The Definition of Reuse

van de Sandt, Stephanie, et al. 2019. « The Definition of Reuse ». Data Science Journal, 18: 22, pp. 1–19. (Crossref), doi:10.5334/dsj-2019-022

The ability to reuse research data is now considered a key benefit for the wider research community. Researchers of all disciplines are confronted with the pressure to share their research data so that it can be reused. The demand for data use and reuse has implications on how we document, publish and share research in the first place, and, perhaps most importantly, it affects how we measure the impact of research, which is commonly a measurement of its use and reuse. It is surprising that research communities, policy makers, etc. have not clearly defined what use and reuse is yet.

We postulate that a clear definition of use and reuse is needed to establish better metrics for a comprehensive scholarly record of individuals, institutions, organizations, etc. Hence, this article presents a first definition of reuse of research data. Characteristics of reuse are identified by examining the etymology of the term and the analysis of the current discourse, leading to a range of reuse scenarios that show the complexity of today’s research landscape, which has been moving towards a data-driven approach. The analysis underlines that there is no reason to distinguish use and reuse. We discuss what that means for possible new metrics that attempt to cover Open Science practices more comprehensively. We hope that the resulting definition will enable a better and more refined strategy for Open Science.

Software Curation in Research Libraries: Practice and Promise

Chassanoff, A., AlNoamany, Y., Thornton, K. and Borghi, J., 2018. Software Curation in Research Libraries: Practice and Promise. Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication, 6(1), p.None. DOI:

INTRODUCTION Research software plays an increasingly vital role in the scholarly record. Academic research libraries are in the early stages of exploring strategies for curating and preserving research software, aiming to facilitate support and services for long-term access and use. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM In 2016, the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) began offering postdoctoral fellowships in software curation. Four institutions hosted the initial cohort of software curation fellows. This article describes the work activities and research program of the cohort, highlighting the challenges and benefits of doing this exploratory work in research libraries. NEXT STEPS Academic research libraries are poised to play an important role in research and development around robust services for software curation. The next cohort of CLIR fellows is set to begin in fall 2018 and will likely shape and contribute substantially to an emergent research agenda.

Réaliser un plan de gestion de données « FAIR » : guide de rédaction

Article publié sur @SIC, Archive ouverte  en sciences de l’information et de la communication le 23 janvier 2018. Contributeurs : Nathalie Reymonet, Magalie Moysan, Aurore Cartier, Renaud Délémontez.

« Ce document a pour vocation d’accompagner les chercheurs et chargés de projets dans la rédaction de plans de gestion de données de la recherche (Data Management Plans, DMP). La structure proposée tient compte du cycle de vie des données, de leur création dans le cadre d’un projet de recherche jusqu’à leur archivage. Elle s’appuie également sur divers modèles de plans de gestion de données tels que celui de la National Science Foundation (NSF) ou de l’Interuniversity Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR).
Ce guide intègre les attendus de la Commission européenne dans le cadre d’Horizon 2020 et du FAIR data management (…) »
