RDAP 2019 Summit Partner Level Sponsor Code Ocean

Thank you to our partner level sponsor, Code Ocean, for making the 2019 RDAP Summit possible. Get to know Code Ocean with a Q&A.

Describe your organization’s role in Research Data Management.

Code Ocean started off and continues to be an open access computational reproducibility platform ideal for authors at the point of publication who have code and data to include alongside their finished research. This has appealed to many research data management groups who support researchers with DMPs, help educate researchers about best practices for curating code and data, and strive to increase awareness of reproducibility inclusive of the tools and resources that exist to help them. Code Ocean brings together leading tools, languages, and environments to give researchers an end-to-end workflow geared towards reproducibility so researchers can focus on the research and allow Code Ocean to handle the technology. This is proving to be a valuable benefit and resource for many RDM personnel.

Who are you and what do you do?

Code Ocean has expanded to power researchers’ work not just at the point of publication but throughout the lifecycle of their projects. Our recent updates have enabled us to become a research collaboration platform. We support researchers in their code and data development and management from the moment they start a project. We enable collaboration with others, handle version control, employ virtual, integrated versions of researchers favorite tools like Jupyter and R Studio, and supply reproducible code and data packages attached to the article at the point of publication. In addition, libraries, research departments, and IT teams who have different needs around code and data curation, preservation, allocating computing resources, or concerns about maintaining IP within the institution can all be addressed with our current functionality.

Have you ever attended an RDAP Summit before?

Yes. People from Code Ocean attended last year and it’s by far one of our favorite conferences because of the great discussions and sessions that you generally don’t find at other conferences. We also appreciate the inclusive nature of this event for attendees and sponsors. It’s a very well done and thoughtful experience.

What are you most looking forward to at this year’s Summit?

This is a difficult one to give a single answer for. Obviously, the sessions are great. This year we are looking forward to seeing old colleagues and friends and making new ones. We have some exciting new things on the platform including git integration for version control, as well as reporting and analysis features that provide insights for managers and administrators. We’re excited to share these with attendees and hear their feedback on our latest updates.

What data-thing or project has you the most excited right now?

Renku seems to be a very exciting project. It’s an open source tool designed to do reproducible data science. It addresses several important issues in reproducibility, and what’s unique about it is that it represents data lineage as a knowledge graph. We can’t wait to see more updates on this project. Our Outreach Science team is looking forward to our co-presentation with the Renku team at SciPy in July 2019.

What else should the RDAP community should know about you and Code Ocean?

The history of Code Ocean plays a huge role in who we are as a company and what drives our product and our work. Our CEO, Simon Adar, spent part of his Ph.D. exploiting airborne and spaceborne multispectral and hyperspectral images for the purpose of environmental monitoring. This meant building on previously published works, but as Simon and his colleagues got deeper into the project, they faced multiple roadblocks, particularly in trying to get other researchers’ code up and running. It took six years for Simon to complete his Ph.D and one full year of that time was spent struggling with previous researchers’ code. He wanted to find a better way to find, reproduce, and execute code and data to help others avoid the problems that plagued his work; that was why Code Ocean was founded. At our core, we want to reduce friction around code and data that is so integral to researchers’ work, contribute to open access research, and help researchers’ implement reproducibility best practices throughout their project.

Why is sponsoring RDAP important to you?

We see the positive impact we can have on this community and want to support and assist in every way possible.

Hearing from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences in the research data space and sharing these learnings with the community of organizations using Figshare.

What data-thing or project has you the most excited right now?

Megan: I’m really excited about the possibilities of visualizing data to make it even more interactive and engaging for audiences. I’m particularly interested to see how the reusable aspect of FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) can help facilitate the creation of these visualizations by ensuring data is as open as possible and the metadata is thoroughly documented. We did some work on this last year that is available here: https://figshare.com/blog/Building_visualizations_from_FAIR_data_on_Figshare/449

Natasha:  How we will tackle the challenge of assuring data trustworthiness, where there is no obvious solution and this is especially challenging for generalist data repositories and institutions. We can draw upon lessons from traditional outputs, such as the peer review process of journal articles, but this is also a chance to build something new as a community. There are few solutions already in existence, on a small-scale, and I’m excited to see how these will evolve and how we (as a generalist data repository) can work with them.

Today’s interviewee is Alan Hyndman, marketing director at Figshare.

Q: Who are you and what do you do?

Hello, my name is Alan Hyndman, I’m the marketing director at Figshare and have worked here for 6 years. Figshare is an ‘all in one repository’ for papers, data and non-traditional research outputs, working with institutions, publishers, funders and governments all over the world.

