Norms for contributing to and using RDA products

The goal of the Research Data Alliance (RDA) is to accelerate international data-driven innovation and discovery by facilitating and removing barriers to research data sharing and exchange. RDA develops a variety of products that help realize this goal. RDA seeks to have these products, especially formal “RDA Recommendations,” to be broadly adopted and used openly and ethically. As such, RDA has developed this set of norms that should guide the use of RDA products in...

WDS/RDA Assessment of Data Fitness for Use WG Outputs and Recommendations

WDS/RDA Assessment of Data Fitness for Use WG
This statement describes the background, efforts and outputs of the WDS/RDA Assessment of Data Fitness for Use Working Group. This group was chartered to develop criteria, procedures for assessment of research data fitness for use, along with a means to communicate this assessment to others. It concluded with the development of a) criteria for research dataset fitness for use compared against the CoreTrustSeal requirements and FAIR principles, and b) a checklist for evaluation of dataset...

39 Hints to Facilitate the Use of Semantics for Data on Agriculture and Nutrition

Agrisemantic Working Group
This document presents the recommendations of the RDA Agrisemantics Working Group (WG) to promote the use of semantics for agricultural data for the purpose of enhancing data interoperability in agriculture. These recommendations are high-level, to encourage researchers and practitioners to extend them according to their area of expertise.

Data Citation of Evolving Data: Recommendations of the RDA Working Group on Data Citation (WGDC)

Andreas Rauber, Ari Asmi, Dieter Van Uytvanck & Stefan Proell
The WGDC recommendations enable researchers and data centers to identify and cite data used in experiments and studies. Instead of providing static data exports or textual descriptions of data subsets, we support a dynamic, query centric view of data sets. The proposed solution enables precise identification of the very subset and version of data used, supporting reproducibility of processes, sharing and reuse of data. The goal of the WG were to create identification mechanisms that...

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...

Wheat Data Interoperability Guidelines, Ontologies and User Cases

Esther Dzalé Yeumo, Richard Fulss, Michael Alaux, Sophie Aubin, Elizabeth Arnaud, Ute Baumann, Laurel Cooper, Robert Davey, , Pierre Larmande, Thomas Letellier, Cyril Pommier, , Rosemary Shrestha, Imma Subirats, & Alex Whan
The International Wheat Initiative (http://www.wheatinitiative.org) has identified the easy access and interoperability of all wheat related data as a top priority for the wheat research community. An important goal is to make the best use of existing genetic, genomic, and phenotypic data in fundamental and applied wheat science. Hence, data interoperability has become a priority in this community, given the ever-growing data deluge coming from improvements in technologies and numeric methods for DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid)...

Research Data Repository Interoperability Primer

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...

Array Databases: Concepts, Standards, Implementations - Recommendations of the RDA Array Database Assessment Working Group (ADA:WG)

Peter Baumann, Dimitar Misev, Vlad Merticariu, Bang Pham Huu, Brennan Bell &
The ADA:WG recommendations provide researchers, data centers, and industry with an overview on the state of the art on Array Database technology. Such technology is gaining interest currently for handling massive spatio-temporal sensor, image, simulation, and statistics data as so-called datacubes. Between September 2016 and March 2018, the ADA:WG has established an introduction to Array Database technology, a comparison of Array Database systems and related technology, a list of pertinent standards with tutorials, and comparative...

RDA Plenary Guidelines

This document describes the guidelines for hosting an RDA Plenary.

Matrix of use cases and functional requirements for research data repository platforms

The matrix describes the functional requirements identified for research data repository platforms. The functional requirements are based on eleven use cases that describe their requirements for digital repository platforms. The matrix provides a description for forty-four requirements and, for each one, provides a functional requirement score that is based on the use cases. Functional requirements of greater importance are identified with higher functional requirement scores. The functional requirement scores can be used to assess research...

Capacity Development Resource Kit

, & Karna Wegner
This Capacity Development Resource Kit presents both the training requirements as defined by the IGAD community and available resources from the aforementioned groups: The Capacity Development for Agriculture Data Working Group conducted a survey to find out more about the training needs that would support the adaption of the working group recommendations. The survey results are presented in this document. This document also includes an overview about available and free training resources in the area...

Use cases and identifier schemes for persistent software source code identification (V1.0)

, Alice Allen, Anita Bandrowski, Peter Chan, Roberto Di Cosmo, Martin Fenner, Leyla Garcia, Morane Gruenpeter, Catherine M. Jones, Daniel S. Katz, John Kunze, Moritz Schubotz & Ilian T. Todorov
Software, and in particular source code, plays an important role in science: it is used in all research fields to produce, transform and analyse research data, and is sometimes itself an object of research and/or an output of research. This output, with inputs from a broad panel of stakeholders, provides an overview of the current state-of-the-art practice in software identification, including use cases and identifier schemes from different academic domains and in industry.

A Framework for the Creation and Management of Research Data Alliance (RDA) Communities of Practice (CoP)

This document outlines the concept, conditions and working mechanisms for a new category of group within the Research Data Alliance, namely a Community of Practice (CoP). In the RDA, Communities of Practice (CoPs) form to build discipline or domain specific communities within RDA as well as to investigate, discuss and provide knowledge and skills on any specific discipline and/or research domain issues relevant to the community and RDA. Communities of Practice are composed of experts...

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.

DSA–WDS Partnership — Catalogue of Common Requirements

This Catalogue of Common Requirements was developed by the DSA–WDS Partnership Working Group on Repository Audit and Certification, a Working Group (WG) of the Research Data Alliance. The goal of the effort was to create a set of harmonized Common Requirements for certification of repositories at the core level, drawing from criteria already put in place by the Data Seal of Approval (DSA) and the ICSU World Data System (ICSU-WDS). An additional goal of the...
