4- Data-release improves quality
This is one of thirteen recommendations for Data Stewardship as formulated by the Netherlands E-Science Centre.
The E-science centre writes
- Requiring researchers to share their data, especially when including unique persistent data identifiers, will result in more careful experimentation and analysis by primary researchers.
What DTL recommends for the Data Stewardship plan
Answer the following questions:
- Will your published data be part of a larger long living data set with an existing location?
- How long will the location of the data be guaranteed? Will the (canonical) location of the data change when the project ends? If the department changes name? If the faculty at the university merges with another faculty? If you move to another institute?
- Who will own the data? Who will get credit for the data?
Experience from DTL
- D3 credits to data producers -> acknowledgement rules (e.g. http://www.nlgenome.nl/?page_id=9)
