Reproducibility IG

Status: 
Recognised & Endorsed

This interest group seeks to advance and enable reproducibility in research based on or producing datasets that require code. Our goals are to build bridges with the many RDA external efforts addressing reproducibility, doing so in coordination with the other RDA Working and Interest Groups where appropriate.

This Group follows the broad definition of reproducibility stated by Turing Way in order to provide an inclusive framework for discussions.

Research Data Architectures in Research Institutions IG

Status: 
Recognised & Endorsed

Introduction

The Research Data Architectures in Research Institutions Interest Group is primarily concerned with technical architectures for managing research data within universities and other multi-disciplinary research institutions. It provides insight into the approaches being taken to the development and operation of such architectures and their success or otherwise in enabling good practice.

Research Data Management in Engineering IG

Status: 
Recognised & Endorsed

Engineering comprises a vast span of sub-disciplines including for example chemical, civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering. Traditionally, engineering disciplines apply scientific knowledge and empirical evidence to finding (innovative) solutions in areas that range from design, creating and building to production of software and innovative materials. Therefore, research in engineering disciplines is highly multi-disciplinary and works in close collaboration with industry.

Research data needs of the Photon and Neutron Science community IG

Status: 
Recognised & Endorsed

Status: Recognized & Endorsed 

This Interest Group will focus on data related issues of science applications associated with large scale source facilities, including: synchrotron x-ray sources, free-electron laser x-ray sources, reactor and spallation neutron sources, muon sources, large electron microscope, NMR and high-powered laser facilities, which are used typically for investigations into the structure of matter at micro or nano scale.

Sensitive Data Interest Group

Sensitive data is increasingly used for research purposes. However, there are a number of barriers which need to be overcome before sensitive data can be fully operationalized in the research context. Chief among these is that not all sensitive data is alike, with significant disciplinary variation in how sensitive data is defined, linked, managed, stored, and reused. Additionally, common approaches to data optimization are not always appropriate for sensitive data, such as the relationship between the FAIR and CARE principles for data management. Nonetheless, sensitive data has significant

Sharing Rewards and Credit (SHARC) IG

SHARC is a recognised and endorsed interest group within RDA (Research Data Alliance).  It is an interdisciplinary group seeking to unpack and improve crediting and rewarding mechanisms for open science activities and in particular, for the data/resources sharing process. It aims to provide guidance for researchers and recommendations to all key actors of the academic recognition ecosystem.

Software Source Code IG

Status: 
Recognised & Endorsed

Software source code plays a critical role in all fields of modern research, where source code is written and developed to address a variety of needs, like cleaning, processing and visualising data.

 

Software source code is a necessary component for research reproducibility and reusability.

Virtual Research Environment IG (VRE-IG)

Status: 
Recognised & Endorsed

The vision of the Research Data Alliance (RDA) is that “researchers and innovators openly sharing data across technologies, disciplines, and countries to address the grand challenges of society.” The Mission of RDA is that it “builds the social and technical bridges that enable open sharing of data.”

Increasingly researchers who are not co-located are seeking to work dynamically together at various scales from the local to global using the internet to share data, models, workflows, best practice, publications, management and administration of their research etc. The Virtual Research Environments Interest Group (VRE-IG) seeks to build the required technical bridges, skills and social communities that enable global sharing and processing of data across technologies, disciplines and countries through the creation of shared online virtual environments. As these individual VREs grow, inevitably they need to also connect with major national research infrastructures.

The goal of the VRE-IG is to identify the technical issues to and - where known - share solutions that enable online access to data required to address issues that can range from local challenges (which are also potentially of direct relevance to researchers in other geographical areas or other research domains), to the research grand challenges currently being faced by society on global issues, e.g., societal impacts of climate change; sustainable cities; and environmentally sensitive utilisation of the scarce resources of our planet.

Working with PIDs in Tools IG

Status: 
Recognised & Endorsed

Lack of interoperability between tools/e-infrastructures presents a significant barrier to streamlining processes throughout the research lifecycle. These gaps prevent the comprehensive collection and incorporation of research data and metadata into the research record captured during the active research phase. Furthermore, it limits the scope for passing this data and metadata on to data repositories, thus undermining FAIR data principles and reproducibility.
