New JISC MRD Projects

26 projects, including C4D, have just been announced by JISC under the Managing Research Data Programme 2011-13. The call was funded only by HEFCE so none of the leads are outside England.

Strand A

16 institutional projects to help develop and extend infrastructures for research data management as part of an institutional mission to provide high quality support for research. They will also be developing institutional or departmental research data management policies and guidance materials. Projects will run for 18 months, from October 2011 to March 2013.

  1. A Data Management Infrastructure for Research (ADMIRe) – University of Nottingham
  2. Leeds RoaDMaP (Leeds Research Data Management Pilot) – University of Leeds
  3. Essex Research Data Repository (Essex-RDR) – University of Essex
  4. CERIF for Datasets (C4D) – University of Sunderland
  5. Research360 – University of Bath
  6. Orbital – University of Lincoln
  7. Managing Research Data: a pilot study in Health and Life Sciences – University of the West of England
  8. Data.Bris – University of Bristol
  9. Iridium – Institutional Research Data Management – University of Newcastle
  10. Service Oriented Toolkit for Research Data Management – University Hertfordshire
  11. KAPTUR – University for the Creative Arts
  12. MaDAM into Sustainable Service (MiSS) – University Manchester
  13. Open Up!: Human Factors in Research Data Management – University of Exeter
  14. Data Management Rollout at Oxford (DaMaRO) – University of Oxford
  15. PIMMS – University of Reading
  16. SWORD-ARM – University of York

Strand B

8 projects are helping research groups, projects or departments fulfil disciplinary best practice and the requirements of research funders by implementing data management plans and supporting systems. These projects will run for 6 months from October 2011 to March 2012.

  1. DATUM in Action – Supporting researchers to plan and manage their research data – Northumbria University
  2. History DMP – University of Hull
  3. Data Management Planning and Storage for Psychology (DMSPpsych) – University of Sheffield
  4. Sustainable Management of Digital Music Research Data – Queen Marys, London
  5. Research Data Management for Mechanical Engineering Departments (REDM-MED) – University of Bath
  6. Researchers using Existing Workflows to Archive Research Data – UCL
  7. Rapid Organisation of Health Research Data (ROHRD) Phase 1 – Imperial College, London
  8. MaRDI-Gross: Managing Research Data Infrastructures in big science – University of Lancaster

Strand C

2 projects are customising the Digital Curation Centre’s online data management planning tool for institutional use (contact will be made with these by the SIS-PIP Project – since this is also what the PIP intends to do).

  1. OXFORD DMPonline – University of Oxford
  2. Data Management Planning for Secure Services (DMP- SS) – UCL London

These projects will run for 12 months from October 2011 to September 2012.

These activities will be complemented by work:

D) to improve the practice of data citation and explore innovative ways of publishing research data;

E) to develop disciplinary focused training materials as well as training for other stakeholders, including discipline liaison librarians and research liaison officers.

A Call for Proposals will be released in the New Year for these two areas.

    Wow. An incredible array of projects – is there any thoughts on some sort of conference to share our work and outputs?

  2. October 18, 2011 at 10:02 am

    There will be a Programme Launch workshop on 1-2 December. There will be a programme closing conference in March 2013 (see http://www.jisc.ac.uk/whatwedo/programmes/mrd/rdmevents/mrdinternationalworkshop.aspxfor the equivalent event in the previous Managing Research Data Programme). In all likelihood there will be other workshops as the programme progresses and issues emerge, these are TBC.
