Final recommendations for FAIR Photon and Neutron Data Management https://pan-training.eu/materials/final-recommendations-for-fair-photon-and-neutron-data-management The present deliverable pursues the work initiated in ExPaNDS deliverable 2.2, which established a common metadata framework for FAIR data generated in Photon and Neutron (PaN) facilities. The modalities of implementation of this framework across facilities are examined and current practices and tools for metadata capture, storage and exposure are highlighted. This work is also the occasion to examine the commonalities of the framework with other initiatives developed inside and outside ExPaNDS such as the common search API, the data catalogues (ExPaNDS WP3), the EOSC discovery platforms B2FIND and OpenAire as well as the NeXus data format. It also provides the reader with guidelines on current tools and schemata available to record provenance and digital preservation information. The essence of these discussions is summarised as a list of practical recommendations at the end. expands, wp2-ExPaNDS, FAIR, data management PaN Community

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

In order to facilitate sharing of data across communities and allow collaboration between heterogeneous systems, interoperability of these vocabularies is required. In order to increase data interoperability and enable data integration, these vocabularies need to be semantically integrated with other vocabularies and their terms have to be aligned. This enables the development of a common shared vocabulary. expands, ontology, mapping, NeXus, DCAT, semantic integration, wp3-ExPaNDS PaN Community

The published ontology describes the NeXus standard, it does not define the standard. This ontology extracts information about NeXus classes and fields from NeXus nxdl definition files on the NeXus GitHub site. This project was undertaken under ExPaNDS WP3.2. The ontology is designed to fulfil several purposes. First, it creates unique identifiers for each of the NeXus fields which would normally exist only within the namespaces of the defining NeXus classes. This is the primary goal and provides PIDs for annotation and tagging. The second purpose is to allow, via separate ontologies, NeXus fields and classes to be mapped onto equivalent or related terms defined elsewhere. Finally, we hope that this ontology, when used with a tool such as Protege, will provide a useful 'NeXus Explorer' tool to gain a quick overview of NeXus with links to official NeXus documentation.

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
