ICSU-­WDS & RDA Publishing Data Services WG Interoperability Framework Recommendations

Adrian Burton & Hylke Koers
The ICSU-WDS & RDA Publishing Data Services group proposes an approach to sharing information about the links between the literature and research data. A set of hubs will collect literature­data (as well as data­data) links from their natural communities using minor extensions to existing local procedures and, in some cases, inference. The hubs agree on an interoperability framework with a common information model and open exchange methods, optimised for exchanging information among the hubs. The...

Survey on bridging the gap between funders and communities – perspectives on benefits and challenges of FAIR assessments

Christophe Bahim, , Edit Herczog, Keith Russell & Shelley Stall
This report provides a consolidated view of the answers collected during a survey conducted in October 2020. This survey took place in the context of the work of the RDA FAIR Data Maturity Model Working Group and aimed at investigating the differences of perspectives on benefits and challenges of the FAIR assessments between funders and research communities.

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...

Previously: BioSharing Recommendations: data repositories, standards and policies in the life, biomedical and environmental sciences

Peter McQuilton, Simon Hodson, Rebecca Lawrence & Susanna-Assunta Sansone
On 8 October 2018, the RDA BioSharing Registry: connecting data policies, standards & databases in life sciences Working Group was renamed to the FAIRSharing Registry: connecting data policies, standards & databases RDA Working Group. This change was approved by RDA Council following interaction with RDA Technical Advisory Board and the Working Group Co-chairs. The group name change reflects the broader constituency and potential user base of the working group recommendation, which goes beyond the biosciences...

Addressing the Gaps: Recommendations for Supporting the Long Tail of Research Data

Wolfram Horstmann, Amy Nurnberger, Kathleen Shearer & Malcolm Wolski
Major societal challenges such as health, climate change, energy, food availability, migration and peace depend on the contributions of a distributed and diverse international network of researchers and subject experts. The aim of open science is to improve the accessibility of research outputs, including articles, data and other research objects, so that researchers, industry and the public can make use of, build on, and ensure the validity of these research outputs. Among research outputs, research...

Research Data Repository Interoperability WG Final Recommendations

Huge amounts of research data stored in a multitude of research data repository platforms can often only be used by a comparably small audience. On the one hand, this is caused by differences in semantics, underlying data models and metadata schemas, whose complexity and number prevents scientists from taking advantage of them. On the other hand, a lack of interoperability between research data repository platforms causes research data not to be used to their full...

Summary of Virtual Layer Recommendations

This output describes a concept for establishing a comprehensive network of components for the management of digital objects. The concept follows principles of layering and modularity and describes a set of key components required to realize a network for e-infrastructures in practice.

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...

RDA DMP Common Standard for Machine-actionable Data Management Plans

Paul Walk, Tomasz Miksa & Peter Neish

A curriculum for foundational Research Data Science skills for Early Career Researchers

This recommendation describes the curriculum and example materials to give Early Career Researchers (ECR’s) the foundational skills in Data Science to work with their data. This curriculum combines technical skills, such as Software Carpentry with responsible research practices such as Open and Responsible Research.

Compilation of Data Versioning Use cases from the RDA Data Versioning Working Group

Jens Klump, Lesley Wyborn, Robert Downs, Ari Asmi, Mingfang Wu, Gerry Ryder & Julia Martin
Data versioning is a fundamental element to ensuring the reproducibility of research. Work in other RDA groups on data provenance and data citation, as well as the W3C Dataset Exchange Working Group, have highlighted that definitions of data versioning concepts and recommended practices are still missing. An important driver to more closely examine data versioning practices came from the work of the RDA Working Group on Data Citation, whose final report recognised the need for...

FAIR Data Maturity Model: specification and guidelines

The FAIR Data Maturity Model defines a set of indicators, their priorities and evaluation methods for the evaluation of the FAIR principles to be used as a common approach across assessment methodologies.

RDA COVID-19 Guidelines and Recommendations

RDA Governance Document
