The 1st SPARC Japan Seminar 2017
"A New Relation Between Librarians and Researchers:
From a Viewpoint of Management and Distribution of Research Data"
Date&Time September 13, 2017 / 13:00-17:20
Place National Institute of Informatics, 19F 1901-1903 Conference Room
Co-host Research Data Utilization Forum
Cooperation Japan Consortium for Open Access Repository (Japanese)

Outline
Institutional repository in Japan is unprecedently growing, and the number becomes over 700 at minimum. It has been playing an important role to collect, organize, preserve, and disseminate academic information that are generated through education and research activities in university. Although open science has been promoted by institutional repositories, for its further promotion, we need to construct a similar repository system for research data.

In July 2016, Japan Consortium for Open Access Repository (JPCOAR) was founded to support institutional repository in Japan. JPCOAR is expected to develop “open access repository” to manage and distribute research data. For efficient operation of open access repository, it is needed for librarians to understand how to manage research data that have been unfamiliar to them and how to help researchers utilize research data repositories. It is also needed for researchers to understand that openness of research data adds a new value to them and to aim at active and spontaneous utilization of research data repository through close collaboration with librarians.

In recognition of the above, this seminar intends that librarians and researchers share a common point of view about management and distribution of research data. The seminar will lead attendees to consider a new relation between them.

Abstract
Positioning of Research Data and the Expectations for University Strategy on Data Management
(Keiko Kurata)

Researchers´ practices and perception on data use and open data is complex. Typical examples are the following statement; "it is My data", "it is useless for making only data open", "researchers who have skill and knowledge can understand the meaning by looking only data." These statements are not able to understand with simple dichotomy between open position or restricted position. Research data is embedded within the research lifecycle, does not have final form, in compared with published articles which confirmed the research results. This lecture introduces the complex position of researchers’ perception on data use and open data, and reports the results of survey on research data management in Japanese universities. Finally, the direction of which universities should aim is considered.

Scholarly Repository as a Bridge Between Researchers and Librarians
(Takeshi Osawa)

The most important job duty of academic researcher is publication. After published, researcher wish for increasing citation on that. Scholarly repository could enhance that, thus, that have large benefit for researchers. However, at the same time, operating repository require both human and budget resources. Together with researchers and librarians, we should establish a mechanism which have a return each other. In this talk I would like to take a current status on researcher, problems and take an idea for collaboration with librarians.

Institutional Support for Research Data Management and the Role of Libraries
(Yui Nishizono)

There is growing interest in proper research data management throughout the research process, mainly in the context of promotion of open science and research integrity. In order to promote proper research data management, in addition to researchers themselves, research supporters have to acquire knowledge and skills related to research data management and provide institutional support in many ways. The JPCOAR Research Data Task Force is working on the development of learning materials related to research data management. In this presentation, I will introduce these learning materials and how to utilize them, and describe the possibilities of future librarian roles.

The Role of JPCOAR Schema in Future Scholarly Communication
(Tomoko Kataoka)

In recent years, open access to publicly funded research and related data is being promoted by funding agencies and government policy. To promote the discovery and utilization of published research, standardized metadata exchange format corresponding to new academic resources, such as research data, and international scholarly communication is required. JPCOAR has revised junii2, which is the metadata exchange format of the institutional repository, and established JPCOAR schema to fulfill this societal need. I will introduce the role of JPCOAR Schema in future scholarly communication.

Introduction of Research Data Utilization Forum (RDUF)
(Hideaki Takeda)

Research Data Utilization Forum (RDUF) is the community for people who commit research data sharing and research open data. It is founded by Japan Link Center (JaLC). RDUF starts a new program called Sub Committee where a specific topic is to be discussed in a sub committee. We are now calling proposals for Sub Committee.
