daat

This project will develop a digital preservation assessment tool for use within the UK HE/FE and research, learning and teaching communities. The proposal will provide those responsible for managing digital resources in a variety of institutional settings, including libraries, archives, data centres, computer services and research teams, with a valuable tool for identifying the preservation needs of their digital holdings. It will do so in a way which allows scarce resources to be focussed on those assets where the risk of loss and cost of loss is greatest. This project brings together extensive expertise in digital preservation from the Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) and the University of London Computer Centre (ULCC). Development input will also come from the National Preservation Office, the British Library and The National Archives. Evaluation of the tool in real-world settings will take place in TNA, the BL, and two identified academic institutions (KCL and The School of Advanced Study, University of London.) Dissemination will utilise the wide reach of the consortium's partners and will aid a second, wider test phase. It will also encourage deployment of the tool beyond the JISC community, contributing to the sustainability of the project's outputs. Project start date: 2004-10-04. Project end date: 2005-06-01.

data curation for e-science

The DTI and the Research Councils are committing £118M to a government-industry programme on e-Science. The reason for this investment is that GRID technology is seen as the natural successor to the world wide web and the UK wants to take a leading role in order to develop solutions for its scientists and developing opportunities for its industry. The world wide web has revolutionised the way companies do business and fundamentally altered people's personal lives but it can no longer cope with the demands being placed on it by science. The world wide web allows very easy access to information, Grid allows that same easy access to computing power, data processing and communication of the results. The opportunities are immense, it will allow the efficient manipulation of vast amounts of information such as that contained in the human genome or the results from experiments in CERN's new Large Hadron Collider. It will also allow the ability to mine data again and again by comparing existing data sets collected for one purpose with new and previously unrelated information, so generating new knowledge. This consultancy will establish the current provision and future requirements for curation of primary research data being generated within e-science in the UK. This will include the e-science core programme but is anticipated to extend beyond this to other e-science research and primary research data. A consultancy report will provide a synthesis of findings and make recommendations for future action. The consultancy will support aims to manage JISC involvement in e-Science and the Research Grid, and to work in partnership to support the research community through activities such as its digital preservation programme. Project start date: 2003-02-01. Project end date: 2004-02-02. (Excerpt from this source)

data train project

The DataTrain project aims to build on findings and tools developed in the Incremental project (JISC 07/09 funding strand) by developing disciplinary focussed data management training modules for post-graduate courses in Archaeology and Social Anthropology at the University of Cambridge. To this end, the project will develop training modules for each of the two departments, and pilot these as part of the departments' postgraduate training provision in Spring of 2011. Beyond this, the modules would be embedded within research methods courses in each department. To extend its impact, the project would also make the training resources available through the University of Cambridge's institutional repository's support provision and via the Archaeology Data Service (ADS) and Digital Curation Centre (DCC). Project start date: 2010-08-01. Project end date: 2011-07-31. (Excerpt from this source)

datashare

DataShare, led by Edina, arises from an existing UK consortium of data support professionals working in departments and academic libraries in universities (Data Information Specialists Committee-UK), and builds on an international network with a tradition of data sharing and data archiving dating back to the 1960s in the social sciences. By working together across four universities and internally with colleagues already engaged in managing open access repositories for e-prints, this partnership will introduce and test a new model of data sharing and archiving to UK research institutions. By supporting academics within the four partner institutions who wish to share datasets on which written research outputs are based, this network of institution-based data repositories develops a niche model for deposit of 'orphaned datasets' currently filled neither by centralised subject-domain data archives/centres/grids nor by e-print based institutional repositories (IRs). The project's overall aim is to contribute to new models, workflows and tools for academic data sharing within a complex and dynamic information environment which includes increased emphasis on stewardship of institutional knowledge assets of all types; new technologies for doing e-Research; new research council policies and mandates; and the growth of the Open Access / Open Data movement. Project start date: 2007-03-01. Project end date: 2009-03-31. (Excerpt from this source)

depositmo

The DepositMO project aims to develop an effective culture change mechanism that will embed a deposit culture into the everyday work of researchers and lecturers. The proposal will extend the capabilities of repositories to exploit the familiar desktop and authoring environments of its users. The objective is to turn the repository into an invaluable extension to the researcher's desktop in which the deposit of research outputs becomes an everyday activity. The target desktop software suite is Microsoft Office, which is widely used across many disciplines, to maximise impact and benefit. Targeting both EPrints and DSpace, leveraging SWORD and ORE protocols, DepositMO outputs will support a large number of organisations. The ultimate goal is to change the Modus Operandi of researchers so that repository deposit becomes standard practice across a wide number of disciplines using familiar desktop tools. Project start date: 2010-07-01. Project end date: 2011-06-30. (Excerpt from this source)

digital academic repositories

The Digital Academic Repositories (DARE) programme is a joint initiative of the National Library of the Netherlands (KB), the Dutch universities, the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). DARE's aim is to store the results of all Dutch research in a network of repositories, in which the National Library fulfils the role of safe place in charge of digital preservation. In this way all participants retain responsibility for and control over their own data while making them accessible at the same time. Moreover, as the KB takes responsibility for storage and long-term preservation, the universities can concentrate on their research work. (Excerpt from this source)

digital preservation training programme

This project aims to develop a modular training programme in digital preservation, with class-taught, online and off-line components. It meets the needs identified in the recent JISC-funded study, carried out by Cornwell Management Consultants, into training needs in digital preservation. It builds on existing exemplars of training and information provision, including the NEH-funded Cornell University digital preservation course, the DPC's travelling 1-day workshop, the "Preservation Management of Digital Materials" handbook, and training from existing JISC-funded services such as AHDS. The training will be developed at multiple levels, to meet the needs of senior managers as well as practitioners and new staff. By including self-paced material as well as taught components and group exercises, it will provide information in a way suited to all who might require it. With the backing of the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC), the course can be made available outside the JISC community, bringing in revenue which will aid the long-term sustainability of the project's outputs. Project start date: 2004-10-04. Project end date: 2006-10-03. (Excerpt from this source)

dmtpsych

The aim of this project is to build capacity and skills within psychology postgraduates relating to research data management. The project will build upon existing research data management materials developed by the Digital Curation Centre (DCC) to create discipline-focussed postgraduate training materials that can be embedded into postgraduate research training for the psychological sciences. The materials will consist of: PowerPoint slides to be used in lectures and an associated workbook containing psychology specific guidance on completing the DCC's Data Management Planning Tool (DMPT) (including worked examples), and a copy of the DMPT to be completed by students. The lectures will be structured along the lines of the existing DCC DMPT with the eight key sections forming the centrepiece of six psychology specific lectures of two hours each. Prior to the launch of the training materials the guidance will be transferred to the online DCC Data Management Planning Tool in collaboration with DCC. The training materials will be developed and piloted in the department of psychology at the University of York, in partnership with the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University. Other departments within the psychological sciences will be invited to trial the pilot materials before the official launch. Project start date: 2010-08-01. Project end date: 2011-07-31.
