ROMOR Project Workshop “Research Outputs Management - Basic Level”

Parma, 6-8 September 2017
Intended audience: scholars, repository managers, staff, librarians

 

Research outputs management in a nutshell

This introductory session will provide an overview of reference models that will help to refine the range of services and infrastructure required to effectively manage and preserve access to research outputs. Key terms will be explained and contextualised to provide a solid foundation for the remainder of the workshop.

Learning objectives

After this session participants will:

  • understand what digital curation is and how it relates to research outputs management
  • be familiar with the curation lifecycle model
  • be familiar with the OAIS reference model and how it can be applied to the design of open access information repositories and related services
  • be able to communicate more consistently by ensuring a shared understanding of key terms

 

The common framework used in preparing the introductory workshop is based on the Research Data Management Services as proposed by “The Digital Curation Center”.

 

RDM Policy and Strategy

FOSTER Keywords: Research Data management Policies

 

Developing policies for research outputs management

During this session, participants will consider the range of policies needed to support the management of research outputs within their institutions.

Learning objectives

After this session, participants will:

  • be better able to audit the policies they already have in place and to scope amendments or additional policies needed to support ROM
  • have an understanding of the practical implications associated with implementing and monitoring policy compliance

 

Developing policies for research outputs management: scoping your services

When developing research output management systems, it is important to be clear on who you are developing the systems for, what you want users to be able to do, and how the service will be governed. This session will help participants to think through some of the key issues that need to be addressed before implementing any services.

Learning objectives

After this session, participants will:

  • be able to scope research outputs management (ROM) service provision at their HEIs
  • be able to identify value added services for their repositories
  • be better able to engage in strategic planning
  • have a draft value proposition for their ROM service

 

Sustainability and business planning

This session will consider the longer term sustainability of ROM services and provide an introduction to Business Model Canvas (BMC) as a tool to help develop a longer term business plan.

Learning objectives

By the end of this session, participants will:

  • be able to flesh out a Business Model Canvas (BMC)
  • and to start to develop a business plan to sustain their ROM services.

Data Management Planning

Metadata for Research outputs management Part 1

Learning objectives

By the end of this session participants will:
