The CESSDA Data Archiving Guide: A resource for people who love data [Workshop]

This is the presentation "The CESSDA Data Archiving Guide: A resource for people who love data" from the workshop at the IASSIST 2022 conference. The CESSDA Data Archiving Guide (https://dag.cessda.eu/) is a new resource developed by CESSDA and is designed to provide employees at data archives and repositories with an understanding of the work a data archive performs. The information in the DAG was collected by experts from CESSDA social science data archives reflecting the procedures and policies at their local archives. While the context of these archives varies — in size, the underlying technical architecture or in the specific services provided to researchers — the DAG focuses on common ground and is a useful tool for professionals new to data archiving or those who are knowledgeable in one domain and now seek to broaden their expertise. The 120-minute workshop was made up of representatives from three of the data archives who have built DAG and followed the structure below: ● Introduction to DAG; ● Present the content of three sections: FAQ(s), Policies, and Pre-ingest; ● Interactive sessions with participants; ● Focused discussion with participants on several topics (comments on current content, suggestions for topics future sections, discussion of how DAG might be distinctive as a resource for data professionals because it provides a sustainable infrastructure supported by CESSDA).

CESSDA in ERA - collaborations, partnerships and perspectives

Slides presented at the IASSIST 2022 Conference, in Gothenburg, Sweden, in the "Panel 1: CESSDA in ERA - collaborations, partnerships and perspectives", on 8 June 2022. Summary of the session: Presenting CESSDA ERIC wide range of current collaborations and partnerships, grouped in three areas: Research communities advancing the SSH research, European Research Infrastructures advancing the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), European RIs advancing the Digital Future of Europe.  For research communities advancing the SSH research - CESSDA is either participating in or supporting a number of projects and initiatives advancing the SSH research. Examples of the engagement with thematic communities via projects are EurHisFirm (dealing with historic economic data), COORDINATE (child and youth wellbeing), and HumMingBird (migration data community) projects. Connecting established infrastructures with new ones within the domain is another way of establishing a link with thematic communities via the SSHOC project, OPERAS (open publications), RESILIENCE (religious studies), and GGP (gender and generations programme) are welcomed as new and emerging ESFRI infrastructures.  In the case of European Research Infrastructures advancing the European Open Science Cloud - CESSDA is connected to EOSC via several channels, the main being the coordination of the SSHOC (Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud) project, one of 5 cluster projects connecting thematic communities to EOSC, but also by participating in a number of other EOSC related projects like TRIPLE, EOSC Future or EOSC Enhance).  For European RIs advancing the Digital Future of Europe - CESSDA is actively engaged in ERIC Forum Implementation project and RITrain Plus project, both gathering EU research infrastructures to work on common challenges (and in particular the need for educated and properly trained managers). Finally, the cross-domain collaboration is gaining momentum via alignment with other cluster projects (i.e. in SSHOC project), with other organisations and partners from different scientific domains (i.e. in EOSC Future project) and in the life-sciences domain in particular (i.e. BY-COVID project).  In this session, examples were used to address some of the challenges, showcasing the results of collaborations in each of the above-mentioned areas and demonstrate the best practices used.
