Trustworthiness of scientific data

Trustworthiness of scientific data is based on three broad granularities: at the level of the individual data points, at the level of the data set, and at the level of the curation and preservation of the data set. For all three of these aspects, there are existing or emerging frameworks for formal assurance of trustworthiness that will be discussed. These range from standards-based measures for each level or granularity to metrics derived from crowd-sourced opinions, usage statistics and social media. The presentation will provide an overview of this landscape.

Building blocks for success: criteria for trusted institutional repositories
Trust is a relative term when it comes to research, but so important. Results of a study by Eiser et al<http://tomstafford.staff.shef.ac.uk/docs/eiser09.pdf> (2009) demonstrated that expertise is not the strongest determinate of who or what is trusted. Instead, people trust those who  or what they believe have their best interests at heart. This is three to four times more important than perception of expertise.

The question when working with IRs: Do we have the best interest of all role players (individuals, users/researchers, institutions, funders, country, continent etc) at heart when working with IRs, and what is it we do, to gain their trust, in offering these services? In this presentation we will look at the criteria for a trusted IR, bringing together an analysis of criteria proposed by the following:

·      OAIS Reference Model (ISO)

·      Trusted digital repositories: attributes and responsibilities (RLG/OCLC) (2002)

·      An audit checklist for the certification of trusted digital repositories (RLG-NARA) (2005)

·      Trustworthy Repositories Audit and Certification: Criteria & Checklist (TRAC) (CRL) (2007)

·      Data Seal of Approval (DANS) (2008)

·      DIN 31644 Information and documentation – Criteria for trustworthy digital archives (German Standards Committee) (2008)

·      Audit and certification of trustworthy digital repositories (Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems) (2011)

·      ISO 16363 Audit and Certification of Trustworthy Digital Repositories (2012)

·      And more

It will also try to bring together thinking on trusted repositories presented during ICRI, DIRISA, pre-ICRU, SciDataCon2016, International Data Week, and more. The DATAD Criteria for a trusted IR will be shared with participants.
