Abstract

Tracking and preserving, not to mention opening when possible, an institution’s scholarly output - be it publications or data -, is one of the many missions of libraries. They have been doing so for years, with institutional publication repositories. More recently, data repositories are emerging, boosted by data sharing requirements implemented by journals, institutions and funders. They come in different forms and colours (disciplinary, generic, institutional,…) and aim to replace journal supplementary files services.

Locating publications and datasets scattered in various places, and linking them together is not an easy task, even in the open science world we live in. Can any repository be really comprehensive and display an accurate picture of an institution’s scientific heritage? Can it contain or link to all datasets accompanying or underlying the publications?

With our research, we intend to:

  • Observe data sharing trends in publications by authors affiliated with our institution: are they sharing data more than in the past? are they sharing in supplementary files or in research data repositories? which data repositories? Are those trends comparable with data from other institutions or publishers? is there any noticeable variation between clinical, basic or dental medicine disciplines?
  • Identify publications that are missing in our repository, and seek common patterns amongst them: is there any reason or logical explanation for their absence? Are they not deposited in the repository because they cannot be made Open Access? Or on the opposite, because, being OA, authors do not feel the need to deposit them?
