Event description

Description

Friday 2nd March 2018, 10.30-13.00 (Tea/Coffee from 10am)

The CONUL Research Group is sponsoring a workshop on the certification of digital repositories, focusing on the CoreTrustSeal framework. The workshop will be presented by Dr John B Howard of University College Dublin, a founding member of the CoreTrustSeal Board of Directors.

The workshop will review the concept of "trust" in the context of data management and Open Science, identifying stakeholders and the issues that identify trustworthiness as a significant issue for managers of digital repository services. An overview of initiatives and services that provide a basis for the certification of digital repositories will be provided, including the European Framework for Audit & Certification of Digital Repositories. Focus will be made on the CoreTrustSeal, a framework that represents a merger of the previously separate Data Seal of Approval and ICSU/World Data Systems assessment and certification approaches. Attendees will be introduced to the assessment process and requirements, including a walk through the 17 assessment categories in the CTS questionnaire.

Information about the CoreTrustSeal is available at https://www.coretrustseal.org/. Particularly pertinent to the workshop is the material linked from the page at https://www.coretrustseal.org/why-certification/requirements/.
