The results of ODE provide a comprehensive overview of data sharing today and shed new light on the future challenge of data sharing. This resulted in detailed recommendations for the individual stakeholders involved in data sharing, but also overall topics that need to be addressed in order to develop data sharing in Europe and beyond, and can inform policies and approaches in Horizon2020. These are summarised in this document

This report sets out the current thinking on data citation best practice and presents the results of a survey of librarians asking how new support roles could and should be developed.

The ODE Conceptual Model has been developed within the Project to characterise the process of data sharing and the factors which give rise to variations in data sharing for different parties involved. Within the overall Conceptual Model there can be identified models of process, of context, and of drivers, barriers and enablers. The Conceptual Model has been evolved on the basis of existing knowledge and expertise, and draws on research conducted both outside of the ODE Project and in earlier stages of the Project itself.

As the part of its mission of identifying, collating, interpreting and delivering evidence of emerging best practices in sharing, re-using, preserving and citing data, and documenting drivers of change and the barriers impeding progress this report is an important first step.

It is a collection of success stories and lessons learned in the area of data sharing, re-use and preservation. These use cases outline the state of play in this dynamic area, and are meant to help stakeholders appreciate the vast potential for innovation as well as barriers to success in the field.

These ten tales, selected by the Opportunities for Data Exchange (ODE) project, are based on personal interviews with leaders in scientific communities, research infrastructures, management and policy initiatives.

These unique perspectives look at data sharing from many angles, and provide fresh, first-hand accounts of experience and involvement in the following areas:

  • Leading-edge scientific research
  • Funding policy
  • Coordination of large-scale e-infrastructures
  • Researcher access to e-infrastructures
  • Extending data infrastructures to meet the needs of the modern classroom.

Scholarly communication is the foundation of modern research where empirical evidence is interpreted and communicated as published hypothesis driven research.  Many current and recent reports highlight the impact of advancing technology on modern research and consequences this has on scholarly communication.  As part of the ODE project this report sought to coalesce current though and opinions from numerous and diverse sources to reveal opportunities for supporting a more connected and integrated scholarly record.  Four perspectives were considered, those of the Researcher who generates or reuses primary data, Publishers who provide the mechanisms to communicate research activities and Libraries & Data enters who maintain and preserve the evidence that underpins scholarly communication and the published record.  This report finds the landscape fragmented and complex where competing interests can sometimes confuse and confound requirements, needs and expectations. Equally the report identifies clear opportunity for all stakeholders to directly enable a more joined up and vital scholarly record of modern research.

To gain a broad and common understanding the ODE project collected 21 stories, in which significant stakeholders describe their experiences and their view on the topic. The focus is on the following four perspectives: scientific communities, infrastructure initiatives (e. g. data centres and data repositories), management (e. g. funding agencies and policy makers) and other relevant stakeholders (e. g. citizen science projects). This report provides an introduction, documents the stories and combines the key barriers and drivers for the permanent access to research data.
