2 a centre of expertise in data curation and preservation DCC/NeSC eScience Workshop, June 2008 Our objectives for today To learn more about eScience initiatives in Edinburgh To tell you about some current DCC activities To identify (some of) your data issues and how we can help To encourage and develop partnerships To identify next steps

3 Phase 2 Community Development Curation Services Tools & Infrastructure Resources and Events Research Agenda SCARP Project UK Digital Curation Centre

4 a centre of expertise in data curation and preservation DCC/NeSC eScience Workshop, June 2008 Community development activities Data Centres support and join-up –Research Data Management Forum eScience Projects –Building closer links & partnerships – e.g. CARMEN

10 a centre of expertise in data curation and preservation DCC/NeSC eScience Workshop, June 2008 DCC Tools Diffuse Standards Frameworks - Access to domain-specific information about the range of standards and specifications for curating and preserving access to digital materials Answers: –What standards should I be using? –When should I use them?

12 a centre of expertise in data curation and preservation DCC/NeSC eScience Workshop, June 2008 Policy environment Data PolicyBBSRCMRCWellcome Responsibility for data management /curation With individual or institutional data custodians Where possible, use recognised data repositories Requirements for data management plan Plan must be submitted with grant application Researchers responsible for data sharing Plan must be submitted with grant application Access to MRC-funded data not to be restricted Data plan accepted good practice; essential in cases of high data volume/perceived sharing benefit Leverage for compliance with mandate Funding included in project FEC Compliance monitored through institutional assessment No funding released without approval of costed data management /sharing plan Grants conditional on sharing plan and include data management cost Some equipment /database funding

13 a centre of expertise in data curation and preservation DCC/NeSC eScience Workshop, June 2008 Policy environment Define current and future research data service needs Identify priorities for action Develop scenarios/options - from do nothing to a managed national service Develop business plan for preferred option(s), with costs/benefits Indicate scale of investment required and estimated ROI

14 a centre of expertise in data curation and preservation DCC/NeSC eScience Workshop, June 2008 Edinburgh eScience Exchange

15 a centre of expertise in data curation and preservation DCC/NeSC eScience Workshop, June 2008 Vol 2 No 2, 2007 published

16 a centre of expertise in data curation and preservation DCC/NeSC eScience Workshop, June 2008 For discussion What are you currently doing to curate and preserve your data? What policies are in place? What types of data, formats and metadata are you dealing with? Where do you plan to store your data? Do you have a repository or content store? Do you have formal ingest processes? What specific challenges do you have?
