Active (source project) and social (user community) curation
Jianwu Wang asked what will happen when the project is over? SEAD has agreements with Indiana, ICPSR and others that extends 5 or more years after the project. Helping to start the National Data Service could be how it extends beyond the project lifetime.
Reagan Moore asked 1. if SEAD has services to help evaluate Data Management Plans? One could apply it with some work. SEAD has the query interfaces, but hasn't made it into a service. Could iRODS pass a rule to SEAD's API? Use case, identify which files are missing metadata.
2. Are there access controls? Yes. You can define in SEAD.
3. Auditing, can I track what others in team have been doing? Yes, at some level. Can track who views page to who added tags, metadata and on what date. Major things recorded. This can provide information needed for enforcing ISO 16363 trustworthiness criteria.
Christine Kirkpatrick asked about using SEAD in front of repositories stored outside of SEAD, especially for large files. With a Globus end point, can use SEAD to add metadata.
Rebecca Koskela: DataONE (Data Observation Network for Earth)
Major CI components: Coordinating nodes, Member nodes and Investigator Toolkit.
New, different ways to become a member node
Providing a registry service for member nodes
Emphasis on provenance and semantics-enabled discovery
Data services registry - currently only available for same service member node data
Reagan Moore asked if they've worked with Cyverse? Yes, they are talking to them currently. Mike Conway said they're starting with hydroshare running dockerized hydrology workflows viathecyversemiddleware stack. This would be appropriate for publication on DataONE via member node software.
How sites can check whether or not they're meeting their DMP requirements? Rebecca said it could be added to the registry if someone added it as a service.
All NSF DMP reqs (38) can be mapped to ISOTrust requirements.
What about the sustainability of the software you've developed? They've put on github. They also have a Slack channel for developers to communicate. Reagan Moore noted this is one of the hopes for the BDHubs, that they would help with this aspect of sustainability.
Christine Kirkpatrick asked if they are looking for new coordinating nodes? Yes, Australia is interested in adding one. All coordinating nodes are replicas. DataONE doesn't own any data, has to all be open access, public data.
Jim Myers asked if they've looked at their statistics? Yes, the data are very different, varies from one file to 1,000's. What is the best metric to use? They use uploads, downloads for activity and data citations (for reuse).
