"Developing Criteria to Establish Trusted Digital Repositories"

Posted in Digital Curation & Digital Preservation, Digital Repositories on May 25th, 2017

John Faundeen has published "Developing Criteria to Establish Trusted Digital Repositories" in Data Science Journal.

Here's an excerpt:

This paper details the drivers, methods, and outcomes of the U.S. Geological Survey’s quest to establish criteria by which to judge its own digital preservation resources as Trusted Digital Repositories. . . . The methods entailed seeking existing evaluation criteria from national and international organizations such as International Standards Organization (ISO), U.S. Library of Congress, and Data Seal of Approval upon which to model USGS repository evaluations. Certification, complexity, cost, and usability of existing evaluation models were key considerations. The selected evaluation method was derived to allow the repository evaluation process to be transparent, understandable, and defensible; factors that are critical for judging competing, internal units. Implementing the chosen evaluation criteria involved establishing a cross-agency, multi-disciplinary team that interfaced across the organization.

"Research Data Management in Academic Institutions: A Scoping Review"

Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management on May 24th, 2017

Laure Perrier et al. have published "Research Data Management in Academic Institutions: A Scoping Review" in PLOS ONE.

Here's an excerpt:

Interest in research data management in the global community is on the rise. Recent activity has included the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation moving their open access/open data policy, considered to be exceptionally strong, into force at the beginning of 2017 [10]. Researchers working towards a solution to the Zika virus organized themselves to publish all epidemiological and clinical data as soon as it was gathered and analyzed [11]. Fecher and colleagues [12] conducted a systematic review focusing on data sharing to support the development of a conceptual framework, however it lacked rigorous methods, such as the use of a comprehensive search strategy [13]. Another review on data sharing was conducted by Bull and colleagues [14] that examined stakeholders' perspectives on ethical best practices but focused specifically on low- and middle-income settings. In this scoping review, we aim to assess the research literature that examines research data management as it relates to academic institutions. It is a time of increasing activity in the area of research data management [15] and higher learning institutions need to be ready to address this change, as well as provide support for their faculty and researchers. Identifying the current state of the literature so there is a clear understanding of the evidence in the area will provide guidance in planning strategies for services and support, as well as outlining essential areas for future research endeavors in research data management. The purpose of this study is to describe the volume, topics, and methodological nature of the existing research literature on research data management in academic institutions.
