Improving Reproducibility in Research: The Role of Measurement Science

Date: Mar 12, 2018

Venue: National Physical Laboratory, Hampton Road, Teddington, Middlesex, TW11 0LW

Date: 01 May 2018 - 03 May 2018

We live in a world in which it is increasingly easy to collect enormous amounts of data, in which research frequently spans physical, chemical, and biological sciences. Despite these advances, many scientific research results in recent years have proven to be difficult to reproduce.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together experts from the measurement and wider research communities to understand the issues and to explore how good measurement practice and principles can foster confidence in research findings, including how we can tackle the challenge posed by increasing data volumes in both industry and research. It is important to recognise that there is no process that can entirely eliminate measurement uncertainty, but a good measurement process can lead to an appropriate interpretation of the data. Collecting and reporting the control experiments and systems and the details of and computational process will add confidence to results, improve the efficiency of follow-up studies, and establish a more reasonable basis for conclusions. Such practices can also add to our knowledge in ways that simply reproducing an experiment cannot.

The international network of National Metrology Institutes (NMIs), coordinated by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (Bureau International des Poids et Measures, BIPM), develops novel measurement methods, conducts cross-validation studies, and provides expertise in experiment design and uncertainty analysis and characterisation. By bringing together practitioners from the metrology community with discipline scientists and representatives of scholarly publishers, we hope to establish better awareness and adoption of best practices in measurement.

The workshop organisers intend to produce a report describing the actions the network of NMIs might take moving forward. In this way, we may mitigate the 'reproducibility crisis' and increase confidence in evidence-based decision-making.

CODATA will play a major role in the GO TRAIN Implementation Network

Date: Feb 9, 2018

Reproduced from the GO FAIR website https://www.go-fair.org/2018/02/08/go-fair-training-go-train-kicked-off/ 

 

On 26 January 2018, more than 20 people attended the GO TRAIN kick-off meeting in Leiden (the Netherlands). GO TRAIN is one of three GO FAIR pillars. Hugh Shanahan (Royal Holloway, University of London): “We used the meeting to discuss how to instigate a concerted action of global FAIR data training providers.”

Barend Mons (GO FAIR International Support and Coordination Office, GFISCO): “The High Level Expert Group report on the EOSC mentions an urgent need to educate and equip up to 500,000 data stewards in Europe. The​ ​GO TRAIN​ ​pillar will train individuals that will make the best use of FAIR data and services as well as data stewards that are capable of providing those services. The GFISCO will support and coordinate the GO TRAIN pillar. The guiding principles of GO TRAIN were already drafted at a stakeholder workshop, convened by CODATA in Paris on​ ​3​ ​February​ ​2017″​ (read the workshop report).

Presentations
The January 2018 meeting was entitled ‘Realising GO TRAIN – a concerted action by global data training providers’ and it aimed to establish the scope, specific goals, and foreseen activities of GO TRAIN. In addition, it aimed to define the next steps towards realising one or more formal GO TRAIN Implementation Networks (INs). GO FAIR INs are consortia of individuals, institutions, projects, and international organisations who have decided to jointly implement the FAIR principles in their fields towards the goals of GO FAIR.

The meeting was organised by Hugh Shanahan, Simon Hodson (CODATA), Celia van Gelder (DTL/ELIXIR-NL), and Mascha Jansen (GO FAIR). The meeting featured presentations by Barend Mons (GO FAIR) about the progress of GO FAIR, Hugh Shanahan about the management structure of GO TRAIN, Erik Schultes (GO FAIR) about current FAIR training activities, and Albert Mons (Euretos) about Other People’s Existing Data and Services (OPEDAS Implementation Network). Participants included a.o. representatives of CODATA-RDA Data Schools, DANS, DCC, EDISON, ELIXIR, DTL, and Foster.

Break-outs
Van Gelder: “During a number of break-out sessions, we discussed the overall scope and specific goals of GO TRAIN. In addition, we dedicated some sessions to the future activities of the GO TRAIN Implementation Networks. We discussed what a GO TRAIN IN can and should do to advance training-the-trainer events. And we also talked about an IN’s possible role in the certification or endorsement of training materials and activities.”

Implementation
In the closing session of the day, the participants discussed concrete steps towards the implementation of GO TRAIN. “A number of key decisions were made, in particular the details on GO TRAIN’s three main goals, i.e., developing an appropriate curriculum framework, approaches for endorsing developed materials and organisations teaching the materials, and developing a train-the-trainer programme,” concludes Shanahan.

About GO FAIR
GO FAIR (Global Open FAIR) is a self-governed, community-driven initiative to accelerate the early development of the Internet of FAIR Data and Services. GO FAIR originated in Europe, inspired by the European Commission’s High Level Expert Group on the European Science Cloud (EOSC). GO FAIR will be implemented by three pillars: GO CHANGE, GO BUILD, and GO TRAIN. GO CHANGE aims to instigate cultural change to make the FAIR principles a working standard in science and to reform reward systems to incorporate open science activities; GO BUILD deals with building the technical infrastructure; and GO TRAIN which will provide the training and in the future the mechanism for the standards-compliant certification.

About International Data Week

Co-organized by the ICSU Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA), the ICSU World Data System (WDS) and the Research Data Alliance (RDA), this landmark event will address the theme of ‘The Digital Frontiers of Global Science’. In a hyperconnected world where the internet is pervasive and web technologies are driving major changes in our lives, research has become more than ever before digital and international.  Furthermore, the major societal and scientific challenges facing humanity in this digital age are profoundly global in character, requiring the participation of researchers from all countries and disciplines. The data revolution is also a major source of the scientific opportunities to address these issues but to realise these potentials the frontiers of science, data analysis and stewardship must be advanced.  Likewise, the data revolution must be inclusive, benefitting all,  and harnessing all energies: no parts of the world and no disciplines should be left behind.

