    What role should a domain-specific repository play in treating code as a first class research product? [poster]

    The Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO) is a publicly accessible earth science data repository created to curate, publicly serve (publish), and archive digital data and information from biological, chemical and biogeochemical research conducted in coastal, marine, great lakes and laboratory environments. The BCO-DMO repository works closely with investigators funded through the NSF OCE Division’s Biological and Chemical Sections and Antarctic Organisms & Ecosystems. The office provides services that span the full data life cycle, from data management planning support and DOI creation, to archiving with appropriate national facilities. Recently, more and more of the projects submitted to BCO-DMO represent modeling efforts which further increase our knowledge of the chemical and biological properties within the ocean ecosystem. But, as a repository traditionally focused on observational data as a primary research output, what roles should domain-specific data repositories play in this field? Recognizing code as a first class research product, how should repositories support the discovery, access and reuse of code and software used in hypothesis driven research? We feel the time is at hand for the community to begin a concerted and holistic approach to the curation of code and software. Such strategy development should begin with asking what is the appropriate output to curate? What is the minimum metadata required for re-use? How should code be stored and accessed? Should repositories support or facilitate peer reviewing code? The answers to these questions will better inform domain-specific repositories on how to better manage code as a first class research asset in order to support the scientific community. This presentation will explore these topics, inviting discussion from the audience to advance a collective strategy.

    At domain-specific data repositories, curation that strives for FAIR principles often entails transforming data submissions to improve understanding and reuse. The Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO, https://www.bco-dmo.org) has been adopting the data containerization specification of the Frictionless Data project (https://frictionlessdata.io) in an effort to improve its data curation process efficiency. In doing so, BCO-DMO has been using the Frictionless Data Package Pipelines library (https://github.com/frictionlessdata/datapackage-pipelines) to define the processing steps that transform original submissions to final data products. Because these pipelines are defined using a declarative language they can be serialized into formal provenance data structures using the Provenance Ontology (PROV-O, https://www.w3.org/TR/prov-o/). While there may still be some curation steps that cannot be easily automated, this method is a step towards reproducible transforms that bridge the original data submission to its published state in machine-actionable ways that benefit the research community through transparency in the data curation process. BCO-DMO has built a user interface on top of these modular tools for making it easer for data managers to process submission, reuse existing workflows, and make transparent the added value of domain-specific data curation.

    With data and software increasingly recognized as scholarly research products, and aiming towards open science and reproducibility, it is imperative for today's oceanographers to learn foundational practices and skills for data management and research computing, as well as practices specific to the ocean sciences. This educational package was developed as a data science training camp for graduate students and professionals in the ocean sciences and implemented at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in 2019 and 2020. Here we provide materials for the 2020 camp which was delivered in-person during two afternoons (total of 8 hours), with two modules per afternoon. We aimed for ~40 participants per camp, with disciplines spanning Earth and life sciences and engineering. Disciplines at each table were mixed on the first afternoon but similar on the second afternoon. Contents of this package include the syllabus and slide presentations for each of the four modules: 1 "Good enough practices in scientific computing," 2 Data management, 3 Software development and research computing, and 4 Best practices in the ocean sciences. The 3rd module is split into two parts. We also include a poster presented at the 2020 Ocean Science Meeting, which has some results from pre- and post-surveys. Funding: The camp was funded by WHOI Academic Programs Office through a Doherty Chair in Education Award, with additional support from WHOI Ocean Informatics Working Group, WHOI Information Services, MBLWHOI Library, the NSF-funded Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO), and an NSF-funded XSEDE Jetstream Education Allocation TG-OCE190011. We also utilized resources from the NSF-funded Pangeo project.

    Towards Capturing Provenance of the Data Curation Process at Domain-specific Repositories

    Data repositories often transform submissions to improve understanding and reuse of data by researchers other than the original submitter. However, scientific workflows built by the data submitters often depend on the original data format. In some cases, this makes the repository’s final data product less useful to the submitter. As a result, these two workable but different versions of the data provide value to two disparate, non-interoperable research communities around what should be a single dataset. Data repositories could bridge these two communities by exposing provenance explaining the transform from original submission to final product. A subsequent benefit of this provenance would be the transparent value-add of domain repository data curation. To improve its data management process efficiency, the Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO, https://www.bco-dmo.org) has been adopting the data containerization specification defined by the Frictionless Data project (https://frictionlessdata.io). Recently, BCO-DMO has been using the Frictionless Data Package Pipelines Python library (https://github.com/frictionlessdata/datapackage-pipelines) to capture the data curation processing steps that transform original submissions to final data products. Because these processing steps are stored using a declarative language they can be converted to a structured provenance record using the Provenance Ontology (PROV-O, https://www.w3.org/TR/prov-o/). PROV-O abstracts the Frictionless Data elements of BCO-DMO’s workflow for capturing necessary curation provenance and enables interoperability with other external provenance sources and tools. Users who are familiar with PROV-O or the Frictionless Data Pipelines can use either record to reproduce the final data product in a machine-actionable way. While there may still be some curation steps that cannot be easily automated, this process is a step towards end-to-end reproducible transforms throughout the data curation process. In this presentation, BCO-DMO will demonstrate how Frictionless Data Package Pipelines can be used to capture data curation provenance from original submission to final data product exposing the concrete value-add of domain-specific repositories.

    To ensure that resources designed to teach skills and best practices for scientific research data sharing and management are useful, the maintainers of those materials need to evaluate and update them to ensure their accuracy, currency, and quality. This paper advances the use and process of outside peer review for community resources in addressing ongoing accuracy, quality, and currency issues. It further describes the next step of moving the updated materials to an online collaborative community platform for future iterative review in order to build upon mechanisms for open science, ongoing iteration, participation, and transparent community engagement.
