Understanding Research Data Repositories as Infrastructures

Ceilyn Boyd

Simmons University, USA

This study discusses the properties of research data repositories and explores metadata about 2,646 entries in the Registry of Research Data Repositories (re3data.org) to identify the characteristics attributed to infrastructures they exhibit. The results reveal how research data repositories function as information infrastructure for scientific community members and contribute to the small body of literature that examines data repositories through a socio-technical lens.

Policies, Procedures, and Decision-Making: Data Managers and the Research Lifecycle

Anthony Million1, Jenny Bossaller2

1University of Michigan, USA; 2University of Missouri, USA

Research data is an asset. Researchers may be required to provide access to their data by scientific funders or aca-demic journals and deposit their data in archives. Managers of archives are guided by principles, policies, and the law when curating and providing access to data. Practices around data storage and access, however, are not always cut and dry; research data managers sometimes need to interpret policies. This paper presents findings from qualita-tive interviews with 15 data managers from 8 repositories in the U.S. These repositories were all affiliated with uni-versities but served varied constituents and provided a range of services. Differences revealed opportunities and chal-lenges in managing data repositories regarding, for instance, who can access data and the level of protection data requires. We also found that data-related policy challenges may stem from any stage of the research lifecycle.

Towards a Taxonomy of Trustworthy Digital Repository Impacts

Devan Donaldson, Samuel Russell

Indiana University, USA

Measuring the societal impact of digital repositories is a wicked problem. To capture information about the impacts of digital repositories that become certified as Trustworthy Digital Repositories (TDRs), a taxonomy describing activities cited as evidence of compliance with TDR standards is needed to relate those activities to socially beneficial outcomes. This paper presents a Minimum Viable Prototype (MVP) for a TDR Impacts taxonomy to enable the expression of their activities in a structured way. Our MVP provides a proof-of-concept that by formalizing concepts about TDRs in a taxonomy, we can investigate ways to measure whether the impacts associated with becoming and remaining a certified TDR are also impacts that generate societal value. Implications of the work described include potential strategies to identify, extract, and/or author machine-readable descriptions of measurable facets of TDR activities and the resulting impacts on communities.
