Starting at Ground Zero

This working group, part of the Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) Library and the Ontology Development Group, and winner of the Force11 $1K challenge, will host several working sessions to address reproducibility and scholarship communication. The overall goal is to promote interaction between information scientists and research scientists, and to improve research reproducibility.

 

Session 1: Data management open house - held on 10/09/13

 

At this session, we summarized the Beyond the Pdf2 conference, highlighting aspects of the data-research cycle in which there are issues surrounding research reproducibility and scholarly communication of findings. In addition, we discussed how to develop a data management plan.

 

The presentation is available here.

Session 2: Hands-on data management sessions with OHSU Library Staff

 

Registration required* and space is limited. Participants will receive a $50 gift card.

 

Participants will be asked to bring a yet-to-be published data set and/or publication. During this session, we will do the following:

 

(1) Determine which aspects of the data require standardized metadata for sufficient reporting and reproducibility, e.g. perform data review

 

(2) Determine if there is a public repository would the data be relevant and develop workflow to deposit it there

 

(3) Teach information management strategies - referencing uniquely key aspects of the data or research context, version control, and linking methods and conclusions to these uniquely referenced and versioned aspects of the data

 

(4) Determine requirements for libraries to develop training materials and services to aid researchers in the production of reproducible science and quality data, especially as it pertains to communication of research findings

 

Overall goal is to learn how to promote interaction between information scientists and research scientists, and to improve research reproducibility.

 

*Registration is open for OHSU students, staff and faculty.
