Scientific data repositories (SDRs) provide a way for scientists to share data through data deposition and reuse of deposited data. Over the last twenty‐plus years, hundreds of scientific SDRs have become available. This research examines 132 SDRs. This study assesses if the information available in the SDRs aligned with what scientists need to det...

Purpose Quality Matters is one of the most widely regarded standards for online course design. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many instructors have needed to quickly convert face-to-face classes into an online environment. However, many instructors do not have online education expertise. Standards such as Quality Matters can help guide the creation...
Article
Full-text available
As the availability of data is increasing everyday, the need to reflect on how to make these data meaningful and impactful becomes vital. Current data paradigms have provided data life cycles that often focus on data acumen and data stewardship approaches. In an effort to examine the convergence, tensions, and harmonies of these two approaches, a g...
Article
Purpose The purpose of this study is to examine the information needs of earth and environmental scientists regarding how they determine data reusability and relevance. Additionally, this study provides strategies for the development of data collections and recommendations for data management and curation for information professionals working along...
Article
The current data paradigm is seeking a more integrated and comprehensive framework to make sense of data and its derived issues. From the perspective of the data life cycle, we argue that computational and social approaches complement each other to confront data challenges. Computational approaches consist of ETL (extract, transform, and load), mod...
Article
Full-text available
The complexity of preserving virtual reality environments combines the challenges of preserving singular digital objects, the relationships among those objects, and the processes involved in creating those relationships. A case study involving the preservation of the Virtual Bethel environment is presented. This case is active and ongoing. The pape...
Article
As the demand for data science and data‐intensive capabilities grows in all sectors, educators in schools of information and library and information science are working to deepen and expand their programs to meet workforce expectations. This panel will examine current trends and investments in data education and professionalization, with an emphasi...
Article
Although data availability cannot be considered the sole predictor of effective reuse, because only accessible and well-managed data can make reuse possible, data reuse is contingent on the availability of data. It is critical to understand the nature of shareability, availability and reusability, and their synergy and relationships, to further und...
Article
This poster presents preliminary findings of a quasi-experiment think-aloud study where scientists were presented four canned results of information regarding earth science data in a counter-balanced design. Scientists were asked to think-aloud regarding what information about the data assisted them in their ability to determine reusability of that...

Full-text available
This paper characterizes the types of research environments in which individuals engaged in digital curation research are embedded or have recently been educated. It reports data from an international survey of individuals who have presented their work in professional venues (conferences and journals) that address digital curation. We address a fun...
Article
This paper outlines the preliminary proposal plans for dissertation research to examine cyberinfrastructure and interoperability elements that facilitate or interfere with data sharing and reuse. The paper includes a brief review of the literature, a description of previous studies, a preliminary plan for dissertation research, and expected contrib...
Conference Paper
This paper presents research examining metadata capital in the context of the Viral Vector Core Laboratory at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS). Methods include collaborative workflow modeling and a metadata analysis. Models of the laboratory’s workflow and metadata activity are generated to identify potential opportun...
Conference Paper
The Data Observation Network for Earth (DataONE), a U.S. NSF DataNet Partner, seeks to provide cyberinfrastructure for “open, persistent, robust, and secure access to…earth science observational data”. Scientists participating in DataONE are able to deposit, search, and reuse data available through various DataONE tools. The research presented in t...
Conference Paper
Metadata is crucial for understanding data, and can be viewed as a form of capital in the context of Big data. This paper reports on research simulating the potential of SGHI (Self-Generated Health Information) for predicting asthma episodes. A data set of 2,000 cases was generated using the Monte Carlo simulation method, with secondary modificatio...
Article
This study investigates how people use the Internet to search for an altruistic kidney donor. Although many opinion pieces on this phenomenon have been written, this is the first qualitative study focused on online kidney solicitation from the potential recipient's point of view. Eight participants - four who successfully found donors and four who...
Conference Paper
Metadata disorder and unnecessary costs are increasing due to the expanding population of scientific data schemes and standards. Metadata challenges are reviewed; and SeaIce1 , a community driven metadata vocabulary application, is introduced as a potential solution. SeaIce functions and development challenges are presented. CAMP-4-DATA participant...
