Outline
Appropriate research data management, especially storing and publishing, has become essential, as the infrastructure to advance open science. However, the information on "how" to manage research data is scarce while the need for research data management has been increasing.

As the main data providers, not only researchers but also research support staff and librarians at universities and institutions, who are expected to take on data management practices, might be bewildered. "They ask me of research data management. But I don't know where to begin."

In this seminar, we will present examples of data repositories and libraries that practice research data management on a daily basis, tools to support research data management, and initiatives to foster human resources responsible for research data management. In addition, during the panel discussion, we would like to discuss the roles of researchers, research support staff, librarians in research data management, and what philosophy and literacy should be shared by all stakeholders regardless of the roles. We hope that each participant will have a better understanding of where to begin.

Abstract
Development of Promotion Organization of Research Data Infrastructure at Nagoya University
(Kimie Takeya)

In December 2019, the Research Data Infrastructure Development Sub-Committee was established under the Nagoya University Research Strategy and Social Collaboration Promotion Subcommittee to promote research data initiatives at Nagoya University. The subcommittee is headed by the Director of Information & Communications, which is responsible for information policies on campus, and is composed of the relevant trustees, the managers and the persons in charge of the following departments: Information and Communications, Information Technology Center, Library, Research Cooperation Department, Academic Research & Industry-Academia-Government Collaboration, Institutional Research. In addition to reporting on the process up to the establishment and management of this subcommittee, I would like also to introduce what activities we have performed as a secretariat.

Research Data Management in Glycoscience
(Issaku Yamada)

The repositories for nucleotide sequences and protein structures were available in the glycoscience community, but no repository for glycan structures. At an international meeting held in 2013 in Dalian, China, clarification of the glycan structure was discussed in glycoscience research. As a result of this meeting, it was agreed that a repository of glycan structures should be constructed and that unique accession numbers be assigned to glycan structures. In August 2014, the international glycan structure repository GlyTouCan was released. Besides, glycan structures are analyzed by mass spectrometry. The data generated at that time is also important, and UniCarb-DR and GlycoPOST have been developed as repositories. UniCarb-DR is a repository for peak lists that analyze mass spectrometry data, and GlycoPOST is a repository for mass spectrometry experimental methods and raw data. In this presentation, I would like to introduce the history of the development of these repositories.

Case Study of Research Data Policy Development in JAEA
(Yui Kumazaki)

The Japan Atomic Energy Agency(JAEA) is preparing a research data policy that defines a policy for the management and open of research data. We conducted some surveys of the current handling and open of research data and interviewed with researchers. In the discussions so far, the following are discussed: (1) prudent judgment is necessary for open due to the characteristics of JAEA’s R&D ; (2) difficulty in establishing a unified policy due to the diversity of R&D fields; and (3) necessity to ensure the quality and reliability of our research data. This time, I would like to introduce the status of these surveys and studies, and consider the management of research data in organizations.

Overview of Research Data Management Service and Introduction of Use Cases
(Yusuke Komiyama)

Currently, research data management (RDM) thinking is a growing demand in academic institutions. National Institute of Informatics (NII) is going to launch the RDM service "GakuNin RDM" as a part of the comprehensive research data infrastructure NII Research Data Cloud since late 2020. In this seminar, I introduce an RDM tool that is needed actually to manage research data at institutions, and also I present use cases in demonstration experiments being carried out at academic institutions across the whole country.

Human Resources Development for Research Data Management and Several Other Approaches on Research Data of JPCOAR
(Kenji Yuki)

In this presentation, I report the activities of JPCOAR: human resources development for research data management (e.g. RDM training materials and JPCOAR seminar) and several other approaches on research data (e.g. Database rescue project, RDM case formation project, JPCOAR Schema, etc.). In addition, I also introduce the activities for research data of other groups : AXIES-RDM Subcommittee and JANUL Open Access Committee.
