Diamonds are forever. What about research data?

Dr Adam Farquhar, Head of Digital Scholarship at the British Library

In this talk, I’ll highlight some of the goals and challenges around holding research data for the longer term. We’ll consider what comes after there is robust long-term storage for the bits. There are fracture lines in the scholarly record where the evidence base for results reported in articles neatly fits. We’ll look at ways to close these gaps. Even the best current practices leave enormous challenges for future data re-use. We’ll look at recent technical developments that may help researchers without radically changing their workflows. Emerging infrastructure promises to help researchers get appropriate credit for the additional work that they do to make data re-usable now and in the future. We’ll review some key international developments.
