WP35 Data policies and governance: amending the DoW

The idea is to use this page to amend the text for the WP description in the DoW. Please edit this wiki page directly, and use the "insert" and "delete" mark-up to show changes, as illustrated:

Here is some unchanged text.

Objectives

The objectives of this Work Package are to devise a methodology for implementing the data access policy management mechanisms suggested for example in e-IRG Report on Data Management.

Data management is increasingly becoming policy-driven. There are issues like curation/privacy/liability/etc that will need serious consideration and are likely to drive policy, and hence interoperability must consider the propagation of policy. Data policies and governance should also have an in-built vision on how to support structured communities. Also policies defining how to manage data explotion: different policies need to be implemented at different scale (no extra copies after certain stage). The selection of materials for preservation should also be a political decision. The policies should also cover data as a liability, not only an asset. Specific cases will be considered with reference to the policies development. This requires:

  • Governance of Distributed Heterogeneous facilities
  • Interoperability of Data Access Policy Management Mechanisms
  • Interoperability of Data Privacy Environments
  • Interoperability of Legal Environments
  • Interoperability of Data Snapshot/Archive Policy Management Mechanisms
  • Interoperability of Data Curation Policy Management Mechanisms
  • Retention of Policy Management Information

Description of work and role of partners

Task 3510 To identify the stakeholders, bodies and individuals to be contacted, using project connections across Europe, which are responsible and implementing governance and data policies.

Task 3520 To draw up a web-based Questionnaire on governance models and data policies, which will be sent to all stakeholders identified in Task 3510

Task 3530 To collate the results of the survey from across Europe so as to develop scenarios for Governance, interoperability ans retention of policy management mechanisms.

Task 3540 To make recommendations on common governance and data policy management mechanisms to ensure legal and technical interoperability for permanent access to Europe’s digital materials To make guidelines on governance and data policy management mechanisms to enhance interoperability for permanent access to Europe's digital material

Objectives

The objective of this Work Package is to devise a methodology for implementing governance structures and data policies. This will be achieved by surveying current best practices on governance and data policies in a few selected countries in Europe.

Data management is increasingly becoming policy-driven, as noted for example in the e-IRG Report on Data Management. Interoperability issues in data management are important to ensure that the records of science are reachable and useful to other scientific fields enabling cross-disciplinary research. Further, issues like curation/privacy/liability/etc are likely to drive policy, and hence interoperability must consider the propagation of policy.

Description of work and role of partners

Task 3510 To identify the stakeholders, bodies and individuals to be contacted, using project connections, which are responsible and implementing governance and data policies in selected countries.

Task 3520 To draw up a web-based questionnaire on governance models and data policies which will be sent to all stakeholders identified in Task 3510. It is expected that roughly 30% of respondents will answer to the questionnaire, thus the number of potential respondents identified in the Task 3510 must be large enough in order to make justified conclusions based on answers. Further, particular attention will be paid to the questionnaire so that it will be easy to answer in order to increase the response rate. For example, the questions will be formulated such that respondent could answer to those without significant external consultation.

Task 3530 To collate the results of the survey so as to develop possible scenarios for governance, interoperability and retention of policy management mechanisms, based on current practices used in various repositories. This analysis will reveal different mechanism repositories use to get researchers motivated and for example what kind of restrictions or metadata requirements repositories have.

Task 3540 To make preliminary guidelines on governance and data policy management mechanisms to enhance interoperability for permanent access to the records of science.
