Outline
It seems that many universities and research institutes are considering to start managing and publishing research data; however, there is a number of issues to be addressed before starting these.
In this seminar, we will have an opportunity to listen to actual examples and best practices of managing and publishing research data in Japan and abroad, the evaluation methods, and how to utilise platforms such as GakuNin RDM and J-Stage Data.
We hope that this seminar will help you to manage and publish your research data.

Abstract
Data Publishing on a Data Repository J-STAGE Data
(Takafumi Kato)

The Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) started its pilot operation of J-STAGE Data, a data repository for J-STAGE users, in March 2020, and is planning to move to its full-scale operation in March 2021.The lecturer will introduce the overview of J-STAGE Dada service and the current status of its pilot operation.

Best Practices from the Provider's Viewpoint for a Nationwide Research Data Management Service
(Yusuke Komiyama)

If researchers manage their research data independently, there is a risk that valuable research data may be lost or missing in the laboratory or that classified research data may be lost to the outside and leak out. Also, if the institution to which the researcher belongs does not have a well-organized research data management system, it may become a hotbed of research misconduct. Recently, an increasing number of competitively granted research projects require research data management based on a data management plan. The National Institute of Informatics (NII) has started the full-scale operation of GakuNin RDM, a research data management service, for academic institutions in Japan from 2021. In this presentation, I will discuss realistic best practices based on actual research data management cases from the viewpoint of a provider of a nationwide research data management service.

How do I get started with RDM services? (Examples in Europe)
(Nobutake Kamiya)

When you are starting the RDM service, it is very helpful to refer to the examples from other institutions. In this talk I will look at the case study of the DDC’s “RDM strategy: moving from plans to action" and focus on the example of the University of Edinburgh. I will also introduce the self-assessment tool provided by SparcEurope (based on the Research Infrastructure Self Evaluation (RISE) framework), which should be useful for the further development of RDM services.

Exploring current issues for the practice of research data publishing: A case study of Hokkaido University
(Ayako Mikami)

Support system for research data publishing is not well developed yet in universities in Japan. For a development support system that reflects with intention of researchers, accumulation of practical examples of research data publishing and analyzing them will be necessary, however, only a few examples of universities in Japan are presented until now. In this presentation, I would like to introduce the background of the researcher's request and practice of institutional repository section for 14 research data publishing cases whose data are published on the repository of Hokkaido University (HUSCAP) from 2017 to 2020. In addition, I would like to find out points that are insufficient yet and to be improved in the current management of institutional repository by considering these cases based on discussions so far about research data publishing.

"COAR Community Framework for Good Practices in Repositories" and "Survey on the Status of Research Data Management Efforts at Japanese Institutions"
(Michiyo Yasuhara)

In October 2020, the Confederation of Open Access Repositories (COAR) published the "COAR Community Framework for Good Practices in Repositories". JPCOAR created a Japanese translation of this framework and published it on its website in December 2020. In this presentation, the lecturer will explain the outline of this framework and introduce the "Survey on the status of RDM efforts at Japanese universities and research institutions", which was conducted in collaboration with the RDM Case Study Project of the JPCOAR Research Data Working Group and the AXIS-RDM Subcommittee in 2020.
