3 Roadmap Research Data Signposts : Directions of travel Barriers, Fuel or Freeway : Scale, Openness, Attribution Capacity and Capability :Driving transformational change http://www.flickr.com/photos/lenakorsnes/3284269/

4 Research Data Signposts : Directions of travel http://www.flickr.com/photos/leongsoong/2429599748/

5 http://containerconversions.com/container- gallery.php?cat=15 Your data in their Cloud?

6 all too many observations lie isolated and forgotten on personal hard drives and CDs trapped by technical, legal and cultural barriers...

7 Share my data?

8 Why? Lack of awareness of potential? Reluctance to collaborate and share? November 2009

9 The slow socialisation of science Science as a social activity Tweet Blog Comment Rate Vote Recommend Tag Share Mash Inter-institutional collaboration – better science (Brian Uzzi, 2008) Team science at Web-Scale?

10 Barriers, Fuel or Freeway : Scale Openness Attribution http://www.flickr.com/photos/natmeister/2153749348/

11 A centre of expertise in digital information management www.ukoln.ac.uk

12 Pacific Biosciences California Next-next generation sequencing Single molecule sequencers Complete human genome in 15 minutes by 2013

13 A centre of expertise in digital information management www.ukoln.ac.uk Multi-scale : from Diamond Light Source …..

14 A centre of expertise in digital information management www.ukoln.ac.uk …..to the Laboratory bench

15 Infrastructure for Integration in the Structural Sciences (I2S2) Bridging the chasm between large scale facilities and the laboratory bench Integrated Information Model based on the Core Scientific MetaData Schema and the DCC Curation Lifecycle Model Use cases and Inter-disciplinary Pilots Cost-benefit analysis: before and after

16 Transcalar 4D data modelling of pancreatic organogenesis in mouse Virtual pancreas computational model anticipates in vivo biological findings

17 72 partners (Europe) >40 models (coastal seas) > 15 institute feeds Citation of models? Curation & preservation of models?

18 We can accurately estimate the current level of weekly influenza activity in the US with a reporting lag of about one day. Validation & verification? Societal implications?

19 Barriers, Fuel or Freeway : Scale Openness Attribution http://www.flickr.com/photos/natmeister/2153749348/

20 Continuum of Openness Open accessClosed Access Participation Lone scholar Professional, experts Volunteers interested amateurs Citizen science dark data Creative Commons Attribution-Non-Commercial-Share Alike 2.0

21 Radical? Fringe? Transferable to other disciplines?

22 Peer Production Can this model be applied to other disciplines? Cost benefits?

23 An early citizen scientist?

24 110 years later Still engaging the public in science....

25

26 Working with professional scientists

27 How can scientists learn from citizen journalists?

28 Privacy issues?

29 You have zero privacy anyway. Get over it Scott McNealy, CEO Sun Microsystems, 1999

30 Solve puzzles for science

31 Crowdsourcing science?

32 Collaboration market New business model?

33 Attitudes to citizen science? Strategy & policy implications for funders? Impact on research quality? Societal implications? Costs? Benefits? Risks?

34 Barriers, Fuel or Freeway : Scale Openness Attribution http://www.flickr.com/photos/natmeister/2153749348/

35 H Factor – from Google Scholar Grant/Manuscript Review Factor – cumulated authenticated reviews Annotations/Software/Datasets Factor – cumulated entries to OA archive (data, sequences, software) Web Factor – authenticated blog / wiki posts

36 Formal recognition? Incentive and reward structure? Research funder position? Publisher / learned society view? Dec 16, Washington DC

37 Capacity and Capability: Driving transformational change http://www.flickr.com/photos/31601954@N07/2960517039/

38 Research Infrastructure People Data Services Process SkillsWorkflows Research Infrastructure: primary components Is your institution ready for open science at Web-Scale?

39 New academic structures? New policies? IPR issues?

40 Open Science at Web-Scale Report 2009 Library and Information Services roles?

41 Advocacy & support? New roles, new skills, new curricula?

42 Data Informatics: Logistics dilemma Professional scientistCitizens Capability Capacity Data scientists, LIS Peer production Volunteers, interested amateurs Community curation Creative Commons Attribution-Non-Commercial-Share Alike 2.0 Professional scientist Observations Audit Preservation Ontologies Metadata schema Annotation Data management plans Selection & Appraisal Data cleansing Training Visualisation

43 Take homes 1.Open Science = accessible data + wider participation 2.We need new metrics 3.Are our institutions ready? 4.Capacity : Capability 5.Articulate range of values and benefits http://www.flickr.com/photos/dtmateojr/3835521363/

44 http://profiles.nlm.nih.gov/KR/B/B/H/K/ For Rosalind Franklin For whom, open science came too late... http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic- art/217394/99712/Rosalind-Franklin

45 Moving to Multi-Scale Science: Managing Complexity & Diversity Thank you Slides will be available at : http://www.ukoln.ac.uk/ukoln/staff/e.j.lyon/presentations.html http://www.dcc.ac.uk/
