CODATA/RDA Summer School in Data Science and Cloud Computing in the Developing World WG Recommendations

By Hugh Shanahan

The CODATA/RDA Summer School in Data Science and Cloud Computing in the Developing World WG provides a framework to run a series of Summer Schools in Data Science and data sharing in low and middle income countries (LMICs) with the goal of addressing the gap in research data science skills that stops researchers from reaping the benefits of the data revolution.


Matrix of use cases and functional requirements for research data repository platforms

By Stefan Kramer

The matrix describes the functional requirements identified for research data repository platforms. The functional requirements are based on eleven use cases that describe their requirements for digital repository platforms. The matrix provides a description for forty-four requirements and, for each one, provides a functional requirement score that is based on the use cases. Functional requirements of greater importance are identified with higher functional requirement scores. The functional requirement scores can be used to assess research data repository platforms and to prioritize functional requirements for development and adoption.


Sustainable Business Models for Brokering Middleware to support Research Interoperability

By Stefano Nativi

The Brokering Governance Recommendation discusses the strengths and weakness of different models in the context of long-term sustainment of brokering middleware. Examination of alternatives leads to a prioritization among models with the recognition that no single model by itself is likely to provide the desired sustainment. The analysis suggests that a hybridized model incorporating aspects of three different business models over the lifespan of the brokering middleware, i.e. federally funded data facility guardianship in the establishment stage replaced or supported by a Consortium model and/or Software-as-a- Service as the broker matures, will likely provide the strongest model for sustainment.


Data Description Registry Interoperability Model

By Amir Aryani

Data Description Registry Interoperability WG is working on a series of bi-lateral information exchange projects and an open, extensible, and flexible cross-platform research data discovery software solutions. Research Data Switchboard is a collaborative project by the members of the DDRI WG. This project leverages DataCite DOI, ORCID and other persistent identifiers, and uses simple but effective research graph technology to link datasets.


RDA/WDS Publishing Data Workflows WG Recommendations

By Suenje Dallmeier-Tiessen

Workflows that enable persistence, quality control and access are all crucial to enhance the possibilities for greater discoverability as well as efficient and reliable reuse of research data. Such workflows for data publishing are at the core of this analysis and working group.
