Dear All,
Here is the meeting notes from the task force "Best Practices for Data
Discovery". Your comments are all welcome.
*Date: 14 Feb. 2017 (3rd meeting)*
*Participates:William Michener, UNM (WM)Anita de Waard, Elsevier (AdW)Siri
Jodha Khalsa, NSIDC (SJK)Mingfang Wu, ANDS (MFW)Action: - Data Provider: -
Consolidate the document
,
add more references (WM, NA)- Ask a couple of data providers to comment on
the document (MFW)- Data Repository:- Enrich the document

with examples from repositories (MFW)- Review and comment on the document
(Siri and WM) - Data Seeker:- Reach out to librarians and ask them to
either be involved or comment on the document

(WM and ALL). Discussion Notes:Data Providers: - Bill and Natalia have
combined the two lists, will add some references. - Anita will check with
people external to this group (especially some involved in Fair Data
Principles) and people from other relevant RDA IGs to comment on the
document, with the focus on the role of data providers.- Would be good to
get feedback from data providers.Data Repository: - MFW took a list of data
repositories from Anita, did an (ongoing) environmental scanning of what
services are provided by each data repository, and recorded them in this
spreadsheet
.
- It is good to share the spreadsheet to data repository operators to get
their input, or send survey based on the spreadsheet to data repositories
for their input. It’s agreed it is better to do this activity after the
next plenary. Data provider - A question was raised: Who would use this and
when? Answer could be fresh graduates and librarians who provide research
skill training to early career researchers on how to find research data.
We could reach out to people from a RDA interest group “Libraries for
Research Data” IG or someones who are going to attend the international
digital curation conference next week. *

    Reading through the draft document - noticed it did does not seem to reflect or be fully aware of the DCIP Repositories Roadmap requirements from FORCE11, which are relevant.
    http://biorxiv.org/content/early/2016/12/28/097196
    These are currently being coordinated with schema.org and Google, as well as with EMBL-EBI, bioCADDIE / DataMed, and others. You should expect a revised version in bioRXiv within a month to reflect some recent tweaks for slightly better schema.org alignment. But the current version is very-near-final.
    I will try to keep this group abreast of any changes but please do read it if you have not already. I recommend a link or reference to this document from your draft if possible.
    All best
    Tim

    Dear Tim,
    Thanks for reading the documents and pointing to the relevant DCIP recommendations. When we elaborate on each dot points from the "Best practice for data repository", especially for the point "make records easily indexed and found by the major search engines" and the point "follow standards to enable interoperability with other data repositories", we will refer the paper and discuss schema.org.
    Regards,
    Ming
