ABSTRACT

The rapid growth of information technologies and data networks has increased the volume of data generated from scholarly research and the possibilities of re-using and sharing such data. However, there is a serious problem of management and sharing of research data due to the lack of facilitating policies and supporting infrastructure. In particular, few data repositories exist that support systematic collection and sharing of research data in the humanities. In this regard, the Korea Research Memory (KRM) established by the Korea Research Foundation is a rare exception. The purpose of this research is to present specific processes and strategies that can facilitate the data collection, reuse and preservation through the KRM using task analysis and source document gathering as main focal points. In addition, in order for the effective collection and sharing of research data, the following recommendations are proposed: 1) the need for the adoption of data management plan related policies that govern the collection and sharing of research data generated from publicly funded research projects, 2) the need for training and support services for individual researchers and research institutes, 3) the need for training data specialists, and 4) the citation scheme and structure designed for research data.
