Abstract

Current status of open science in Japan and China: Policy, research data repository and management

Open science has the potential to enhance the efficiency to publish research results produced by academic institutions, such as national laboratories and universities in the world. Research results are constructed from article and research data, which are factual data, statistical data, images, sound, software, multimedia etc. Research data along with research articles in Institutional Repositories will become an integral part of library resources. Academic librarians, called data librarians, will be expected to support data repositories, including working on data management, data usage policies and data utilization. National Institute of Informatics (NII) in Japan and Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in China are promoting strongly to develop open science. In this study, institutions' approach to open science and representative organizations of data repositories will be shown. Current states of open science in Japan and China, especially research data repositories are investigated. Related work and efforts will be analyzed which is helpful for libraries to understand the needs and expected information services for open science. The national governments began preparing open science, which is sharing of documents, data, and these links. This study showed some data platform have been created in recent years, such as the following, Center for Open Data in the Humanities, Data Integration and Analysis System, Arctic Data archive System, Data ARchives and Transmission System, Social Science Japan Data Archive, Japanese Institutional Repositories Online in Japan, and Data Cloud of CAS, National Scientific Data Sharing Platform for Population and Health, National Data Sharing Infrastructure of Earth System Science, National Meteorological Information Center, China Earthquake Data Center in China.
