  • Research data must be testable. Science is all about verification and testing. To make data testable, tools used to produce, collect, and examine data during the research must be available. Quite often, however, these data become inaccessible once the work is over and the results being published. Hence, information and the related context must be provided on how research data are preserved and how they can be reproduced. Open Science is the international movement for making scientific research data properly accessible for research community. One of its major goals is building data repositories to foster wide dissemination of open data. The objectives of this research are to examine the features of research data, common repository platforms, and community requests for the purpose of designing functional requirements for research data repositories. To analyze the features of the research data, we use data curation profiles available from the Data Curation Center of the Purdue University, USA. For common repository platforms we examine Fedora Commons, iRODS, DataONE, Dataverse, Open Science Data Cloud (OSDC), and Figshare. We also analyze the requests from research community. To design a technical solution that would meet public needs for data accessibility and sharing, we take the requirements of RDA Repository Interest Group and the requests for the DataNest Community Platform developed by the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI). As a result, we particularize 75 requirement items grouped into 13 categories (metadata; identifiers; authentication and permission management; data access, policy support; publication; submission/ingest/management, data configuration, location; integration, preservation and sustainability, user interface; data and product quality). We hope that functional requirements set down in this study will be of help to organizations that consider deploying or designing data repositories.

  • This research makes the metadata element design for Korean medicine research data management and re-use. Derived metadata elements are verified in research data of Korea Institute of Oriental Medicine. TTAK.K0-10.0976 Standard, DataCite metadata Schema and National Research Data Platform of KISTI were analyzed to derive the metadata elements. Including Identifier, 27 elements were derived as top-level elements with 29 mandatory elements, 13 recommended elements and 31 optional elements. The degree of elements' necessity and new metadata elements were investigated and suggested in the survey by six domain experts in korean medicine field. In this study subject classification for the korean medicine research data are suggested. The final version of metadata schema was tested and verified by comparing with the legacy metadata fields. The research results can be used to describe the Korean medicine research data: items and files.

  • Academic libraries have actively responded to social requirements and changes in scholarly communication system. In recent years, social and scholarly requirements for systematic management and sharing of research data have become apparent. Major countries including U.S., UK and Australia have begun national policies requiring management and sharing of research data from publicly funded R&D projects. This case study identified four academic libraries in the US with active research data support services and analyzed them in terms of how they established dedicated unit and the extent of services in the areas of instruction, consulting and system support. The analysis provides context for academic libraries in Korea in formulating their future research data strategies. The core of the recommendation is primarily concerned with developing instructional services and strengthening library's capabilities for research data management and sharing.

  • In this study, we proposed a method to systematically manage research data in the field of condensed matter physics, which is the most active and interdisciplinary field. In the course of the research, a questionnaire was conducted for researchers in the field of condensed matter physics. The questionnaire was constructed based on the research data management tool Data Asset Framework (DAF) and the FAIR principle for data sharing and reuse. The current status of research data management in the field of aggregated material physics was collected from 14 researchers. The collected data consisted of data on the characteristics and basic information of researchers who answered the questionnaire, data preservation and management, and data sharing and access. By analyzing the collected questionnaire results, nine problems were drawn about the characteristics of research data in the field of aggregate material physics, data collection and production, data preservation and management, data sharing and access. In this study, suggestions were made to improve the problems derived from each aspect.

  • This study aims to propose improvement plans of the Humanities and Social Sciences research data archives in Korea. For this purpose, literature reviews were conducted to prove the importance of the Humanities and Social Sciences research data and establish a theoretical basis for the concept and requirements of data archives. In addition, analysis of the Korean Research Memory (KRM), case surveys for a total of 9 domestic and international archives, and in-depth interviews with a total of 10 researchers in the field of the Humanities and Social Sciences were conducted as well. As for the improvement of the Humanities and Social Sciences research data archives in Korea, establishing a cooperative system between the National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF) and the field of the Humanities and Social Sciences was proposed first for data archives of each project. Secondly, a conceptual model of research data archives was designed in such a way that the archives would perform according to a life cycle of research data in the cooperative system, all based on data curation.

