Active DMPs for Photon and Neutron RIs https://pan-training.eu/materials/active-dmps-for-photon-and-neutron-ris This deliverable envisions an integrated aDMP system which supports the (semi-) automated generation of DMPs by maximising reuse of information generated during the research life-cycle and also aiming to support the scientists and other stakeholders by supporting information transfer. Therefore, a data model for aDMPs focusing on the integration of information that exists before a proposal is submitted and its life-cycle integration is introduced. It relates the data model also to the template created in PaNOSC. expands, wp2-ExPaNDS, DMP, data management plan, data management PaN Community

Self-evaluation Photon and Neutron RIs for FAIR data certification https://pan-training.eu/materials/self-evaluation-photon-and-neutron-ris-for-fair-data-certification This ExPaNDS project deliverable describes a FAIR self-assessment undertaken by the ten ExPaNDS partner Photon and Neutron Research Infrastructures (PaN RIs) over the three-month period July – September 2022. After reviewing selected examples of existing FAIR evaluation frameworks designed to enable assessment at different levels (dataset, repository, and organisation), the report describes the evaluation approach adopted for the ExPaNDS FAIR self-assessment. As no existing framework met our specific need to focus on FAIR workflows and processes in PaN RIs, it was necessary to select, combine, and adapt existing frameworks. Supported by four underlying guiding principles, our approach drew heavily on the FAIR Principles, the RDA FAIR Data Maturity Model, and FAIRsFAIR’s CoreTrustSeal+FAIRenabling framework. Post-evaluation feedback from ExPaNDS partners indicated that they found the FAIR self-assessment a useful and valuable exercise for understanding current levels of FAIRness at their facilities and for articulating what implementations they have in progress or planned to support FAIR in future. A key output of the ExPaNDS FAIR evaluation is the collected self-assessment reports from the ten partner facilities. These reports are published openly and in full as part of the deliverable. In addition, the self-assessments are supplemented with some high-level observations on the state of the FAIR journey across the ExPaNDS facilities.

Virtual Infrastructure for Scientific Analysis (VISA) Workshop https://pan-training.eu/materials/virtual-infrastructure-for-scientific-analysis-visa-workshop We invite you to view our workshop – hosted jointly by ExPaNDS and PaNOSC! VISA provides remote data analysis services giving access to experimental data, analysis software, compute infrastructure and expert-user support (IT and Scientific). The online half-day Workshop is open to all external stakeholders (especially scientists and IT staff but not limited to). We aim to demonstrate to beamline scientists the possibilities offered by VISA for data analysis and gathering IT staff around the table to discuss about the development and further deployment of the platform. VISA has been developed at a critical time (during the COVID-19 crisis) to answer data analysis needs and allowing remote instrument control. It provides simplified access for scientists to data analysis tools, offers remote support to users from experts and allows them to remotely control their experiments with the assistance of on-site instrument scientists. VISA allows a user to use the Remote Desktop as if they were sitting in front a data treatment workstation at the host institute and embeds JupyterLab directly accessible from the same platform interface. Initially developed at the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) in Grenoble, France and further deployed in the context of PaNOSC, VISA enables the PaN research infrastructures (PaN RIs) to work together on further scientific collaborations to solve 21st century challenges. The first session of the workshop showcases the implementation of VISA at the PaN RIs through ExPaNDS and PaNOSC partner’ demos and illustrate its use for scientific users and others. The second session in the afternoon focuses on presentations on VISA development and deployment (on OpenStack and other infrastructures), paving the way for a roundtable discussion on the future of VISA: sustainability and future collaborations. Video recording (direct link to vimeo) will be available soon. VISA, expands, PaNOSC, remote data analysis services

