4 Open Research Data A Jisc perspective 4 Jisc s Strategic Framework Impact Areas

5 Open Research Data A Jisc perspective 5 Open Research Data Definitions» EPSRC definition: "Research data is defined as recorded factual material commonly retained by and accepted in the scientific community as necessary to validate research findings; although the majority of such data is created in digital format, all research data is included irrespective of the format in which it is created."» Creative Commons: we believe scientific data should be freely available to everyone. We call this idea Open Data.

6 »Loss»Destruction»Pride»Gluttony»Ineptitude»Concealment»Bureaucracy Open Research Data A Jisc perspective 6 What stops research data being open?»complexity»procrastination»lack of potential» People will ask questions So use a data centre or repository» It will be misinterpreted Stuff happens. Also, openness encourages correction» It s not interesting Let others be the judge your noise is my signal» I might get another paper out of it Up to a point. We might get more research out of it» I don t have permission A real problem. But solvable at senior level» It s too bad/complicated see above» It s not a priority Unfortunately, funders are making it so. But if you looked at the evidence, it would be your priority as well With thanks to Kevin Ashley (DCC) for responses

8 Open Research Data A Jisc perspective 8 Unlocking the full value of Scientific Data Riding the wave How Europe can gain from the rising tide of scientific data» Final Report of the High Level Expert Group on Scientific Data - A submission to the European Commission October 2010» Calls for a collaborative data infrastructure that will enable researchers and other stakeholders from education, society and business to use, reuse and exploit research data to the maximum benefit of science and society.» To collect, curate, preserve and make available ever increasing amounts of scientific data, new types of infrastructures will be needed. The potential benefits are enormous but the same is true for the costs. We therefore need to lay the right foundations and the sooner we start the better. - Neelie Kroes, VP European Commission

9 Open Research Data A Jisc perspective 9 Knowledge Exchange response A Surfboard for Riding the Wave» The 5 Knowledge Exchange partner organisations: CSC - IT centre for Science in Finland Denmark s Electronic Research Library (DEFF) German Research Foundation (DFG) Jisc in the United Kingdom SURF in the Netherlands» Builds on the report and presents an overview of the present situation with regard to research data in Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom and offers broad outlines for a possible action programme for the four countries in realising the envisaged collaborative data infrastructure.» Identified 4 key drivers: Incentives for researchers to publish and share their datasets Training in new skills needed for creating, handling, manipulating, analysing, and making available large amounts of data for re-use by others Infrastructure (to make datasets discoverable and accessible) Funding of the infrastructure

10 Open Research Data A Jisc perspective 10 Science as an Open Enterprise Report, 2012 The Royal Society, UK» The conduct and communication of science needs to adapt to this new era of information technology» As a first step towards this intelligent openness, data that underpin a journal article should be made concurrently available in an accessible database. We are now on the brink of an achievable aim: for all science literature to be online, for all of the data to be online and for the two to be interoperable.

11 Open Research Data A Jisc perspective 11 Science as an Open Enterprise Report Six key challenges» A shift away from a research culture where data is viewed as a private preserve» Expanding the criteria used to evaluate research to give credit for useful data communication and novel ways of collaborating» The development of common standards for communicating data» Mandating intelligent openness for data relevant to published scientific papers» Strengthening the cohort of data scientists needed to manage and support the use of digital data (which will also be crucial to the success of private sector data analysis and the government s Open Data strategy)» The development and use of new software tools to automate and simplify the creation and exploitation of datasets

12 Open Research Data A Jisc perspective 12 RCUK s Open Data Dialogue Report, 2012» Undertaken on behalf of the Research Councils UK in partnership with Jisc, the Royal Society and Sciencewise-ERC, this public dialogue explored views on open data, data reuse and data management policies within research» The public dialogue was designed to: Provide insight on the business issues that the dialogue will support, at the research councils and Jisc Build on prior work in the area and account for the wider policy framework Engage people meaningfully around this complex area, enabling the public to frame issues and test out any principles emerging across a range of research contexts..

13 Open Research Data A Jisc perspective 13 Research Funder Policies RCUK Common Principles on Data Policy» Public good: Publicly funded research data are produced in the public interest should be made openly available with as few restrictions as possible» Planning for preservation: Institutional and project specific data management policies and plans needed to ensure valued data remains usable» Discovery: Metadata should be available and discoverable; Published results should indicate how to access supporting data» Confidentiality: Research organisation policies and practices to ensure legal, ethical and commercial constraints assessed; research process should not be damaged by inappropriate release» First use: Provision for a period of exclusive use, to enable research teams to publish results» Recognition: Data users should acknowledge data sources and terms & conditions of access» Public funding: Use of public funds for RDM infrastructure is appropriate and must be efficient and cost-effective

14 Open Research Data A Jisc perspective 14

15 Open Research Data A Jisc perspective 15 Research Funder Policies EPSRC s Expectations for funded Research Organisations (ROs)» ROs will promote internal awareness of these principles» Published research papers should indicate how supporting research data can be accessed» ROs will have policies and processes in place to maintain awareness of and access to their publicly-funded research data holdings» Non-digital publicly-funded research data will be stored in a manner to facilitate it being shared on request» ROs will ensure that appropriately structured metadata describing the research data is published and freely accessible» Where access to the data is restricted the published metadata should also give the reason and summarise the conditions which must be satisfied for access to be granted» ROs will ensure research data is securely preserved for a minimum of 10 years from last access» ROs will ensure effective data curation is provided throughout the full data lifecycle» ROs will ensure adequate resources are provided to support the curation of publicly-funded research data» Roadmap in place by 1 May 2012» Compliance by 1 May 2015

16 Open Research Data A Jisc perspective 16 Principles of Open Data From a US/UK Open Data Summit Washington, April 2014» Data, metadata and computer code (used to evidence published paper or equivalent) must be: discoverable readily found to exist by online search accessible when discovered they can be interrogated intelligible - they can be understood assessable e.g. the provenance and reliability of data re-useable - they can be re used and re combined with other data as a private preserve» Data generated by publicly/charitably funded research not used in evidence should be made open after a pre-specified period» Re use of data must formally acknowledge the originators» Cost of creating open data is an intrinsic cost of research» Openness is limited for commercially sensitivity, privacy of personal information, safety and security but do not provide justification for a blanket ban» Existing processes, reward structures and behaviour that inhibit or prevent data sharing should be reformed to encourage/facilitate/reward data sharing and collaboration.

17 Open Research Data A Jisc perspective 17 Funding Research Data Infrastructures Preliminary report of responses to SE members questionnaire Sept 2014» Preliminary qualitative analysis of the outcomes of a questionnaire sent to Science Europe Members, examining the funding landscape relating to research data infrastructure and research data management within Europe.» Analysis will help inform and direct subsequent stages of the research to provide knowledge, eventually leading to a set of recommendations for policy-makers both on the national and European level» Sent to 57 SE members.» 22 responses, mostly from Research Funding Organisations
