Make scientific data FAIR

Scientific data are burgeoning — thousands of petabytes were collected in 2018 alone. But these data are not being used widely enough to realize their potential. Most researchers come up against obstacles when they try to get their hands on data sets. Only one-fifth of published papers typically...

A new fundamental type of conformational isomerism

Isomerism is a fundamental chemical concept, reflecting the fact that the arrangement of atoms in a molecular entity has a profound influence on its chemical and physical properties. Here we describe a previously unclassified fundamental form of conformational isomerism through four resolved...

The Australian Geoscience Data Cube — Foundations and lessons learned

The Australian Geoscience Data Cube (AGDC) aims to realise the full potential of Earth observation data holdings by addressing the Big Data challenges of volume, velocity, and variety that otherwise limit the usefulness of Earth observation data. There have been several iterations and AGDC version 2...

Persistent Identifier Practice for Big Data Management at NCI

The National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) manages over 10 PB research data, which is co-located with the high performance computer (Raijin) and an HPC class 3000 core OpenStack cloud system (Tenjin). In support of this integrated High Performance Computing/High Performance Data (HPC/HPD)...

Providing Research Graph data in JSON-LD using Schema.org

In this position paper, we describe a pilot project that provides Research Graph records to external web services using JSON-LD. The Research Graph database contains a large-scale graph that links research datasets (i.e., data used to support research) to funding records (i.e. grants), publications...

Supporting Data Reproducibility at NCI Using the Provenance Capture System

Scientific research is published in journals so that the research community is able to share knowledge and results, verify hypotheses, contribute evidence-based opinions and promote discussion. However, it is hard to fully understand, let alone reproduce, the results if the complex data manipulation...

Graph Connections Made By RD-Switchboard Using NCI's Metadata

This paper demonstrates the connectivity graphs made by Research Data Switchboard (RD-Switchboard) using NCI's metadata database. Making research data connected, discoverable and reusable are some of the key enablers of the new data revolution in research. We show how the Research Data Switchboard...
