Abstract

This workshop tells the story of how we have worked with our arts and architecture communities (and open source repository developers at Haplo) to build a repository that better reflects the way they see their research.

This is not simply a story about software – but of engagement with people, developing inclusive strategy and policy and how arts research brings together open research and research data management We touched on the many barriers to capturing arts research – systems and infrastructure, copyright and IP issues,
lack of funder policy and often due to some/all these issues - a lack of engagement from this community.

This all ultimately impacts on whether it is possible to make this research FAIR.

After this case study the session include two discussion sessions:

Discussion session 1 covered Persistent Identifiers and schema. We started with ORCID (focusing on the outcomes from Tuesday’s Work Types in the ORCID Registry Event) and discussed a range of issues relevant to other schema (such as Datcite and RAID).

Discussion session 2 covered challenges and barriers to engagement with this community. This session was informed by discussions held at Repository Fringe in 2018, Open Repositories 2019 and the event Practice-research is for life – not just REF (March 2019) and engagement with the Practice Research Advisory Group (PRAG-UK).
