Featured Speakers

Pablo de Castro, University of Strathclyde:
The Role of Universities in the Implementation of Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) #57
The report “Building the plane as we fly it: the promise of persistent identifiers” was published last February by the Knowledge Exchange. The report explores the challenges, opportunities, risks and trust-related issues associated with the quickly-developing PID landscape with an emphasis on the six KE member countries (Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Netherlands and the United Kingdom). This contribution provides a summary of the findings of this study and analyses this fragmented PID landscape in some detail. The role universities are expected to play in the gradual, unstoppable adoption of a wide range of PIDs is laid out, together with some early best practices in the domain.

Anna Guillaumet, SIGMA:
Research Information Management (RIM)/Current Research Information (CRIS) Systems for Research Organizations: A Project Brief from the Open-Source VIVO Community #71
Research organizations can support enhanced efficiency and innovation on campus through the implementation and use of research information management (RIM) or current research information. systems (CRIS). These systems support the transparent aggregation, curation, and utilization of heterogenous data about institutional research activities that can be used to promote researcher identity and reputation, reporting and compliance, or research intelligence. VIVO is a semantic, open-source RIM software and an ontology for representing scholarship using linked open data supported through an active, open, member-supported community.

Bert Zulauf, Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf:
Brave New Lab World – Electronic Lab Books Digitise Laboratory Documentation #24
At German universities and universities of applied sciences, a new way of working is currently opening up in the area of the structure and composition of laboratory work: Documentation by means of electronic laboratory notebooks (ELN). At Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU), advice and support for researchers in the field of research data management (RDM) is provided on a regular basis. In addition to assistance with applications, we also offer support using various RDM tools, including electronic lab books. Why it makes sense to use electronic lab books, how our path with them has progressed so far, and what are the current hurdles to be overcome are presented.

Anna Guillaumet, SIGMA:
Impact of doctoral students’ research activities on CRIS systems #37
Through the results of a survey conducted in 18 relevant Spanish universities, this study aims to analyze how the research activities carried out during the doctoral training period, impact, or may impact, on CRIS systems. Some conclusions are presented, as well as examples of the amount of data related to doctoral students and their activities that can be collected in these systems and how.
