Matrix of use cases and functional requirements for research data repository platforms

By Stefan Kramer


Repository Platforms for Research Data Interest Group

Supporting Output Title: Matrix of use cases and functional requirements for research data repository platforms

Impact: Based on use cases, the matrix describes forty-four functional requirements identified for research data repository platforms and provides a score identifying relative importance. These functional requirement scores can be used to assess research data repository platforms and to prioritize functional requirements for development and adoption.

Summary

The matrix describes the functional requirements identified for research data repository platforms. The functional requirements are based on eleven use cases that describe their requirements for digital repository platforms. The matrix provides a description for forty-four requirements and, for each one, provides a functional requirement score that is based on the use cases. Functional requirements of greater importance are identified with higher functional requirement scores. The functional requirement scores can be used to assess research data repository platforms and to prioritize functional requirements for development and adoption.

See "The Matrix" sheet/tab of the Excel worksheet for the actual matrix, and the accompanying document "The development of the matrix of use cases and functional requirements for research data repository platforms" (PDF file) for explanation of how it was created.

    Hi,

    I am conducting an evaluation for finding a research repository solution for a research firm. I would like to know if there is any update on the functional requirements or the score assigned to the functional requirements for identifying research data platforms?

    Hi, I was one of the co-creators of that matrix and co-chairs of the interest group at the time - I'm not aware that it was updated later, but the current co-chairs (listed on this page) might know something different.
