Why should I care about preservation? I just need a place to put my data.Are data included in open access?How can I share my work with my colleagues?How can I publish the data associated with my publications?How do I fulfill the data management requirements of my grant?How can I make sure I get credit ?Cant my work be included in the Web of Science?</p> <p>How can I provide access to my work?Outside of our library view what are faculty and researchers thinking about they have new demands on them.</p> <p>Agencies are requiring that researchers state how they will manage their dataMany journals are requiring that data be submitted along with a journal submissionNSF big change 5Challenge for Researchers</p> <p>Pressure to abide by regulations by granting agencies and publishers/journalsChanging regulations, confusing regulations. Pressure to bring in the money, need grants</p> <p>Lack of formal data management training/understandingMany scientists do not know how to mange their data, now they have labs with more students, working collaborative across institutions.Not aware of problems with Data Management until someone leaves. Or until someone asks for their data. Or worse, their data is destroyed/lost!</p> <p>Not a priority for most researchers (takes time away from the work that is rewarded) Data Management takes time, away from what they like doing the research, the science. They would rather be doing this than managing their data</p> <p>Data is expensive (time, instrumentation, inability to reproduce)Instrumentation is expensive, when you buy time on a telescope, that data is irriplaceable. Expensive, </p> <p>Research data is being lost because of poor data management and lack of institutional repositoriesResearchers have collected all this data during their project and now what do they do with it. Where will they put it, even if they want to. More often they create webpages.
