Research Data Provenance IG

HG

Group details

Status: 
Chair (s): 
Case Statement: 
IG Established
 

Tracking provenance for research data is vital to science and scholarship, providing answers to common questions researchers pose when sharing and exchanging data: Where did it come from? Who modified it? Is this copy the same as the copy I deposited? In what way is it the same? How do I resolve discrepancies or anomalies?

This group focuses on the comparison and evaluation of models for data provenance. It is concerned with questions of data origins, maintenance of identity through the data lifecycle, and how we account for data modification. Objectives of this group include: recommending general and expressive frameworks for documenting research data transactions proposing syntheses of complementary provenance views, and relating data provenance to problems of scientific equivalence and the assessment of data quality.

The Research Data Provenance group anticipates potential intersections with the Data Citation, Data Foundation and Terminology, and Metadata Standards working groups as well as the Data in Context interest group.

Status of and plans for provenance interest group and working group

I've schedued two thirty minute call in meetings to discuss the current status of and plans for the RDA Research Data Provenance Interest Group and the Provenance Patterns Working Group. The first will take place a little under 24 hours from now on July 23 at 12:00 UTC. I hope that time will be convenient for European members and early risers in the eastern half of the US. The second will take place thirteen hours later on July 24 at 1:00 UTC. That time should be better for Oceania and the western half of the US.

We are looking forward to seeing many of you in today's break-out
session of the Working Group on Dynamic Data Citation, which will take

Researching a blockchain based provenance system

Hello everyone,

I am a Graduate student at the University of Amsterdam, and am currently finishing my Master’s degree in Cyber Security. The topic that I am researching is data traceability of satellite data. I work with Airbus to research how viable it is to trace satellite data, as it is processed from raw data (level 0) to usable data (level 3 or 4) that for instance, weather websites use. So at each step of the processing phase, I need to be able to verify that it originated from the previous dataset.
