"Going Beyond Data Management Planning: Comprehensive Research Data Services"

Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management on September 5th, 2014

Katherine G. Akers has published "Going Beyond Data Management Planning: Comprehensive Research Data Services" in College & Research Libraries News.

Here's an excerpt:

We should keep in mind that DMP requirements impact only a small proportion of academic researchers and, furthermore, that such requirements are only one factor motivating researchers to share their data. Just as many, if not a greater number of, researchers might face expectations from journal publishers to share the data underlying their research articles. Some researchers receive funding from federal agencies that have data sharing policies but that do not require a DMP. Also, many researchers may desire to make their data available to a wide audience for personal or altruistic reasons, such as to permit others to replicate their methods and analysis, to allow others to re-purpose their data in new ways, or to increase the visibility and impact of their work.

            Portico has released "Scaling Up and Scaling Out: Leveraging Preservation Infrastructure and Experience to Benefit the Community."

            Here's an excerpt:

            Now well into its eleventh year as a preservation archive and service, Portico's preservation infrastructure—hardware, software, and key data and metadata models and definitions—has been subject to a continual process of re-view and revision that makes it possible for us to leverage our work to benefit the broader community. Since 2012, Portico has been delivering e-journal con-tent to the British Library as part of their legally mandated deposit program, en-abling the British Library to benefit from existing preservation expertise to manage the normalization of e-journal content. In this paper we will discuss Portico's development, the scaling up of our preservation capacity, the chal-lenges and opportunities in our partnership with the British Library, and the value of leveraging and sharing existing preservation infrastructure, skills, and experience for the good of the broader community.

                "Robin Peek was one of the earliest advocates for open access to research, one of the first to write about it regularly, and one of the first to teach a course about it, which she taught at Simmons." said Dr. Peter Suber, Director of the Harvard Office for Scholarly Communication, the Harvard Open Access Project and co-founder of the Open Access Directory. "She is also the editor and co-founder of the Open Access Directory, a globally recognized encyclopedia of open access hosted by Simmons. The Open Access Directory is unique in that it is hosted and preserved by a library school, open to public contributions, edited for quality, and featured on every major list of essential resources on the topic." The six-year old Open Access Directory, a wiki managed by the OA community that provides reference lists about open access to scientists and scholars and has had more than four million views. Peek will continue to be the editor of the Open Access Directory.