The following themes will be encompassed within the conference’s scope:

  • frontier issues for research in a global and digital age;
  • applications, progress and challenges of data intensive research;
  • data infrastructure and enabling practices for international and collaborative research.

Like its predecessor, IDW 2018 will bring together data scientists, researchers from all disciplines, industry leaders, entrepreneurs, policy makers and data stewards.  All areas of research are in scope, including the social sciences, humanities, and business and management sciences. Similarly, the applications of data outside of research will also be considered.  The event will be a rich week of science and data, featuring world renowned keynote speakers, plenary panels and discussions, the presentation of high quality research and practical working sessions for international collaborations.  IDW 2018 combines the 12th RDA Plenary Meeting, the biannual meeting of the research data community, and SciDataCon 2018, the scientific conference addressing the frontiers of data in research.  To a greater degree than at IDW 2016 in Denver, Colorado, the events will be integrated, such that each day will feature an inspiring and engaging range of activities.

Botswana, Africa and the World
The meeting will be held in Gaborone, the capital city of Botswana.  This is an excellent location for this compelling international conference:

The fundamental role of data for research, for economic development and ecological sustainability are recognised as important and are supported by the government, research institutions and community.
The government of Botswana has a strong and forward looking policy to support education, technology, development and research.
Botswana is active and well-integrated in regional (Southern African Development Community: SADC), African and international collaboration in various areas of research and in data activities.
The Botswana university and research sector is advancing greatly as a result of these policies and engagements.
Gaborone is easy to get to, with connecting flights for international participants from Johannesburg (JNB), Nairobi (NBO) and Addis Ababa (ADD), and boasts attractive venues and excellent quality, competitively priced hotels.
Botswana is one of the safest countries in the world according to the Global Peace Index: http://visionofhumanity.org/indexes/global-peace-index/.  Since independence in 1966, Botswana maintained a stable representative democracy, with a consistent record of uninterrupted democratic elections and ranking 35 (out of 176 countries) in the Corruption Perceptions Index 2016 https://www.transparency.org/news/feature/corruption_perceptions_index_2016
Gaborone offers a pleasant location and attractions; in the north of the country, there are unique UNESCO sites for participants who wish to visit before or after the conference.

Enriching my Learning by Helping Others at the CODATA-RDA Research Data Science Schools

Date: Jan 30, 2018

Sara El Jadid has been a student then a helper at the CODATA-RDA Research Data Science Schools #DataTrieste and #DataSaoPaulo.  She has recently blogged about her experience on the Springer Nature Research Data Blog.
 
The CODATA-RDA School for Research Data Science is a valuable and very instructive initiative. The main goal is to provide foundational research data skills to early career researchers, prioritizing those from lower and middle income countries, but not excluding students from other parts of the world. …
 
I consider the experience gained by being involved with the CODATA-RDA Schools for Research Data Science as a very important and helpful step in my career as a young researcher. I am enrolling in a PhD in Bioinformatics - a contemporary and interdisciplinary field  that needs strong skills in "research data science". It's also a field where you have to interact with researchers and scientists from diverse area: biology, statistics, chemistry, physics, informatics to mention a few.

Topic of the Symposium: ‘The critical role of university RDM infrastructure in transforming data to knowledge’

All over the world universities and libraries have started the task of developing research data services. Ideally such initiatives aim to result in a complete service portfolio covering the entire research lifecycle: support in writing proposals and data management plans, repository infrastructures for the storage of data, support in publishing data, assignment of persistent identifiers, lecturing in data management, etc. This broad scope means that such services are often seen as requiring a joint effort from from university, library, IT centre, faculties and other stakeholders.

Nowhere in the world has such a complete support scenario been perfected. It is timely for actors in the various dimensions of such initiatives internationally to share their practical experiences, research and insights.

Please note the range of themes listed below and at http://conference.codata.org/conference/2018_Goettingen_RDM/symposium-themes/

Important Points About Abstract Submissions

  • Proposals for long papers should be 1200-2000 words.

  • Proposals for short papers should be 300-600 words.

  • When submitting a proposal the author should choose the session corresponding to the theme for which the abstract is intended.

  • The programme committee hopes to inform successful papers by mid-January 2018.

Key Dates

Deadline for abstracts: 15 January 2018

Announcement of accepted abstracts and outline programme: end January 2018

Symposium: 18-20 March 2018


Change of Dates: International Data Week 2018 will take place on 5-8 November, in Gaborone, Botswana

Date: Dec 15, 2017

This global data event, coming for the first time to Africa, will now take place on 5-8 November 2018. This decision has been taken in order to avoid clashes with the UN World Data Forum (22-24 October) and the Plenary Meeting of the Group on Earth Observations (31 Oct-1 Nov).  
 
For this global data conference taking place in Africa, which will contain as one of its major themes the issues around data for the sustainable development goals and data for innovation, we felt it was important to avoid the clash with the UN Forum.  Similarly, the use of earth observation and remote sensing data will be an important theme in International Data Week and GEO (including major flagships, the Data Sharing Working Group and AfriGEOSS) is an important partner of the organisers and was a sponsor of the first International Data Week in Denver in 2016.
 
The organisers regret any difficulties this may cause to our community and participants.  However, as we still have 11 months to go before the event, we felt the date could be changed without excessive inconvenience and that it was important to act as good citizens and partners and - to the extent possible - avoid direct competition with related events.
