The report provides an aggregated picture of the use and outcomes from National Research Infrastructure (NRI), including the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) projects, supporting quality research that benefits Australia.
This report contributes to a growing body of work from OCLC to better understand research information management (RIM) practices, including their regional differences, as well as the growing interoperability imperative between siloed sources of data—both internal and external.
This report provides university and research library leaders with useful insights on emerging practices and infrastructures in European research information management (RIM), on the current and future role of persistent person and organization identifiers, and, more specifically, on incentives and barriers to adoption.
Research infrastructures are long-term enterprises. They are increasingly diverse in nature, may operate under very different models of governance and financing, and within diverse and evolving financial and political contexts. They represent strategic investments which are indispensable for enabling and developing research in all scientific...
The considerations and suggestions presented here are based on research and consultations with the following four countries, each of which is advanced in terms of the development of research infrastructures and research data management: Australia, Canada, Netherlands, United Kingdom.
Outstanding science and research is a critical foundation of an innovative and prosperous modern society. Globally competitive research depends on access to first-class research equipment, systems and services, collectively referred to as research infrastructure.
Australia today is the beneficiary of internationally recognised and highly...
The Australasian Council of Deans of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (DASSH) acknowledges that the current draft 2016 National Research Infrastructure Roadmap goes a long way in recognising the developments in humanities and social sciences research and its contribution to a national research and innovation...
The Australasian Council of Deans of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (DASSH) argues that the humanities, arts and social sciences (HASS) sector comprises a large part of Australia’s research and innovation system, a system that is transforming due to digital capabilities and the resulting transformation...
The paper presents a range of issues relating to national research infrastructure capability areas and is the first step in working towards a shared view of the capabilities that require national research infrastructure to support current, new and emerging areas of research and innovation....
In August 2014, the Australian government commissioned KPMG to undertake an independent review of the 27 research infrastructure projects funded under the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) 2013. The NCRIS projects were assessed and rated across their governance, effectiveness, efficiency, integration, financial management and...
Data is crucial to most research, and, increasingly, research is data-intensive. New discoveries are being made by looking for data patterns from colliders and telescopes. A huge number of researchers have shared genetic data in an unprecedented way to map the...
The Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research (DIISR) is developing a 2011 Strategic Roadmap for Australian Research Infrastructure (2011 Roadmap), which will articulate Australia’s national research infrastructure priority areas
The 2011 Roadmap will inform future decisions on where Australia should...
Shared research infrastructures are playing an increasingly important role in most scientific fields and represent a significant proportion of the total public investment in science. Many of these infrastructures have the potential to be used outside of their traditional scientific domain and outside of the...
