Department of Science & Technology
|The international drive and importance of data citation. RDA Task group as well as any other relevant international initiatives||Simon Hodson,
Executive Director of CODATA
|CODATA Data Citation Task Team & its outputs: The citation principles developed

||Daisy Selematsela, Executive Director: KMC
|NeDICC – Its role and plans for 2016||Lucia Lötter, Chairperson: NeDICC|
|DIRISA Progress & function/role – (a) Repository certification: A network of trusted data repositories for South Africa; (b) DIRISA repository; (c) Encouraging good research practice – also for proper citation; (d) National digital object identifier infrastructure; (e) Researcher IDs||Anwar Vahed, Manager: DIRISA|
|“$100 is not much to you”: Unseen Barriers in Open Science||Louise Bezuidenhout University of Exeter and WITS|
|Workshop discussion: Data citation Concerns, success stories Will data citation really be seen as a reward for the proper management of research data?|
|Workshop discussion: Shared language / Jargon Clarification of terms (some examples) Ownership/ Management/ Stewardship Persistent identifiers Open, Embargoed and Restricted access Data center, Preservation DMP / RDM / RDA|
|Workshop discussion: Roles and responsibilities The RDM role and responsibility of each of the following: Funders; Research offices / officers; Libraries; Ethics committees; IP / Licensing office; The researchers; and the Role / responsibility for a data center|
|Roadmap session 1: A proposed national repository: Institutions have three options when making their research data accessible – (a) Establish your own managed data repository;
(b) Make use of an established subject / domain repository; or (c) Use DIRISA’s repository (prototype will be demonstrated)
• Join the planning and development team … Contribute to the requirements document for the repository (including the citation reference/ protocol) and preservation management & infrastructure.
• Ensure that all repositories could be harvested to allow for a national ‘register’ of South African data sets.

|Roadmap session 2: A proposed national DMP tool. Institutions could implement/ develop their own Data Management Planning (DMP) tools or collaborate and make use of a reliable national resource.
• RDM Plans – what are the funder requirements
• Specify the requirements for a national initiative.
