Outline
For promoting open science in Japan, many institutions are making efforts to encourage research data sharing. However, a data management policy, which is a policy for realizing open science, and its operational framework has not been developed completely.

In June 2018, the Cabinet Office established the "Development Guideline of the Data Management Policy for National Research and Development Agency" (temporary translation) with this situation in mind. Not only national research and development agencies but also universities and private companies allocated publicly fund need to develop their own data management policy by the guideline.

The guideline shows the point to develop a research data management and its using policy, and some elements (purpose, definition, limitation, management, metadata, identifier, etc.). Researchers who generate, manage and publish research data on a daily basis and librarians involving in the quality management, distribution, and provision of research data through applying metadata are required to be engaged developing a data management policy actively.

For example, the guideline shows the requirement that research data should keep as possible with the "FAIR Principles" as the international research data management principle. These principles - "Findable," "Accessible," "Interoperable," and "Reusable" - are applicable not only for research data but also for the circulation of scholarly information including principal library services.

In this seminar, we discuss how to develop the data management policy and how to use it in library service with the scope and background of the guideline in mind.

Abstract
An Overview of the Integrated Innovation Strategy and the Aim of the Guideline for the "Development Guideline of the Data Management Policy for National Research and Development Agency"
(Shinichi Akaike, Kazuhiro Hayashi)

Open Science is placed as a main part of development of the "Knowledge base" in the Integrated Innovation Strategy decided by the Cabinet on June 2018. For its practical implementation, governmental research institutions were requested to set their research data policy and the cabinet office released the "Development Guideline of the Data Management Policy for National Research and Development Agency"(temporary translation) for their help. In this presentation, an overview of the Integrated Innovation Strategy and the guideline would be introduced with the background and purpose to encourage discussion to further advance of the utilization of research data.

The Data Policy of National Institute of Environmental Studies, a Step Toward Open Data
(Tomoko Shirai)

The National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES) undertakes a broad range of environmental research in an interdisciplinary and comprehensive manner. NIES has developed and released its open data policy in April, 2017. I will introduce the NIES data policy and how it was developed, as well as some ongoing attempts to promote Open data at NIES.

Collaborative Database Construction in Digital Picture Library for Area Studies
(Yuzo Marukawa, Shun Ishiyama)

“Digital Picture Library for Area Studies” (DiPLAS) is a database that accumulates images photographed by researchers on area studies. The National Museum of Ethnology is promoting the construction of the database DiPLAS, which is the support project for “Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Innovative Areas - Platforms for Advanced Technologies and Research Resources”. In this presentation, we will report on the detail of information system and supports in collaborative database construction works.
