Weaving Together Preservation and Active Research

The Center for Open Science, DuraSpace, Johns Hopkins University, and the University of Notre Dame are partnering to extend preservation capabilities within the Open Science Framework (OSF). Noteworthy growth in the use of the OSF by researchers coupled with the OSF's focus on research workflow integration (e.g., connecting third-party services via API) represents an opportunity to connect two traditionally disjointed activities: preservation and active research. By integrating preservation into research workflows, archiving and preservation would move from being distinct activities following the active research phase to more continuous activities that are part of researchers' existing workflows throughout the research lifecycle. Furthermore, this work will enable the true mission of preservation by facilitating reuse and retrieval of archived data and files into subsequent research projects. This partnership has already resulted in a simple integration of Fedora as a storage provider into OSF and additional capabilities that bolster archiving and preservation such as packaging and ingesting data. Additionally, the partners have initiated discussions regarding a richer integration with Fedora that would take advantage of its native linked data capabilities. Finally, the partners have discussed the possible role for archiving and preservation via OSF as a layer over the evolving National Institutes of Health (NIH) Data Commons. Each of the presenters will describe their respective viewpoint and institutional contributions followed up with a question and answer panel session.
