Data Foundation and Terminology Work Group Products: Results RFC

Gary Berg-Cross, Raphael Ritz & Peter Wittenburg
The goals of the DFT Working Group were:  Moving the discussion in the data community towards an agreed, upon suite of terms relevant to RDA groups with a focus on basic core model of related terms along with some basic principles that will harmonize the data organization solutions.  Fostering an effective RDA community culture by converging on essential terminology arising from agreed upon reference models. Based on a variety of data models and...

Data Type Registries working group output

Larry Lannom, Daan Broeder & Giridhar Manepalli
the outcomes of the DTR WG can be summarized as: • Confirmation that detailed and precise data typing is a key consideration in data sharing and reuse and that a federated registry system for such types is highly desirable and needs to accommodate each community’s own requirements • Deployment of a prototype registry implementing one potential data model, against which various use cases can be tested • Involvement of multiple ongoing scientific data management efforts,...

Practical Policy

Reagan Moore, Rainer Stotzka, Claudia Cacciari & Petr Benedikt
Computer actionable policies are used to enforce management, automate administrative tasks, validate assessment criteria, and automate scientific analyses. The benefits of using policies include minimization of the amount of labor needed to manage a collection, the ability to publish to the users the rules that are being used, and the ability to automate process management. Currently all sites and scientific communities use their own set of policies, if any. A generic set of policies that...

PID Information Types WG final deliverable

Tobias Weigel, Timothy DiLauro & Thomas Zastrow
The working group on Persistent Identifier Information Types of the Research Data Alliance concerned itself with the essential types of information associated with persistent identifiers. The working group developed a conceptual model for structuring typed information, an application programming interface for access to typed information and a demonstrator implementing the interface. The final deliverable consists of a summarizing report, the interface specification and a set of exemplary types.

Joint Declaration of Data Citation Principles

Data Citation Synthesis Group
Sound, reproducible scholarship rests upon a foundation of robust, accessible data. For this to be so in practice as well as theory, data must be accorded due importance in the practice of scholarship and in the enduring scholarly record. In other words, data should be considered legitimate, citable products of research. Data citation, like the citation of other evidence and sources, is good research practice and is part of the scholarly ecosystem supporting data reuse....

RDA Recommendation on PID Kernel Information

Tobias Weigel, Beth Plale, Mark Parsons, Gabriel Zhou, Yu Luo, Ulrich Schwardmann, Robert Quick, Margareta Hellström & Kei Kurakawa
Global middleware infrastructure is insufficient for robust data identification, discovery, and use. While infrastructure is emerging within sub- ecosystems such as the DOI ecosystem of services purposed for data and literature objects (i.e., DataCite, CHORUS, CrossRef), in general the layers of abstraction that have made the Internet so easy to build on, is lacking for data especially for computer (machine) automated services. The goal of the PID Kernel Information recommendation is to advance a small...
