Workshop Morning 2: ReDBox and Mint Workshop 1: Research Data Management for your Organisation
ReDBox and Mint Workshop 1: Research Data Management for your Organisation
Queensland Cyber Infrastructure Foundation, Australia
ReDBox is Australia’s leading research metadata management solution. The ReDBox and cloud enabled ReDBox Lite are open source research data solutions providing organisations with the ability to describe research data and publish metadata to systems such as Research Data Australia (RDA) and DataCite. The Mint component of ReDBox provides name authority services to ReDBox that allow for the correct identification of parties (people and groups), activities and controlled vocabularies. Working together, the ReDBox and Mint software is one of the next generation of institutional repositories that fits within a national and international data sharing ecosystem.
Aimed at Data Librarians and Repository Managers this workshop will provide an overview of ReDBox and Mint. It will show how researchers can describe data, creating rich descriptions of data collections that link it into the research data ecosystem. It will demonstrate how ReDBox interfaces with DataCite and the Australian National Data Service (ANDS) RDA portal. It will also show how ReDBox supports your organisation keeping track of where research data resides. We will include an exploration of the ReDBox Data Management Planning Tool and Data Collection Self-Submission capabilities available in the researcher dashboard and how they integrate with the core metadata management features.
