Title:Scientists, institutional repositories and data management practices
Author(s):Donaldson, Devan R.
Subject(s):Institutional repositories
Data curation
Abstract:In this Early Career Development project, Dr. Devan Ray Donaldson will conduct a three-year empirical investigation into the use of data repositories by scientists. The research will investigate how institutional repositories (IRs), data management plans (DMPs), and librarian expertise support the sharing and preservation of research data. The research will expand knowledge about scientists' data needs and practices in domains where attitudes toward data sharing are currently evolving and shifting (e.g., atmospheric science, chemistry, computer science, ecology, and neuroscience). The investigation will inform best practices for librarians who decide which data repositories to recommend to researchers, what features to add to IRs, when to use IRs for handling research data, and when alternative data repositories are more appropriate. This project includes three related studies. Table 1 maps the studies to the research questions, methods, and outcomes. This research is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program (#RE-37-19-0082-19).
