Successful data training stories from NCI https://dresa.org.au/materials/successful-data-training-stories-from-nci-33f110e3-0c06-492e-9cc5-fa0f886ca1b8 NCI Australia manages a multi-petabyte sized data repository, collocated with its HPC systems and data services, which allows high performance access to many scientific research datasets across many earth science domains. An important aspect is to provide training materials that proactively engages with the research community to improve their understanding of the data available, and to share knowledge and best practices in the use of tools and other software. We have developed multiple levels of training modules (introductory, intermediate and advanced) to cater for users with different levels of experience and interest. We have also tailored courses for each scientific domain, so that the use-cases and software will be most relevant to their interests and needs. For our training, we combine brief lectures followed by hands-on training examples on how to use datasets, using working examples of well-known tools and software that people can use as a template and modify to fit their needs. For example, we take representative use-cases from some scientific activities, from our collaborations and from user support issues, and convert to Jupyter notebook examples so that people can repeat the workfIow and reproduce the results. We also use the training as an opportunity to raise awareness of growing issues in resource management. Some examples include a familiarity of the FAIR data principles, licensing, citation, data management and trusted digital repositories. This approach to both our online training materials and workshops has been well-received by PhD students, early careers, and cross disciplinary users. contact@ardc.edu.au skills, training, eresearch skills, HPC training, domain-specific training, reproducible workflows, training material

MetaSat. An open, collaboratively-developed metadata toolkit to support the future of space exploration. https://dresa.org.au/materials/metasat-an-open-collaboratively-developed-metadata-toolkit-to-support-the-future-of-space-exploration-49af7d4d-f0d1-4f95-9fbe-afbd45170a6a MetaSat is an open metadata toolkit for describing small satellite (and even large satellite) missions in a uniform and shareable way. Optimised for small satellite missions, MetaSat fills an informatics gap. Although there have been a number of relevant metadata sets, there has been a longstanding need for a vocabulary to span these community standards. A vocabulary to annotate the data and information outputs of these satellite missions, to enable search across disparate data repositories, and provide support for application of analytical services to retrieved datasets. A common problem among small satellite teams is finding information about how other small satellites were put together, what parts worked well, what weren't compatible, what were the mission goals and outcomes. A lot of this information can be found, but it's not usually described in a consistent and searchable way across projects. MetaSat helps by building a uniform language of description which can be embedded into small satellite databases and tools to connect information across projects. Although a relatively new vocabulary initiative, MetaSat has secured early adoption by SatNOGS, a global network of ground stations that collects, manages & enables access to satellite observations. Also partnering with NASA's Small Satellite Reliability Initiative, and in discussion with NASA concerning implementation of the vocabulary in other areas of its information infrastructure.

Data Policy https://dresa.org.au/materials/data-policy-c8bc856f-0afa-49dc-b100-36e9a8375327 Increasing the availability of research data for reuse is in part being driven by research data policies. While the number of research funders, journals and institutions with some form of research data policy is growing, the landscape is complex and therefore the implementation and implications of policies for researchers can be unclear, confusing and sometimes even contradictory. The RDA Data Policy Standardisation and Implementation IG was established to help address these challenges. Initially the Group focussed on Developing a Research Data Policy Framework for All Journals and Publishers and with journal adoptions of the framework growing, the Group is now focussing on alignment between publishers and funders. This session provided an overview of the joint session held at RDA P17 of the Research Funders and Stakeholders on Open Research and Data Management and Practices IG, the Data Policy Standardisation and Implementation IG and the FAIRsharing WG. The focus of this RDA VP17 session was to provide an overview of a joint project to examine funder-publisher policy alignment and provide recommendations on how to improve alignment. contact@ardc.edu.au policy, data policy, publishers, training material
