Open for All, Reusable for Whom?: A Review of What Data Reusers Want and How Data Repositories Can Deliver.

Open for All, Reusable for Whom?: A Review of What Data Reusers Want and How Data Repositories Can Deliver

By Ixchel M. Faniel, Lisa Johnston, Katie Wissel

Open Repositories 2021
virtual

Drawing from data reuse studies, we create a feature set to assess how data repositories are meeting data reuse needs. We use our findings to showcase desirable features in use to prototype the design of a reuser-oriented data repository that developers can use to improve their data repository interface.

What researchers need when deciding whether to reuse data: Experiences from three disciplines

What researchers need when deciding whether to reuse data: Experiences from three disciplines

By Ixchel M. Faniel

Research Data Alliance (RDA) 16th Plenary Meeting
virtual

When researchers are deciding whether to reuse data, they need information about data’s context of production from a variety of sources such that data’s quality can be evaluated. This panel presentation compares the different types of context, sources, and data quality attributes quantitative social scientists, zoologists, and archaeologists mentioned needing during interviews and observations about their data reuse.

Identifying Opportunities for Collective Curation During Archaeological Excavations

Identifying Opportunities for Collective Curation During Archaeological Excavations

By Ixchel M. Faniel

15th International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC 2020)
Dublin, Ireland

Archaeological excavations are comprised of interdisciplinary teams that create, manage, and share data as they unearth and analyze material culture. These team-based settings are ripe for collective curation, particularly among the excavation teams responsible for unearthing the materials and the specialists responsible for analysing them. Yet, findings from a study of four excavation sites show specialist data tend to remain unlinked and decontextualized from excavation data. This presentation highlights findings from the study, opportunities identified for collective curation, and responses from the four excavation projects.
