Research data management in Turkey: perceptions and practices

Aydınoğlu, Arsev Umur
Purpose - The massive increase in research data being produced nowadays has highlighted the importance of research data management (RDM) to science. Research data not only have to be cost effective but also reliable, discoverable, accessible, and reusable. In this regard, the purpose of this paper is to investigate the perceptions and practices of Turkish researchers on the subject of RDM.

DOĞAN, GÜLEDA; TAŞKIN, ZEHRA; Aydınoğlu, Arsev Umur (2020-04-29)
Research data management is an important topic for funding agencies, universities and researchers. In this context, the main aim of this study is to collect preliminary information for Aperta, which is being developed by the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey, to fulfil the following goals: determine the research data management awareness levels of researchers in Turkey; understand current research data management practices in their research environments; and find out their experiences ...
Data Management in Astrobiology: Challenges and Opportunities for an Interdisciplinary Community
Aydınoğlu, Arsev Umur; Malone, Jim (2014-06-01)
Data management and sharing are growing concerns for scientists and funding organizations throughout the world. Funding organizations are implementing requirements for data management plans, while scientists are establishing new infrastructures for data sharing. One of the difficulties is sharing data among a diverse set of research disciplines. Astrobiology is a unique community of researchers, containing over 110 different disciplines. The current study reports the results of a survey of data management p...
Data mining analysis of economic indicators of countries
Güngör, Erdem; Yozgatlıgil, Ceylan; Department of Statistics (2020-8)
Data Mining is becoming a famous analysis day by day to reveal the hidden information within big data. In the study, we use data mining techniques on the economic indicators of the countries. The four data mining techniques are to be implemented on the dataset. Making homogenous groups of the countries whose economic characteristics are similar are obtained by the Clustering Algorithm. After the clustering algorithm is performed, we pass to Association Rule Data Mining to investigate the most exported produ...
Environmental Researchers' Data Practices: An Exploratory Study in Turkey
Allard, Suzie; Aydınoğlu, Arsev Umur (2012-01-01)
This qualitative exploratory study probes the knowledge and attitudes of information science and environmental researchers in Turkey towards scientific data and information particularly in regards to sharing and preservation. Ten environmental scientists and two information scientists were interviewed. Results reveal that research data is stored mostly on personal computers. This raises two issues: organizational and technological sustainability. Environmental scientists in Turkey do not engage in data-inte...
Pattern extraction by using both spatial and temporal features on Turkish meteorological data
Goler, Işıl; Yazıcı, Adnan; Karagöz, Pınar; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
With the growth in the size of datasets, data mining has been an important research topic and is receiving substantial interest from both academia and industry for many years. Especially, spatio-temporal data mining, mining knowledge from large amounts of spatio-temporal data, is a highly demanding field because huge amounts of spatio-temporal data are collected in various applications. Therefore, spatio-temporal data mining requires the development of novel data mining algorithms and computational techniqu...