  • Dokdo research has been worked in various fields. However, the continuous accumulation and systematic management of Dokdo research data on marine science haven't been made. In particular, a systematic database system hasn't been established for the research data on marine environment and ecosystem in Dokdo and its surrounding sea. Therefore, GIS database construction on a spatial basis is required for the systematic management and efficient use of Dokdo marine research data, and a marine data model on a GIS basis is needed on the design stage to build the database. In this study, we collected previous observed marine data, and classified them as three groups, such as a framework data group on a GIS basis, a research data group and a thematic data group, according to the data types and characteristics. Moreover, the attributes of each research data were designed to be connected to GIS framework data. The result of the study to build an integrated GIS data model may be useful for developing a management system for marine research data observed in other sea as well as Dokdo.

  • In this paper, we propose CANVAS (Creative ANalytics enVironment And System), an analytics system of the National Research Data Platform (DataON). CANVAS is a personalized analytics cloud service for researchers who need computing resources and tools for research data analysis. CANVAS is designed in consideration of scalability based on micro-services architecture and was built on top of open-source software such as eGovernment Standard framework (Spring framework), Kubernetes, and JupyterLab. The built system provides personalized analytics environments to multiple users, enabling high-speed and large-capacity analysis by utilizing high-performance cloud infrastructure (CPU/GPU). More specifically, modeling and processing data is possible in JupyterLab or GUI workflow environment. Since CANVAS shares data with DataON, the research data registered by users or downloaded data can be directly processed in the CANVAS. As a result, CANVAS enhances the convenience of data analysis for users in DataON and contributes to the sharing and utilization of research data.

  • This study aims to propose an extended OAK metadata for research data that would be described in OAK, an open access repository of the National Library of Korea. As a research method, literature review, case studies, and interviews with related parties were conducted. The method of extending the existing OAK metadata for research data was derived as follows. First, in modeling for research data, the structure of the collection> item> file is maintained, the collection is placed as a higher group to which the research data can be grouped, and item was combined metadata and files or digital objects of various formats together. Second, by mapping the metadata standard and case organizations with the existing OAK metadata, elements judged to need to be extended to OAK for research data were selected and reflected in the existing OAK. Third, the controlled vocabulary and syntax are also proposed so that it can be used for search or later statistics through structured data. By expanding the OAK metadata to describe research data, research data produced in Korea can be officially stored and used, which is the basis for preventing duplication of research and sharing and recycling research results nationally.

  • In recent years, countries such as USA, United Kingdom and Australia have begun to implement national policies in order to systematically manage and share research data produced through publicly funded research. However, Korea as of yet does not have a coordinated research data policy. The lack of infrastructure that supports the sharing and preserving research data results in the poor management and loss of valuable data produced from significant national R&D investments. The need for research data collection, management and sharing goes beyond the outcome assessment of national research: it facilitates the diffusion of research impact and economic development. There is a growing recognition that data sharing is an essential element of research ethics. This research investigates the relevant research data policies and methods of governance at the national level using a case study analysis. United Kingdom was selected as a case study target as it shows a wide variety of policy examples and instruments. In particular, this research focuses on the UK's national legal framework for research data sharing, analyzes the RCUK (Research Councils UK)'s data policies, activities at the seven research councils under RCUK as well as several supporting institutions. Based on the analyses, this research offers a national roadmap for better managing and sharing of research data in Korea.

  • The purpose of this study was to investigate factors affecting the sharing of research data of science and technology researchers. Data was collected through a survey of 198 science and technology researchers. Independent variables in this study included perception, openness in communication, collaboration, and trust. Latent variable was selected as reward system and dependent variable was research data sharing. The results of analysis of structural equation modeling showed that perception were found to have a positive impact on reward system for data sharing for research. Other factors such as trust, openness in communication and collaboration were not statistically significant in their affect on reward system for data sharing. Finally, reward system was identified as the influential factor on research data sharing.