ExPaNDS Guidance Note: Key Policy Elements within a Photon and Neutron Research Infrastructure Data Policy Framework (revised - final version) https://pan-training.eu/materials/expands-guidance-note-key-policy-elements-within-a-photon-and-neutron-research-infrastructure-data-policy-framework-revised-final-version The text of this ExPaNDS Guidance Note is extracted from ExPaNDS deliverable [D2.3: Final data policy framework for Photon and Neutron RIs](https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.5205824). The Guidance Note covers the 21 elements that comprise the final version of the ExPaNDS data policy framework. These elements fall under nine broad themes: 1. General drivers and principles 2. Roles and responsibilities 3. Scope 4. Enabling FAIR data 5. Necessary restrictions to data sharing 6. Availability of infrastructure and responsibility for costs 7. Data management planning requirements 8. Recognition and reward for data usage 9. Reporting requirements, compliance monitoring, and any possible sanctions The Guidance Note is intended as a short-form, ready-access tool for policy makers working on data policy within Photon and Neutron Research Infrastructures. For additional context around the development of the ExPaNDS data policy framework, see the D2.3 deliverable and its earlier, draft version [D2.1: Draft extended data policy framework for photon and neutron RIs](https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.4014811). data policy, expands, FAIR, wp2-ExPaNDS

Draft recommendations for FAIR Photon and Neutron Data Management https://pan-training.eu/materials/draft-recommendations-for-fair-photon-and-neutron-data-management ExPaNDS WP2 has the objective of Enabling FAIR Data, providing guidelines, recommendation and practical experience to the project and the wider PaN community on the best practise in generating FAIR experimental data for National RIs. In order for the facility to deliver experimental data “FAIR at the point of leaving the facility”, the infrastructure systems and procedures involved in the facilities experimental lifecycle should be coordinated to construct and maintain the FAIRness of that data. In particular, at each stage in the experimental lifecycle, metadata and contextual information should be collected (automatically and manually) to form as complete a record as possible of the experiment so that that data can be FAIR. In this report, we give an analysis of the metadata that should be generated and recorded at each stage of the lifecycle and consider its contribution to making that data FAIR. This delivers a prioritization which we use to determine which metadata should be collected. We use that prioritization to make a series of recommendations on the types of metadata that should be collected at each stage. These recommendations give a framework for setting standards for common metadata formats and provide a basis for assessing the FAIRness of data generated by facilities. Further work will develop these draft recommendations into our final recommendations for common metadata formats and use of metadata in practice.

ExPaNDS D2.3: Final data policy framework for Photon and Neutron RIs https://pan-training.eu/materials/expands-d2-3-final-data-policy-framework-for-photon-and-neutron-ris ExPaNDS deliverable D2.3: Final data policy framework for photon and neutron RIs, considers how data policies for research infrastructures providing photon and neutron facilities should be framed, in particular in the light of supporting open science and FAIR data. It builds on and revises the initial policy framework presented in ExPaNDS deliverable D2.1: Draft extended data policy framework for photon and neutron RIs.To produce the final, revised version of our data policy framework, ExPaNDS undertook a series of detailed consultation meetings with all ten of our partner PaN RIs. Drawing extensively on quotes from the write ups of those conversations, this report presents the themes that emerged from the consultation, focusing especially on those that featured most often and most strongly.Based on the consultation feedback, we present a revised version of the ExPaNDS data policy framework, which now proposes 21 elements for RIs to consider when formulating data policy.Overall, the consultation provided an opportunity to engage deeply in discussion with ExPaNDS partners about data policy and policy making. The consultation feedback and the level of engagement with the consultation process itself highlight ExPaNDS partners’ strong interest in data policy. There is a clear recognition that having an appropriate data policy is fundamental to supporting good research data management. While some differing views exist, ExPaNDS partners express consensus on key fundamental aspects of the data policy framework, especially the importance of a high level commitment to FAIR data. There is also the strong recognition that flexibility in a data policy framework is vital to accommodating the diversity found across national PaN RIs.As well as incorporating the final version ExPaNDS data policy framework as a key output, our report concludes with two overarching points:Data policy diversity will remain across ExPaNDS partner facilitiesData policy is a powerful and important tool for national PaN RIs.It is clear from the consultation feedback that the ExPaNDS data policy framework is already having an impact on facilities’ plans for future work, especially around ensuring that key implementations are in place to support FAIR data. Further work within ExPaNDS, for example, around PIDs, metadata, and FAIR assessment, will provide guidance to support these activities. expands, data policy, wp2-ExPaNDS
