Fair Research Data

Data Sharing and Management Snafu in 3 Short Acts. NYU Health Sciences Library

TUHH is starting plan to set up its own institutional repository for research data. A topic that will accompany us – alongside all technology and workflows – is to make all data FAIR – Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable.

FAIR Data Principles

One of the grand challenges of data-intensive science is to facilitate knowledge discovery by assisting humans and machines in their discovery of, access to, integration and analysis of, task-appropriate scientific data and their associated algorithms and workflows. A FAIR Data Publishing Group of FORCE11 has been discussing FAIR – a set of guiding principles to make data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Re-usable.

To be Findable:

F1. (meta)data are assigned a globally unique and eternally persistent identifier.
F2. data are described with rich metadata.
F3. (meta)data are registered or indexed in a searchable resource.
F4. metadata specify the data identifier.

To be Accessible:

A1  (meta)data are retrievable by their identifier using a standardized communications protocol.
A1.1 the protocol is open, free, and universally implementable.
A1.2 the protocol allows for an authentication and authorization procedure, where necessary.
A2 metadata are accessible, even when the data are no longer available.

To be Interoperable:

I1. (meta)data use a formal, accessible, shared, and broadly applicable language for knowledge representation.
I2. (meta)data use vocabularies that follow FAIR principles.
I3. (meta)data include qualified references to other (meta)data.

To be Re-usable:

R1. meta(data) have a plurality of accurate and relevant attributes.
R1.1. (meta)data are released with a clear and accessible data usage license.
R1.2. (meta)data are associated with their provenance.
R1.3. (meta)data meet domain-relevant community standards.


E-books from De Gruyter

Books on industrial chemistry from publisher De Gruyter (Screenshot)
In the last years the TUHH library has bought individual e-books from the publisher De Gruyter from time to time. In 2017 the complete e-book program from De Gruyter is available within TUHH intranet. At the end of the year the tub. will decide, also depending on usage, which small selection of titles will be included in its holdings permanently.

Buchtipps

As long-established publisher the schedule of books by De Gruyter includes all subjects. Here you find a selection of titles interesting within TUHH:

Field of mathematics

Overview mathematics

Field of engineering

Overview engineering

Field of industrial chemistry (process engineering)

Overview industrial chemistry (process engineering)

Outlook on 2018

Because the publisher De Gruyter sells above mentioned textbooks quite expensively, it cannot be guaranteed, that all above mentioned titles will be availalable within TUHH permanently.

International book week – BookCrossing

Please pay special attention to our BookCrossing shelf at the entrance area of the library.

This subject week we would like to send books into different languages on travelling. Maybe an interesting book is present for you?

  • english
  • chinese
  • french
  • dutch
  • norwegian
  • spanish
  • russian
  • vietnamese

Donations are still welcome. Thank you very much.
