Data Lifecycles & Management Plans
Data Lifecycles and Management Plans A bit of Theory Data lifecycle models and what they’re good for. Some jargon and definitions. From lifecycles to management plans. Group exercise –Drafting a Data Management Plan mins
Data Lifecycle Project Planning Data Collection Data Analysis Data Distribution / Archiving Data Discovery / Re-use Data Re-analysis
because good research needs good data Digital Data Curation Centre Lifecycle Model
1. Create 2. Active Use 3. Selection & Evaluation 4. Deposit PhD & Data 5. Preservation & Re-Use 1.What data will I produce? 2.How will I organise the data? 3.Is my data management working well? What data will I keep? 4. What data will be deposited and where? 5. Who will be interested in re-using the data? Data Lifecycles & Data Management Plans
1. Create 2. Active Use 3. Selection & Evaluation 4. Deposit PhD & Data 5. Preservation & Re-Use 1.What data will I produce? Text documents Artefact analyses Sample analyses Survey data Drawings Photographs Recorded interviews Etc.. Data Lifecycles & Data Management Plans
1. Create 2. Active Use 3. Selection & Evaluation 4. Deposit PhD & Data 5. Preservation & Re-Use 2. How will I look after my data? File structure File naming What file formats will I use? Which software will I use? Roughly how many files? How will I describe and document my data? Data Lifecycles & Data Management Plans
1. Create 2. Active Use 3. Selection & Evaluation 4. Deposit PhD & Data 5. Preservation & Re-Use 3.Evaluating data management: Is the file structure / naming understandable to others? Are further data required? Are new data types required? Which data will be kept? Which data can be discarded? Data Lifecycles & Data Management Plans
4. What data will be deposited and where? Define the core data set of the project Which data will be included in the thesis? Which data are supplementary? Will I produce an E-Thesis? Where will I deposit my E-Thesis? Will I deposit supplementary data? Data Lifecycles & Data Management Plans 1. Create 2. Active Use 3. Selection & Evaluation 4. Deposit PhD & Data 5. Preservation & Re-Use
5. Preservation and Re-Use Who will be interested in re-using the data? Is there sufficient information to allow easy re-use of the data? Data Lifecycles & Data Management Plans 1. Create 2. Active Use 3. Selection & Evaluation 4. Deposit PhD & Data 5. Preservation & Re-Use The best way to help preserve data is to plan for its re-use (Archaeology Data Service) […in 10, 50, 100 or even 500 years time…]
1. Create 2. Active Use 3. Selection & Evaluation 4. Publish & Deposit Data 5. Preservation & Re-Use Who owns the original data? Are the data covered by Intellectual Property Rights? Are there sensitive archaeological data in the project? Are there personal data as part of the project archive? Will I have authority to archive these data? How do I get permission to archive these data? Back to the Future… 1. Create
Exercise 2: Drafting a Data Management Plan ….in reverse order What do you want / have to do with your research data after completing your PhD? Are any of the data sensitive? Who ‘owns’ your research data and will you have authority to archive it? Describe any copyrighted material you plan to include in your thesis, e.g. images. Will you be working with any unusual or large file formats? Describe the core data set of you research.