Q: Have you ever attended an RDAP Summit before?

Yes, this will be my third year in a row at RDAP and it is definitely my favorite North American conference to attend. RDAP is a chance to bring everyone in the data librarian community together to share stories, initiatives, pain points and innovative solutions.

Q: What are you most looking forward to at this year’s Summit?

I look forward to hearing about the big challenges for 2018 and beyond. This space is moving so fast that we went from talking about open data to FAIR data in a short amount of time, I’m curious to see what the next big thing will be. I’m also looking forward to hearing about the Figshare project at Carnegie Mellon University on the workshop Friday, they are doing very cool stuff.

Q: What data-thing or project has you the most excited right now?

I love data visualization and the potential it has to make research more accessible and exciting. A great example of this is the Oxford University Interactive Data Network, they use Shiny apps to query datasets on Figshare and plot them in a really cool ways. We loved their work so much that we partnered with them to do data visualization of our State of Open Data survey data and have some other collaborations coming up in 2018.

Q: What else should the RDAP community should know about you and Figshare?

People know us for being a data repository but since we started working with institutions 3 years ago they started asking us if they could migrate their paper repository to Figshare as well. We are of the opinion ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’, sadly in a lot of cases paper repositories are broken, tired, out of date and not fitting for the modern researcher workflow. Several gap analyses later we have started building out traditional IR functionality to complement our existing data repository platform. A good friend of mine at one of my favorite institutions that we work with said to me “We have a paper repository and a separate data repository, but we can’t think of a good reason why”.

For me it makes most sense to have all research outputs living together in the same place, papers, data, code and all non-traditional research outputs. That’s easier for the researcher depositing, easier for the researcher discovering and means fewer systems for the institution to manage.  At the same time APIs and interoperability are really important to us, when a university is happy with their current setup we are happy to throw and catch data wherever we can.

Q: Who are you and what do you do?

I’m Rebecca Grant, and I’ve been working as Research Data Manager at Springer Nature since July 2017.

I work in the Open Research Group, and two of the biggest projects I work on are the roll-out of standard research data policies across our journals, and a new service providing hands-on curation assistance to researchers who want to share their data in repositories. I’ll be speaking about both of these projects during the Intersection of Publishing and Data panel on Wednesday 21st.

I’m a qualified archivist and part-time doctoral candidate at University College Dublin, where my research is investigating the connections between archival skills and training and research data management. I also co-chair the Research Data Alliance Interest Group on Archives and Records Professionals for Research Data.

Q: Have you ever attended an RDAP Summit before?

This will be my first RDAP Summit!

Q: What are you most looking forward to at this year’s Summit?

The session Data quality: Curation services, Metadata, and Metrics. I saw Amy Koshoffer speak on this topic at the International Digital Curation Conference 2018, and I think it’s an area that’s both fascinating and important. As an archivist I’ve been trained to create metadata with a focus on context and how records will be interpreted, but we require researchers to describe their own datasets – what is the impact on metadata quality?

If resources and support are channeled into the creation of metadata, we should be able to assess and quantify what constitutes good quality metadata, and why it’s important.

Q: What data-thing or project has you the most excited right now?

I’m a member of the Research Data Alliance (RDA), and I manage the roll-out of standard data policies at Springer Nature journals, so I’m most excited about a new RDA output that’s currently under community review – the Journal and Publisher Research Data Policy Master Framework.

At Springer Nature we started rolling out our standard data policies in 2016, and since then a number of publishers have produced similar standard policies. The RDA output is the product of an Interest Group which included publishers, researchers and other stakeholders, and aimed to create common standards for developing data policies. The resulting framework facilitates the creation of different policy “levels” which are appropriate for different communities and disciplines.

Involving the community is a key aspect of the RDA’s work and the framework is currently open for review and actively soliciting community feedback.

Q: What else should the RDAP community should know about you and Springer Nature?

The RDAP community may not be aware of the breadth of the work we do to support researchers in sharing their data. As well as providing consistent research data support policies, we also advocate for the use of data availability statements (allowing data to be found and reused), and standardised data citations (ensuring researchers get credit for their published data). We have also published a curated list of recommended data repositories to support data archiving in discipline-specific, community-recognised repositories. To help authors and editors to understand all of this, we also provide a Research Data Helpdesk. Finally, we have recently launched a new service to provide hands-on assistance to researchers who want to publish their research data – I’ll be presenting on this, and our data policies, on Wednesday 21st.
