The European Commission published a new Recommendation on Access to, and Preservation of, Scientific Information on 25 April, to promote the transition to open science in the European Union. The recommendation provides guidance on incentives for openness; research data management; text and data mining; and technical standards for the re-use of research content. The European Commission published a roadmap for the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) 14 March 2018. The EOSC is a “pan-European federation of research data infrastructures, with a view to moving from the current fragmentation, to a situation where data is easy to store, find, share and re-use.”
10 Datasets now available in Library ResData repository for preserving and sharing EUI research data outputsBy Thomas Bourke on December 10, 2017
The Library has completed the beta test phase of the new ResData repository infrastructure. Ten EUI-generated datasets are now available for open data sharing. There are over 50 sub-sets. EUI members from all departments and centres are encouraged to submit research data outputs for preservation in the multi-disciplinary ResData repository. The new repository is compliant with the open data mandates of EU Horizon 2020 and other international science funding programmes. The EUI Library offers specialist advice regarding the preparation of data for reposit, data protection and data copyright – which helps EUI members determine if, and when, their data is suitable for open data sharing with, or without, embargo.
EUI members can now submit their research datasets for inclusion in the EUI ResData repository – a solution for sharing and archiving EUI research data outputs. Library staff provide advice on dataset tagging (metadata), formats, structure and whether data should be archived under embargo, or made available as open data. The first step is to complete the online form – providing details about the dataset for reposit. The Library will then make an appointment for data transfer. Full details.
The Research Data Alliance (Europe) hosts a two-day workshop on research data management and open data on 14-15 November. Sessions are live-streamed from the Università di Firenze. The workshop is organised in collaboration with the universities of Bologna, Milano, Parma, Torino and Trento with the support of the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Associazione italiana per la promozione della scienza aperta and OpenAIRE. The workshop brings together researchers, data managers and librarians to share experiences regarding the discovery, management, elaboration, re-use, and reproducibility of research data. The EUI Library is represented at the workshop.
Today’s half-day roundtable on Open Access publishing – journals, books and reality at the EUI contained the following presentations and interventions. This post is made available today in order to give access to them immediately. Notes and some comments may be added later on. Pep Torn, EUI Library Director, welcomes keynote speakers and gives and […]
Zenodo – the open data repository service maintained by CERN – announced the abolition of the 2GB file size limit on 13 September. The repository now accepts files of up to 50GB. The EUI Library has created an EUI data community in Zenodo. EUI members can submit data for inclusion by writing to [email protected]
