The Bridge of Data Project Objectives


Open Research Data (ORD) is one of the emerging trends for researchers across the globe. However, it has to be stressed that the level of implementation and awareness of ORD varies between countries. Many initiatives have been created in Polish scientific institutions to support the process of opening publications. These are mainly Open Access (OA) repositories, implementing the so-called green road of OA. However, only a few universities in Poland offer their researchers essential tools and substantive support for opening research data. The Gdańsk University of Technology has created several tools and services supporting the open sharing of scientific research results, including scientific publications and research data. The Bridge of Data project was established to support researchers in their activities regarding different Open Science layers. The project is unique in this part of Central and Eastern Europe. It involves three Pomeranian universities: Gdańsk University of Technology (leader), the University of Gdańsk, and the Medical University of Gdańsk. The chapter aims to present the Bridge of Data project’s assumptions and results, which provides both an open data repository and a range of additional services for researchers who want to share their research results openly. Project assumptions will be presented along with their genesis and the result of their implementation. The technical aspects of creating IT tools (data repository, data analysis on a supercomputer, platforms for scientific journals and conferences) will be highlighted. The Open Science Competence Center, its tasks and the manner of their implementation will also be discussed. An important aspect discussed in the chapter will also be the cooperation of various university teams to create tailored tools and services. These groups include librarians who design technical solutions and support services, IT specialists building IT platforms and tools, and researchers representing various scientific disciplines. The last group enters data into the repository and helps adapt the functionality of the tools to users’ requirements. Based on an analysis of the functionality of the IT tools and based on reports on the activities of the Competence Center, a solution model will be drawn up that can be compared with other implementation cases of similar tools and services.
