Country Reports for National Data Services

23 Jun 2016
Groups audience: 

Hello members of the National Data Services Interest Group,

Kathleen approached us with an idea to develop some "country reports" in
the lead up to the Denver Data Week. I think it is a great idea and I'd
propose we do some initial planning work using this shared folder:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0WOeQjGOwmIQ09CeVY1NUpQREE

Maybe a first stab at a description of what we are planning to do and then
perhaps some templates etc. Anyone feel free to start that work ( I am on
leave for the next couple of weeks).

I would propose a phone hookup to kick this activity off on 26th July at
1pm GMT non daylight savings time or:

Pacific Time 6:00am
Eastern Time 9:00am
GMT (no daylight saving) 1:00pm
London 2:00pm
Brussels 3:00pm
India 6:30pm
Auckland 1:00amAustralian Eastern 11:00pm

Unless any very keen players can't make that time. (apologies Aukland and
Pacific! - we'll share the pain another time)

cheers,

Adrian

    Hi Adrian,

    I talked with Kathleen about this at OR, so RDC is certainly quite interested. I was working on an RDC Working Group to pull this information together to inform the recent efforts in Canada, so working through the RDA NDS IG makes a lot of sense.

    At the OR2016 conference, a number of us discussed a possible project for the NDS Interest Group that might be valuable for the community.

    The suggestion is to prepare an international report of existing national data services containing “country reports”. These reports could be prepared by each country and follow a standardized format. Maybe 2-3 pages? We could aim to have it pulled together for the Denver meeting and present the results there.

    On my part - if you like the idea - I’d be happy to help identify the sections/format (with others) and also provide some editorial support.

    What do you think?

    Yes indeed it will be beneficial for the RDA NDS IG to be able to build on
    your work. That's much appreciated. And hopefully this forum will enable
    that work to go to another level.

    Looking forward to it.

    Cheers

    I agree with all that it is a great idea to have country profiles on
    national data services.
    Will not be able to attend the 26 July call, but would be happy to
    contribute to identifying sectors/format.

    Best,

    Dear Adrian,

    Indeed a great idea. Together with Pedro Principe (also a Portuguese member of the "Country Reports for National Data Services") we would be interested in providing information on the National Report.

     

    Looking foward to the teleconf on the 26th.

    Best

    Dear members of the RDA National Data Services Interest Group,

    Based on our last call and some small group activity, we have come up with a template for the country reports.

    The report template is available in a google doc here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1jT7-mUeH3Kzs0ljr4FoVgoZM7LIbB8ev55ON... and it is also attached as a word document to this message.

    The aim is to document the features and characteristics of emerging data services that are provided at the national level. In general, these types of national services can be defined as somewhat generic. They support research data management across multiple domains and are provided on a national scale (as opposed to discipline-based data centres or services). We recognize that this definition is rather “fuzzy", and that there may be several different services and initiatives in each country that will fit within its scope. We welcome a report from any national initiative.
    The reports will contain high level descriptions of national services being developed in countries around the world. At this stage, we are not looking for too much detail (3-5 pages long).

    We are asking people involved with national data services in their country to complete the reports by September 7, 2016 and send them to Kathleen and Adrian. The first draft of the reports will be shared at the next RDA meeting on September 16, 2016. Based on feedback and recommendations at the September meeting, we will aim to have the second iteration of the reports in October 2016 and we will actively encourage other countries not yet participating to contribute.

    Bob Hanisch has filled out the template for the US National Data Services. Thanks Bob!
    You are welcome to review their report to help guide you in your responses: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Vn9GEWq5GZZh1SYdIfF_SJXTIYxkQIXSF1Yd...

    If you have any questions or comments, please send them to the group or include them as comments in the google document.

    Best, Kathleen

    Hi all,

    In anticipation of the meeting coming up in Denver, can you please let us know if you will be there and are willing to present your report?

    As the reports are in draft, we are interested in both the content of your national report, but also some feedback about the structure/format. Are we missing key pieces of information? Is there too much repetition across different sections? And so on.

    I’d also like to remind you that in many countries there are a number of different services offered at the national level. We’d like to hear about all those different services, and welcome multiple submissions from any given country. This will ensure that we have a more comprehensive picture about what is being offered in the different national contexts.

    I hope the meeting goes well and sorry I won’t be there.

    Best, Kathleen

    Hi Kathleen,
    I'll be at the session and will be happy to present our overview which should be with you tomorrow.
    Kind regards

    Hi all,

    In anticipation of the meeting coming up in Denver, can you please let us know if you will be there and are willing to present your report?

    As the reports are in draft, we are interested in both the content of your national report, but also some feedback about the structure/format. Are we missing key pieces of information? Is there too much repetition across different sections? And so on.

    I’d also like to remind you that in many countries there are a number of different services offered at the national level. We’d like to hear about all those different services, and welcome multiple submissions from any given country. This will ensure that we have a more comprehensive picture about what is being offered in the different national contexts.

    I hope the meeting goes well and sorry I won’t be there.

    Best, Kathleen

    Dear friends,

    I am here in Denver, but unfortunately I have to be heading to the airport during our session next Saturday.

    I have started the report about Spain, but unfortunately there is not much to complete, and I would like to ask some more people in my country. However the template is a great tool for those countries that have intensive “research data services” to think over them, and for those that we are starting on defining the RD services to have models to look at.

    Thanks for a great work!!!

    Best,

    Eva
