ILI2007: open access voor ruwe data

3 Reacties

Open the doors to perception was de presentatie van Stuart Macdonald, Edinburgh University (Scotland) en Luis Martinez, London School of Economics (UK).
Qua presentatie was deze nogal matig: ik begreep pas halverwege waar het over ging 😦 nl databases voor ruwe onderzoeksdata. Ik ben daar wel in geinteresseerd, maar weet er weinig van af en gezien hun opzet kwam het niet goed over.

Gelukkig hebben ze wel een site waar diverse publicaties op staan (deze presentatie) zie daar dus. Ik heb slechts wat losse kreten te melden:

Open standards – > open sources – > open access (= Free immediate and permanent access for everyone) -> open data

Ze noemden diverse blogs over open access: naast die van Peter Suber ook Digital curation blog, Peter Murray (blogt volgens mij niet meer), OA librarian, Free our data, open knowledge foundation, RIN team blog.
Daarnaast heb je ook verschillende groepen in Facebook

Onder E-research verstaan ze ruwe data die verzameld wordt tijdens onderzoek over wat er precies aan de gang is

Vaak wordt de data lokaal opgeslagen en wordt er verder niets mee gedaan, dat is wel jammer. De vraag is of bibliotheken zich ook met dit soort informatie moeten bezig houden: en het antwoord daarop is ja, er zijn samenwerkingsverbanden daarvoor opgericht van research bibliotheken.

DISC-UK (Edina) heeft een project DataShare opgestart met als doel het delen van deze informatie.

New distributed models of data sharing and archiving for UK research institutions, such as LSE and Edinburgh University, within an institutional repository environment provide opportunities for data librarians because they have data discovery skills and work with research and statistical data.

  1. I’d like to clarify a couple of issues regarding our recent presentation at ILI (‘Open the Data Doors to Perception’) – primarily our talk was aimed at a heterogenous audience of (internet) librarians and as such we tailored our content for such an audience. We were also given 12 minutes within which to convey the rudiments of what is a complex set of concepts. Additionally the abstract provided above was not the original one submitted for the conference programme. DISC-UK members are active members of the International Association for Social Science Information Service and Technology (IASSIST) and as such have an interest in international data-related initiatives. We’d be more than happy to discuss with you any areas of interest which you felt needed clarification. Our DataShare project is still in its formative stage however, again we’d be more than happy to share experiences regarding cultural/legal/technical aspects of Open Data / IR / ‘research data sharing’-related issues and indeed discuss any other areas where you feel there may be some mutual interest. It might be worth referring to ‘State-of-the-art review’ – see URL: http://www.disc-uk.org/docs/state-of-the-art-review.pdf to get an overall picture of UK activity in this area.

    regards
    Stuart Macdonald & Luis Martinez

  2. Hi Stuart and Luis,

    Thank you for clarifying these issues.
    I hope I didn’t offend you by the log above: that was absolutely not my intention, I was just sorry that I couldn’t understand more of your presentations …: 12 minutes is indeed much to short for such a complicated matter ;-).

    .

  3. Dee – no offence taken! As I said feel free to contact us should you have any questions. We’d certainly be interested in hearing what your (non-UK) experiences are regarding the issues surrounding research data sharing. We shall be attending (and hopefully presenting findings from our project) the Open Repositories Conference at the University of Southampton in April 2008 (http://or08.ecs.soton.ac.uk/) – if you happen to attend please look us up.
