UoG policy on data management Draft policy endorses open data and outlines responsibilities of researchers, central services and School/College level support to meet this: “Publicly funded research data are a public good, produced in the public interest, which should be made openly available with as few restrictions as possible in a timely and responsible manner that does not harm intellectual property.”

Links from papers to data UoG policy • “Ensure published results always include information on how to access the supporting data.” Lord Kelvin doesn’t work here now? • Uni encourages inclusion of a dataset reference in papers • Field for this in institutional repository metadata View slide

Metadata advice UoG policy • “Provide sufficient metadata (descriptive information) about the research data to ensure others can discover and, if permissible, reuse it.” View slide

Research data register “Any data which is retained elsewhere, for example in a disciplinary data service should also be registered with the University.” •Title of dataset •Creator/s •Publisher e.g. University of Glasgow •Original Publication URL •Publication Date of dataset

Research data repository “Provide facilities to preserve research data for those cases where disciplinary data centres are not available.” Pilot service based on EPrints 3.3 and using the ReCollect plugin
