Notes by Lynn Yarmey:

e-Lab Notebooks OMERO - image curation (http://openmicroscopy.org/site)


relationship with DMPs?

issues:

people keep notebooks for many different purposes, have separate styles xtracing something from a notebook is dicey to start - so be clear on goal example: patent suit, 7Mil to go through paper notebooks consideration - can you prove provenance from burned CD copy?

selection criteria:

affordability ease of use ease of access length of trial non-pharmaceutical-based needs to work for users curation components - export files, metadata standardization

Examples:

CERF (by Rescentris)

Cambridge Soft (owns ChemDraw) - downside, cost plus lots of backend infrastrcuture layers over Word and Excel cambridgesoft bought by Perk and Elmore (?)

Wiki + Google docs digital lives study found big problems with legalities in cloud agreements, no promises about longevity, security, etc.

Open Science vs. Other research approaches

costs - how to compete with Amazon in terms of cost feasibility

Phil recommends cloud for virtual machines for pulling out the data from boxes under the desk

need applications that are compatible cloud-based applications

additional criteria

  • uptake
  • backend maintenance (in addition to production archival copy)
  • files on disk

Issue - as soon as you export from a software, you are creating a representation that isn’t usually round-tripable. So what exactly are you archiving? Tension between archival version and actual work
