JISCMRD Programme Progress Workshop / DCC Institutional Engagements Workshop, Wed 24-Thu 25 October, Nottingham
October 31, 2012
Last week we have been attending the JISCMRD Programme meeting, here in Nottingham. This was an opportunity for projects on the JISC Managing Research Data Programme 2011-13 and DCC Institutional Engagements and associate projects to meet up and discuss progress.
The event covered
- Institutional RDM policies; developing an institutional strategy and an ‘EPSRC’ roadmap.
- Managing active data: storage, access, academic dropbox services.
- Data management planning: developing good practice and providing effective support.
- Data repositories and storage: options for repository service solutions.
- Training & guidance.
- Triage and handover: what to keep and where to entrust it? Selection and appraisal; deposit and handover.
- Business case: covering roles, responsibility, costing, sustainability, advocacy etc.
- Data catalogues: metadata profiles, identifiers.
In addition to presentations, most projects also brought poster detailing their progress. We will tell you all about our poster next week.
It was very interesting to here from various projects around the UK, and how they are going about implementing data management plans, and data repositories at their institutions.
Of particular interest to JoRD project was PRIME.
PRIME along with PREPARDE and ourselves, are part of the JISC Managing Research Data: Innovative Research Data Publication strand.
PRIME (Publisher, repository and institutional metadata exchange), will be looking into automated ways for publishers, repositories and institutions to share metadata about datasets.
An example use case, would be that a researcher submits a data paper to a metajournal, which in turn shares the metadata on the dataset with subject and institutional repositories.
