CSIRO’s Data Access Portal

What we have done:
Data Access Portal (DAP), data.csiro.au
• Developed by CSIRO Information Management &
Technology (IM&T) and research partners
• Secure repository
• Enables external publication but options for other access
• Self serve and enterprise wide
• Options for searching, retrieving and downloading

What can the DAP mean to CSIRO
• linking of data to publications
• recognition of data producers- attribution statements, data
citations in same way as publications- DOIs for public
• deposit of data to preserve it
• discovery and reuse of data- exposed to multiple discovery
points, web services
• management of data
• sharing of data with collaborators, internally and externally,
nationally and internationally- flexible access and
permissions framework, choice of licences

What worked?
• DOIs opened ears and eyes. They resonate!
• DAP was built for self service but we needed to incorporate help
with metadata creation and data preparation into our support
• Catching people at the right point in their data/research lifecycle
• The project is current or very nearly
– people quickly move on to the next project
– no time or resources to revisit
– IP/ownership issues become more difficult to unravel
– data format/structure issues harder to resolve
• There are motivating factors eg. funder requirements, journal
policies, discipline data sharing culture

What’s next?
Enhancing the system
• Object (file) level metadata, discovery, downloads
• Support for larger collections – numbers of files + overall size
• Linking to other data repositories within CSIRO
• And reviewing DOI business rules so that ALL CSIRO data has
the capability to be cited easily regardless of location
• Data collections as reportable outputs
• Publications and data links in media releases, news items
• News items on data reuse
• Google Analytics reports to notify top-viewed, top-downloaded

What’s next? Making connections
• Data + Software + publications + visualisations +
• Collections – presenting data as an organisational asset
that reflects our research strengths
• Integrating provenance
• Linking to internal systems- eg staff profiles, research
profiles, connecting data outputs to research activities
• Connect the data to HPC eg Pulsar pipeline
• Increasing auto ingest
• Feeds into other external portals eg TERN

What’s next?
BIG data:
Linking DAP to CASDA
 CSIRO ASKAP Science Data Archive
 CASDA will become the primary point for storing,
managing, sharing and using processed ASKAP data
 Project to expose CASDA data via the DAP
