Digital curation [clear filter]
Sunday, April 17
 

1:30pm

Innovations in Curation
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Data are being generated at unprecedented rates, while research budgets are flat or declining in many countries. The research community must find more efficient models for storing, organizing, and accessing data. For a typical data resource, maintaining data is only a fraction of the total cost of data management. The larger cost is associated with finding, accessing, interoperating, and reusing (FAIR) the data—a cost widely underappreciated. Hence, this workshop will examine the importance, impact, and innovation in the field of data curation for digital ecosystems.

Topics to be addressed include: developing consistency among standards, tools, protocols; improving accuracy of text mining; integrating curation into research, publishing, reviewing workflows and laboratory information systems; existing “gold standard” curation vs alternative methods, e.g., crowdsourcing, automation. What are concrete examples where curation has added value and lack of curation has been disastrous? Do we have metrics to evaluate success? Additionally, the training and role of professional curators will be discussed. This workshop will draw upon all key stakeholders—curation practitioners and researchers, data users and reusers, publishers, funders, resource providers. The goal is to promote innovation in curation by gaining an understanding of pain points and opportunities along the data lifecycle.

Putting the Force11 FAIR principles into practice: a community curation of SHARE (part 1)
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

You are also encouraged to participate in the evening 'curate-a-thon.'

SHARE’s data set of research and scholarly activities throughout their lifecycle is free, openly licensed, and built with open source technology developed at the Center for Open Science (COS). Launched in beta in April 2015 the data set has grown to over 4 million records and 80+ providers, including CrossRef, PubMedCentral, DataOne, library institutional repositories and more. This infrastructure will contribute to a “network of knowledge” that links research objects (e.g., workflows, publications, funding information, data sets) that will enable better stewardship of this work, verification of claims, meta-scholarship, and the discoverability and reuse of these research objects. 

SHARE is committed to openness, transparency, inclusive collaboration, and international interoperability. To make the most use of the data SHARE is aggregating, community involvement and contribution is essential to enhance the highly variable metadata associated with scholarly and research activity, to link objects together as part of the same activity, and in the process to promote innovative scholarship and a range of outputs beyond traditional publications.

This half day workshop will focus on (1) SHARE metadata curation and enhancement needs and priorities as they relate to the FAIR data principles, and (2) Force11 community needs for the SHARE data set. This is a hands-on workshop and attendees are encouraged to bring laptops to follow along.

Join us for curate-a-thon that will give participants the opportunity to directly contribute to enriching the SHARE dataset and implement many of the metadata priorities discussed in the first half of the day. Participants will learn how to access data using API’s, integrate information and datasets using IPython/Jupyter and other tools, and create links between related digital objects.
