5 A centre of expertise in digital information management Update on JISC DR activity 1 Commissioned reports: Review (Feb 2005), Roadmap (April 2006), Linking UK Repositories (June 2006) £4M DR Programme 2005 –21 Projects: some working with data, VERSIONS (of eprints) DR support at UKOLN : wiki –Advocacy Package (autumn 2006) –Project synthesis, collecting user scenarios, developing use cases, scoping/evaluating reference models: OAIS? –Standards (and harmonisation) –ePrints Dublin Core Application Profile Working Group –Remote deposit API Working Group (Mellon New York meeting) UK IR cross search service (eprints)

6 A centre of expertise in digital information management e-Research: understanding business process Project StORe: Source-to-Output Repositories (Edinburgh) –primary data : research publications –Survey questionnaire RepoMMan: Repository Metadata and Management (Hull) –Survey questionnaire and interviews –Activity diagram R4L Repository for the Laboratory (Southampton) –Crystallography workflow analysis, automated data capture, user deposit scenarios RAW DATADERIVED DATARESULTS DATA

7 A centre of expertise in digital information management eBank UK Project Promote open access crystallography data Aggregator service harvests OAI metadata from institutional data repository (e-Crystals archive) Service linking from data to derived research publication Embedding eBank service in learning workflows: pedagogy Future federation plans for crystallography data repositories UKOLN (lead), University of Southampton, University of Manchester

8 A centre of expertise in digital information management eBank Metadata Publication Using simple Dublin Core Crystal structure Title (Systematic IUPAC Name) Authors Affiliation Creation Date Additional chemical information through Qualified Dublin Core Empirical formula International Chemical Identifier InChI Compound Class & Keywords Specifies which datasets are present in an entry Application Profile DOIs, data citation

9 A centre of expertise in digital information management Discovering data: Coles, S.J., Day, N.E., Murray-Rust, P., Rzepa, H.S., Zhang, Y., Org. Biomol. Chem., 2005, (10), DOI: /b502828k Domain identifier: International Chemical Identifier (INChI) code Google molecule using INChI Slide from Simon Coles

10 A centre of expertise in digital information management Data descriptions Validation, publication & discovery of data models & schema Metadata packaging standards –METS –MPEG 21 DIDL –Complex object model? Semantic descriptions –Formal controlled vocabularies –High-level and domain ontologies –Inter-disciplinary discovery Informal social network approaches folksonomies

11 A centre of expertise in digital information management Adding value: repository services Tools: for deposit, normalisation, manipulation, transformation….. Linking, annotation, visualisation Aggregators: generic, (sub-) disciplinary Knowledge extraction: Mining (data, text, structures) National Centre for Text Mining NaCTeM Modelling (economic, climate, mathematical, biological…) Analysis (statistical, lexical, gene….)

12 A centre of expertise in digital information management JISC DR update 2 OpenDOAR Directory of Open Access repositories: Universities of Nottingham and Lund Interim Repository Access management systems integration: Shibboleth New funding 2006: Capital Programme Roadmap, Repositories & Preservation Programme –£14M over 3 years but current Call: –Repositories Support Project –Tools & Innovation Strand –Discovery to Delivery Strand Data Curation and Preservation

13 A centre of expertise in digital information management Digital repositories, OA & preservation Long-term access: trust, responsibility, policy Trusted DR Audit Checklist for Certification Draft Research Libraries Group-NARA Taskforce Defined criteria under 4 categories –Organisation –Functions, processes & procedures –Designated community & usability –Technologies & technical infrastructure UK Digital Curation Centre: advice, tools & services RepInfo Registry CASPAR Preservation Framework

14 A centre of expertise in digital information management Political, cultural, socio-legal, IPR Funding bodies position on OA: Research Councils RCUK statement, Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), IRRA Institutional OA position: –Business drivers? University of Southampton Self-Archiving Policy and a mandate (not a recommendation) –Legal responsibilities as publisher, IPR, TrustDR, licences, automated Digital Rights Management DRM Culture & human factors: –Sharing culture? –Multidisciplinary teams: computer scientists, domain scientists, digital library experts, statisticians/modellers e.g. eBank project –Lessons learnt: e-Science Human Factors Audit Report (to be published 2006) Roy Kawalsky, Loughborough
