The Dryad-UK vision A UK mirror of the Dryad repository Why? So that Dryad becomes truly international For secutiry To utilize UK expertise in data management How? As an activity of the British Library In close partnership with UK Pubmed Central, for mutual benefits Physically hosted by MIMAS With increased journal coverage Including, but not exclusively, infectious disease journals With buy-in from publishers as well as journal editors
How to achieve the Dryad-UK vision – short-term JISC one-year start-up funding for Dryad-UK under call 14/09 Innovative publication of research data that cites Dryad as an exemplar To establish Dryad-UK within its host institution To develop a technical and organizational model, and a legal and management structure, for the international activities of Dryad To negotiate participation with a wider range of journals To develop automated means of metadata sharing, as presently exist using Manuscript Central, for other publishing systems To explore notification procedures with institutional repositories To develop a viable business model for future development without JISC support To do all this with support and guidance from DCC, RIN and UKRDS, so that it forms an integrated component within the UK research data management landscape
How to achieve the Dryad-UK vision – medium-term Three-year funding (2011-2014), possibly from the Wellcome Trust and other biomedical charities in partnership with MRC and BBSRC, to develop Dryad-UK in parallel with development of UK Pubmed Central To expand journal coverage and data ingest ten-fold To develop reciprocal citation links to articles in UK Pubmed Central To develop working links with institutional repositories, in conjuction with the UK Research Data Service Registry, for metadata sharing To ensure that datasets, created during Wellcome-funded and other UK charity-funded and research council-funded research projects, are submitted to Dryad-UK, linked to papers in UK Pubmed Central To build user services over the Dryad data, to assist discovery, visualization and re-use To promote and quantify data access and re-use To change the culture with regard to data publication To implement a viable cost-recovery model for Dryad, integrated into conventional academic publishing activities and funding models
How to achieve the Dryad-UK vision – long-term Dryad established as an integral non-profit part of the biomedical research publishing infrastructure, with widepread default usage Dedicated to data publication under open data licenses Serving the long tail of particulars data sets, as the European Bioinformatics Institutes data services cater for universals Self-financing, with an equitable cost recovery model supported through research grant funding as part of data management plans
What is required NOW? Partnership from the British Library, MIMAS, DCC, RIN, UKPMC Expressions of collaborative willingness to explore data deposition to Dryad linked to journal article acceptance by at least three major life science publishers Biomed Central, NPG, OUP, PLoS, Wiley-Blackwell... and some life science journal editors Identification of individuals who might be suitable for two roles Project Manager for Dryad-UK JISC Project Technical Developer both initially funded on the JISC grant A draft project grant application written by May 10th Letters of support from all partnering organizations received by May 18th
