The Global Open Research Commons (GORC) International Model WG works under the umbrella of the GORC IG. NOTE: Earlier versions of the charter refer to Benchmarking - name was changed after discussion with Council.

 

The GORC IG is working on a set of deliverables to support coordination amongst national, pan-national and domain specific organizations such as the European Open Science Cloud, the African Open Science Platform, and the International Virtual Observatory Alliance as they work to build interoperable resources necessary to enable researchers to address societal grand challenges. The realized vision of GORC will provide frictionless access to all research artifacts including, but not limited to: data, publications, software and compute resources; and metadata, vocabulary, and identification services to everyone everywhere, at all times.

 

The GORC IG is working to develop a roadmap for global alignment to help set priorities for Commons development and integration. In support of this roadmap, this International Model WG will collect and curate a set of attributes that will allow Commons developers to compare features across science clouds and commons.

 

When relevant, the WG will also collect information about how existing commons are measuring success, adoption or use of their attributes and services within their organization, such as number or amount of data downloads, contributed software, and similar key performance indicators (KPI) and access statistics.

 

The WG will create and populate a model or framework to describe Commons attributes, but we are not interested in endorsing, certifying or otherwise placing a value judgement on Commons and their features, nor do we intend this to be the only or penultimate model of a Commons.

RDA18 BoF - related session (FAIR Microbiome data)

by Elisha Wood-Charlson

Aloha GORC, I was curious is someone from this working group, especially one of the chairs, would be interested in joining our RDA18 BoF on FAIR Microbiome data, which includes representatives from USA and Australia at the moment. It is during breakout 6, which does unfortunately overlap with the GORC repeat session. More info: https://www.rd-alliance.org/supporting-fair-microbiome-data-harmonizing-...
