    Policy Recommendations for Open Access to Research Data

    Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Open Access, Reports and White Papers on January 20th, 2015

    The RECODE project has released Policy Recommendations for Open Access to Research Data.

    Here's an excerpt:

    These policy recommendations are targeted at key stakeholders in the scholarly communication ecosystem, namely research funders, research institutions, data managers, and publishers. They will assist each of the stakeholders in furthering the goals of open access to research data by providing both over-arching and stakeholder-specific recommendations. These function, as suggestions to address and attend to central issues that RECODE identified through the research work.

    The current report thus comprises:

    • summary of project findings
    • overarching recommendations
    • targeted policy recommendations for funders, research institutions, data managers, and publishers
    • practical guides for developing policies for funders, research institutions, data managers, and publishers
    • resources to expedite the process of policy development and implementation among stakeholders

          "Building Data Services from the Ground Up: Strategies and Resources"

          Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management on January 19th, 2015

          Heather L. Coates has published "Building Data Services from the Ground Up: Strategies and Resources" in the Journal of eScience Librarianship.

          Here's an excerpt:

          There is a scarcity of practical guidance for developing data services in an academic library. Data services, like many areas of research, require the expertise and resources of teams spanning many disciplines. While library professionals are embedded into the teaching activities of our institutions, fewer of us are embedded in research activities occurring across the full life cycle. The significant challenges of managing, preserving, and sharing data for reuse demand that we take a more active role. Providing support for funder data management plans is just one option in the data services landscape. Awareness of the institutional and library culture in which we operate places an emphasis on the importance of relationships. Understanding the various cultures in which our researchers operate is crucial for delivering data services that are relevant and utilized. The goal of this article is to guide data specialists through this landscape by providing key resources and strategies for developing locally relevant services and by pointing to active communities of librarians and researchers tackling the challenges associated with digital research data.

                    "Science 2.0 Repositories: Time for a Change in Scholarly Communication"

                    Posted in Digital Repositories, Open Science on January 19th, 2015

                    Massimiliano Assante, et al. have published "Science 2.0 Repositories: Time for a Change in Scholarly Communication" in D-Lib Magazine.

                    Here's an excerpt:

                    Information and communication technology (ICT) advances in research infrastructures are continuously changing the way research and scientific communication are performed. Scientists, funders, and organizations are moving the paradigm of "research publishing" well beyond traditional articles. The aim is to pursue an holistic approach where publishing includes any product (e.g. publications, datasets, experiments, software, web sites, blogs) resulting from a research activity and relevant to the interpretation, evaluation, and reuse of the activity or part of it. The implementation of this vision is today mainly inspired by literature scientific communication workflows, which separate the "where" research is conducted from the "where" research is published and shared. In this paper we claim that this model cannot fit well with scientific communication practice envisaged in Science 2.0 settings. We present the idea of Science 2.0 Repositories (SciRepos), which meet publishing requirements arising in Science 2.0 by blurring the distinction between research life-cycle and research publishing. SciRepos interface with the ICT services of research infrastructures to intercept and publish research products while providing researchers with social networking tools for discovery, notification, sharing, discussion, and assessment of research products.
