Repository Platforms for Research Data IG

IG

Group details

Chair(s): 
David Wilcox, Stefan Kramer, Ralph Müller-Pfefferkorn, Robert Downs
Secretariat Liaison: 
Lynn Yarmey
TAB Liaison: 
Helen Glaves
Case Statement: 
 

Institutions, scientists, IT personnel, developers, data archivists and other members of the research data community often have to identify, choose, use, deploy, adapt, enhance, or develop the best possible repository platform to meet particular research data needs. To support that, the original charter of the Repository Platforms for Research Data Interest Group (RPRD IG), formed at RDA Plenary 5 in March 2015, was to "gather and analyze research data use cases in the context of repository platform requirements. The primary deliverable will be a matrix relating use cases with functional requirements for repository platforms."

 

This matrix, along with an accompanying document on how it was created, was finalized and published in Nov. 2016, and can also be found under RDA Supporting Outputs.

 

As of RDA Plenary 9, the RPRD IG's focus is the collection of experiences with selecting, implementing, and using specific research data repository platforms/products across institutions and domains, with reference to the aforementioned functional requirements. From this, the IG may identify potential gaps between needs and solutions in the current research data repository environment, and will seek opportunities to propose the formation of new RDA working groups to address them.

 

The group is open for participation to any RDA member (see the "Join Group" link on this page).
