Research data management and the Digital Curation Centre
Slides from a couple of webinars given while visiting ANDS in Canberra, Australia. (N.B. We also gave short talks at Statistics New Zealand and Monash University - the slides are more or less the same.)

UK Research Data ManagementThree key trends:- Economic factors- Increased openness andsharing- Increasing requirements(and scrutiny) 9. Economic factorsOpen access to government data (ideological, UKgovernment driven: private sector should be able tobenefit from public resources) 10. Government pressure on RCs6.9 The Research Councils expect the researchers they fund to deposit publishedarticles or conference proceedings in an open access repository at or around thetime of publication. But this practice is unevenly enforced. Therefore, as animmediate step, we have asked the Research Councils to ensure the researchersthey fund fulfil the current requirements. Additionally, the Research Councilshave now agreed to invest 2 million in the development, by 2013, of a UKGateway to Research. In the first instance this will allow ready access toResearch Council funded research information and related data but it will bedesigned so that it can also include research funded by others in due course. TheResearch Councils will work with their partners and users to ensure information ispresented in a readily reusable form, using common formats and open standards.http://www.bis.gov.uk/assets/biscore/innovation/docs/i/11-1387-innovation-and-research-strategy-for-growth.pdf 11. Institutional and funder perspectives- Research today is technology enabled and data intensive- Data as long-term asset; identify and preserve- The fragility and cost of digital data; curate to reuse andpreserve- Data sharing: research pooling, cross-disciplinary and globalpartnering, new research from old, the wealth of knowledge- The cost of technology and human infrastructures- Pressure to show return on public investment of 3.5bn- Compliance with legislation and funder policies- The data deluge: volume and complexity, not just in HEIs- Financial and human consequences from lost data- The cost of administering unmanaged datasets 12. Increased openness and sharing For science to effectively function, and for society to reap the full benefits from scientific endeavours, it is crucial that science data be made openSurfing the TsunamiScience, 11 February 2011 13.

DMP Online: features Helps users meet requirements from multiplemasters (funders, publishers, institutions) Provides tailored guidance at point of need Acts as a communication mechanism betweendifferent stakeholder groups Collateral benefit: raises awareness of RDMissues and may be suitable as a training tool(new JISC projects exploring this) 19. DMP Online v3.0New features in v3.0 (March 2012)- Overlaying multiple templates for hybrid DMPs- Template phases (e.g. pre- / during / post-project)- Granular read / write / share permissions- Customised institutional versions- API for systems interoperability- Shibboleth authentication- Multilingual support- Boilerplate text 20. ii. Policies and roadmaps EPSRC expects all those it funds to have developed a clear roadmap to align theirpolicies and processes with EPSRCs expectations by 1st May 2012, and to befully compliant with these expectations by 1st May 2015.www.epsrc.ac.uk/about/standards/researchdata/Pages/default.aspx 21.

DCC support for institutional RDMThree main strands: Data management roadshows Institutional Engagements New guidance / case studies 24. Data Management roadshows to allow every institution in the UK to prepare for effective research data management, and understand more about how the DCC can help The roadshow as a wholewill feed into theimplementation plan we aredeveloping following the passing of our RDM policyI was looking for a foundation in the issues for a librarian.

Institutional EngagementsWith funding from HEFCE were: Working intensively with 18 HEIs to increase RDM capability 60 days of effort per HEI drawn from a mix of DCC staff Deploy DCC & external tools, approaches & best practice Support varies based on what each institution wants/needs Lessons & examples will be shared with the communitywww.dcc.ac.uk/community/institutional-engagements 27.
