What's Next for Data Sharing?

The development of solutions that preserve and unlock research data for discovery and creative reuse is a key tenet of the SHARE project. This is consistent with a push for wider data accessibility led by research funders, the academy, and other stakeholders.  But what technical, policy, and attitudinal developments are impacting the availability and reuse of research data? In this session, three experts will provide insights into where we are and where we are headed in the data sharing realm.

SHARE is a higher education and research community initiative to ensure the preservation of, access to, and reuse of research outputs. SHARE aims to make the inventory of research assets more discoverable and more accessible, and to enable the research community to build upon these assets in creative and productive ways.

 
 

Declarations of Support for SHARE

SHARE is a higher education and research community initiative to ensure the preservation of, access to, and reuse of research outputs. We are pleased that a wide array of stakeholders, including the following organizations, endorse these goals.

 
   

SHARE Launches Monthly E-Newsletter—Sign Up and Share

share-update-screenshotSHARE Update
(June 2014)
We are pleased to publish the inaugural issue of the SHARE Update. As you may know, SHARE (SHared Access Research Ecosystem) is a higher education and research community initiative to ensure the preservation of, access to, and reuse of research outputs. The monthly e-newsletter is designed to provide stakeholders and other interested individuals with updates on our progress. The newsletter is also designed to make it easier for you to engage your own community—librarians, campus administrators, faculty, and others—to help them get a better sense of how SHARE can add structure and clarity to the research ecosystem.

The first issue of the SHARE Update includes an introduction by ARL executive director Elliott Shore, a roundup of what’s new and what’s next, and pointers to a few useful resources for learning more about SHARE.

Please subscribe to the SHARE Update and share (pun intended) it with anyone who might be interested.

SHARE Notification Service Architectural Overview

The SHARE notification service will gather information about research release events through both a direct push protocol and a harvest strategy. The service will then notify consumers of these events through free subscriptions to predefined channels of notices and by allowing searches of its digest of research release events. The notification service is only the first step along the road to SHARE's long-term vision of a robust repository ecosystem for research output. This document describes the notification service in detail.

Rebecca Kennison Named Visiting Program Officer for SHARE

Rebecca KennisonRebecca KennisonARL has appointed Rebecca Kennison, Director of Columbia University Libraries’ Center for Digital Research and Scholarship, as a visiting program officer to help develop the SHared Access Research Ecosystem (SHARE). SHARE is a joint initiative of ARL, the Association of American Universities (AAU), and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) to collaboratively build a cross-institutional coordination framework for the long-term management and preservation of—and expansion of access to—the results of academic research. The initiative was made urgent by the February 22, 2013, memorandum from the US Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) directing federal agencies to develop draft plans for the public deposit of research articles and data sets associated with federal funding.

Higher Ed Associations Form Joint Steering Group to Build Federated System for Publicly Funded Research

image © Niklas WikströmThe Association of Research Libraries (ARL), the Association of American Universities (AAU), and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) today announced the formation of a joint steering group to advance a proposed network of digital repositories at universities, libraries, and other research institutions across the US that will provide long-term public access to federally funded research articles and data.

 
 

SHared Access Research Ecosystem (SHARE) Proposal

The Association of American Universities (AAU), the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU), and ARL have drafted a proposal in response to the OSTP memo: The SHared Access Research Ecosystem (SHARE).

pdf share-proposal-07june13.pdf

The proposal begins:

Research universities are long-lived and are mission-driven to generate, make accessible, and preserve over time new knowledge and understanding. Research universities collectively have the assets needed for a national solution for enhanced public access to federally funded research output. As the principal producers of the resources that are to be made publicly available under the new White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP)[1] memorandum, and that are critical to the continuing success of higher education in the United States, universities have invested in the infrastructure, tools, and services necessary to provide effective and efficient access to their research and scholarship. The new White House directive provides a compelling reason to integrate higher education’s investments to date into a system of cross-institutional digital repositories that will be known as SHared Access Research Ecosystem (SHARE)...
