies and practices to ensure legal, ethical and commercial constraints assessed; research process should not be damaged by inappropriate release 5. First use: Provision for a period of exclusive use, to enable research teams to publish results 6. Recognition: Data users should acknowledge data sources and terms & conditions of access 7. Public funding: Use of public funds for RDM infrastructure is appropriate and must be efficient and cost-effective. 7
  • 8. EPSRC Research Data Policy Expectations  Policy and expectations: http://www.epsrc.ac.uk/about/standards/researchdata/Pages/policyframework.aspx  Research organisations to have RDM policy, advocacy and support functions. (i, iii)  Research data to be effectively managed and curated throughout the life-cycle (viii)  Research organisations to maintain public catalogue of research data holdings, adequate metadata and permanent identifier (v)  Publications to indicate how research data can be accessed (ii)  Data to be retained for 10 years from last access (vii)  Research data management to be adequately resourced from appropriate funding streams (ix)  Roadmap in place by 1 May 2012  Compliance by 1 May 2015 8
  • 9. Institutional data repositories as an elevator for data collections The Data Pyramid: taken from Royal Society Report, Science as an Open Enterprise: http://royalsociety.org/policy/projects/science-public-enterprise/report/ Jisc MRD Blog on role of institutional data repositories http://researchdata.jiscinvolve.org/wp/2012/08/06/institutional-data-repositories-and-the-curation-hierarchy-reflections-on-the-dcc-icp 9
  • 10. Development of Institutional RDM Capacity The Royal Society Science as an Open Enterprise report recommended that the JISC Managing Research Data Programme ‘should be expanded beyond the pilot 17 institutions within the next five years.’ [Royal Society 2012, Science as an Open Enterprise, p.73] 10
  • 11. Building Institutional Capacity: Second MRD Programme, 2011-13 Encouraged to reuse outputs from first programme and elsewhere. Mix of pilot projects and embedding projects. Holistic institutional approach to RDM. Second JISC MRD Programme, 2011-13: http://bit.ly/jiscmrd2011-13 11
