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.

Designing, Timing, and Determining the Feasibility of Curatorial Interventions to Support Data Reuse

By Elizabeth Yakel, Sarah Whitcher Kansa

Yakel highlights findings from a case study, including data creation and selection practices that negatively influenced other stages of the data lifecycle and the curatorial interventions that mitigated these practices to create a more positive data reuse experience. Kansa discusses implications the findings have on the design, timing, and feasibility of curatorial interventions during a data’s lifecycle.
