Joint Information Systems Committee Data Publications – Dryad-UK Workshop Simon Hodson,
Joint Information Systems Committee Context Digital research data has become increasingly important in most research areas. Good management, curation and preservation is important for the integrity of science. Research data has value for verification, reuse and repurposing; reuse of research data can be particularly important in interdisciplinary studies. Research funders are increasingly asking researchers to make the underlying research available. Scholarly publications are beginning to insist that underlying datasets should be made publicly available.
Joint Information Systems Committee The value of research data Research data are a valuable investment. Good research needs good data. JISC wants to encourage research data sharing, open research data. Demonstrate the value of research data: researchers, funders, publishers, institutions. How?
Joint Information Systems Committee Why data publications? Data publications are one way of establishing a value proposition for research data. Data publications are a way of getting researcher buy-in, encouraging increasing view of the value of data; recognition for data publishing. Cultural change: a way of overcoming the prisoners dilemma. Dryad cite impressive rate for researchers submitting data. The foreknowledge that the data will be published improves data management practice; and improves the quality of the research.
Joint Information Systems Committee Challenges… Sensitive data. Anonymisation. Embargoes etc. Reluctance to share. Cost? Is this worth the investment? Promise of critical mass, network effects, cultural change? Preservation / curation challenges: how to fund this?
Joint Information Systems Committee Why Dryad? Partnerships: research data repository, journals, societies, funders etc… Funding model. Serving researchers needs.
Joint Information Systems Committee JISC Managing Research Data Programme (JISCMRD) JISC Research Data Programme seeks to expand effective data management and data sharing to benefit research and the HE sector more generally. Working towards developing a national strategy with key stakeholders (RCs, FCs, Institutions etc). Establish the foundations for an effective UK research data infrastructure.

Joint Information Systems Committee 14/09 Call Strand B: Data Publications Funding is available for projects to explore and pilot innovative technical and organisational models for enhanced research data publications. Intended outcomes are models of scholarly publication that encourage the open publication of research data, and thereby stimulate the better management, more open sharing and easier reuse of research data.
Joint Information Systems Committee Strand B: Enhanced research data publications Data journal, enhanced publication or overlay journals… Scholarly, peer-reviewed, online publications that champion the sharing of data as an output of research activity, by exposing or linking to data held in an associated repository or archive. OJIMS: project to establish an open access, subject based repository for the meteorological sciences and scoped an overlay journal that would link into those data and documents. DRYAD: a repository for published research data in the field of evolutionary biology, with tight linkages to major evolutionary biology journals and domain-specific community databases.
Joint Information Systems Committee Strand B: Approach Projects may consider technical issues. Projects must consider organisational matters. The development of appropriate partnerships is essential to this strand as is a consideration of sustainability. Bids must demonstrate clearly how the proposed pilot will involve an appropriate partnerships that is likely to ensure the pilot data publication model will gain support from the research community and stakeholders targeted. By involving key stakeholders, bids should demonstrate that the proposed work will have as broad as possible an impact.
Joint Information Systems Committee Strand B: Deliverables A pilot model for an innovative research data publication, journal. Report considerations of technical, organisational and partnership issues. A business model addressing take-up and sustainability.
