Transcript of Linking Research Data

  • Linking Research Data Adrian Burton2010-6-15Go8 Data Sharing Group, Sydney

  • The Australian National Data Service (ANDS)An initiative of the Australian Government being conducted as part of the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) and the Super Science Initiative (via EIF)A collaboration between Monash University, the Australian National University and CSIROOperations nodes in Melbourne, Canberra, and elsewhere

  • The Taskforces central recommendation was that the Australian Government make a declaration of open government. The Rudd Government has accepted this recommendation and we expect to make such a declaration in the coming months Design by Ben Crothers of Catch Media CC BY 2.5Minister for Finance and Deregulation, Australian Government The Hon Lindsay Tanner MP

  • Open Science

  • The underlying flaw that seems to elude journal editors and the scientific community is the need to independently examine the actual data BEFORE publication. Journal editors must adopt a PUBLICATION REQUIREMENT for all authors submitting clinical trial reports if they want to protect the integrity of both the journals and the scientific literature. Authors should be REQUIRED to submit ALL RAW DATA along with their research report.

  • 2. Making data publicFunding guidelines publicly funded research avoid duplicationencourage re-useOpen researchverification of claimsavailable for re-analysisLongitudinal studiesCollaboration, mash-ups, linking data

  • Publishing DataAcknowledgement for the creator/ publisherStable part of scholarly communication

  • 3. What does published mean? Citable, referencable Accessible ReliableContentForm Publicised Claim to primacy and acknowledgement

  • ANDS Register My DataAllows researchers and research organisations to register collections of research dataOnly stores descriptions, not the data itselfYou (the data owner) therefore retain control over access to your data

    Documentation on the ANDS web site at:

  • *Benefits of registering data collections with ANDSGenerates more exposure to your published work: Research Data Australia, NLA, Global Registries, etc.Enables verification of research findings and re-use of valuable research materialsOpen ScienceMultidisciplinary researchAssists with meeting the moral and legal obligations to make research data availableVisibility in Google

  • ANDS Identify my DataAllows researchers or their organisations to allocate persistent identifiers to datasets.


    What happens to the published references to your datasets when your Department changes name?

  • What is a persistent identifier?A URL says where something isProblem if the thing is moved: need to tell everyoneA PID says where to look for where the location of the thing is writtenANDS provides a place to write that locationNow if the thing moves, the PID stays the same, and the location only has to be updated in one place

  • Nuts and BoltsIdentifier = 102.100.100/243ANDS is part of the global Handle infrastructure to resolve persistent identifiers

    DOI for published, citable data.

  • Managing persistent identifiersIf you have a PID, someone has to manage it.ANDS provides the infrastructure for you to update the location informationwhen you move your dataSoftware is not a solution to the human problem

    Introduction to ANDS ServicesContest Winner Excellence in Mashing Created by Know Where You Live (Eric Auld, David Lewis, Simon Wright) datasets used Australian Bureau of Statistics 2006 Census NSW Crime Data Powerhouse Museum Collection (flickr) State Records Office NSW (flickr) State Library of New South Wales Collection (flickr)Know Where You Live is the prototype of a data mashup that displays a range of Australian Government data based on your geographic location along with a Google satellite map and relevant photo from the Powerhouse Museum Collection, the State Records NSW or the State Library of New South Wales collection. The initial prototype was created in under 24 hours as part of the inaugural Govhack event in Canberra in October, 2009.Introduction to ANDS ServicesNow the commissioner has ruled that the university will
