Next-generation research data management and repository solutions are critical in today’s research ecosystem to empower discovery and access by the community, support FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, & Reusable) science, and collect, record, preserve, and disseminate a wide range of research products — critical to enhance visibility and promote people and their expertise. InvenioRDM is a turn-key, integrated, born-interoperable RDM platform and repository to empower research data management, licensing, preservation, credit, discovery, and reuse of digital artifacts and data. The platform is being developed as part of a large, multi-organization collaboration with the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), birthplace of the World Wide Web and developers of the Zenodo open data repository service. Invenio RDM comes with pre-configured profiles for institutional repositories (IRs) and research data management (RDM) systems, as well as domain-specific repositories for health and medical sciences. InvenioRDM development is driven by user needs and informed by best practices and standards, including those that help define Next Generation Repositories as a foundation for a distributed, globally-networked infrastructure for scholarly communication, discovery, and innovation. To help support sustainability of the platform, various levels of customization are available in InvenioRDM with platform support providers available to provide hosted repository services. We are cultivating an inclusive open source community with thoughtful governance to ensure a collaborative strategic direction. This highly interactive session demonstrated the turn-key nature of InvenioRDM with a lve installation demo, provided an update to the community about this work, described our development roadmap, present key opportunities for collaboration, use cases for this work, and support resources.
This work is supported by the CERN Knowledge Transfer Fund and over 15 participating partners including Caltech Library, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, and the US Center for Data to Health (CD2H), supported by the NIH National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences grant number U24TR002306, to help guide the cultural and technological changes necessary for data and informatics to improve research and health care.
