• Understand aspects of the nature of research data in the visual arts.
• Recognise some elements of the appropriate curation and preservation of research data using: KAPTUR RDM workshop 1. Value and context 2. Planning and creation 3. Ethics and legal requirements 4.Use and re-use 5.Long term access http://www.dcc.ac.uk/webfm_send/828 What? When?
• 5 themes - one per table
• Introduction/background - 5 minutes
• each table to view a video - 5 minutes or less
• hand-outs contain notes and questions for discussion on the theme
• each table to write brainstorm on piece of paper - 20 minutes
• 1 person from each table to report back to the room 3 most significant points - 15 minutes (3 minutes x 5 tables)
• Follow-up will be a blog post and inform development of the KAPTUR toolkit Scientific or Historical value? Uniqueness Charlotte Hodes discusses drawing from drawing at The British Museum, from the ALTO (Arts Learning and Teaching Online) project at University of the Arts London. Funder requirements e.g. Economic value? https://dmponline.dcc.ac.uk/ [major UK funders and customisable] Creation site/circumstances Documentation and Records Management Archival file formats Professor Jeff Haywood, Vice Principal Knowledge Management - Importance of good file management in research, from the Research Data Management Training (MANTRA) project at the University of Edinburgh (September 2010 - August 2011) Legislation relating to Public Records, Copyright and Patents, Freedom of Information, Data Protection, Health and Safety, and Equality?
Funder, host institution or discipline-specific information governance guidelines and codes of practice?
Restrictions on sharing, access and re-use if the research involved human subjects (e.g. sensitive health or political data)? Adrian Howells: research ethics processes. From the JISCMRD CAiRO and Incremental projects (2009-2011) Data must be kept accessible, backups kept, and sharing and access implemented. All this adds to the cost of keeping data. The total cost must be considered and estimated to check whether it is financially viable to keep the data.
Ensure that the data cannot be tampered with or inadvertently changed.
Can the data be easily migrated to other formats? Is there documentation to support sharing, access and re-use of the data?
What is the reliability and usability of the dataset?
Does the dataset meet technical criteria that allow its easy redistribution? Stephen Gray: sharing research data.
From the JISCMRD CAiRO and Incremental projects (2009-2011) Barry Smith: data survival. From the JISCMRD CAiRO and Incremental projects (2009-2011) 1. Value and context 2. Planning and creation 3. Ethics and legal requirements 4. Use and re-use Workshop feedback from 14.09.12 5. Long term access historical value - research is always 'of its time'
economic or pedagogic value for educational institutions
new theories or philosophies of creation part of being a 'good' researcher is to be aware of available/applicable standards, institutional regulations and different funder requirements
what is different about visual arts data? maybe it is not so different afterall?
provocation as part of artistic practice - 'my research won't fit - I'll do it my way'
the ethics of terminology - who develops and who changes names? having a framework and guidelines can be a positive thing - the researcher in the video comments on this
need to acknowledge that legal requirements will influence the end product - can also be negative restriction
Intellectual Property issues vary in complexity from a book to a theatre piece with potentially lots of IPRs documentation is required to enable use and re-use in new contexts such as learning and teaching
the documentation can be just as interesting as the data
how much of 're-use' is just 'viewing' the research data rather than actual re-use? what is long term access without openness?
informed duty of care is needed - who is responsible for doing what?
need for a cost model for long term accessSee the full transcript
