A CRMdig-Supported Mapping of Provenance and Process Information in Archaeological Datasets <p>Today Olle spoke&nbsp;about paradata in archaeological data papers at&nbsp;the&nbsp;<a href="">Computer Applications &amp; Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA) Nordic 2020</a>&nbsp;conference. With writing assitance from Lisa and Isto, the talk continued the exploration of&nbsp;how paradata is created and described as a part of archaeological data-management practices. In focus of&nbsp;was among other things&nbsp;how authors of data papers argue for the resuability of the datasets they've published, and how this can be thought about from the viewpoint of 'publication thresholds'. A publication threshold can be understood as&nbsp;the demarcation line that separates datasets that are considered to be publishable for the purposes pf resuse&nbsp;from those that are not,&nbsp;and which reusability arguments carry the most and the least weight in such assessments.</p> Thu, 08 Oct 2020 16:34:00 GMT 2020-10-08T16:34:00Z And every FAIR from FAIR sometimes declines? Tracking the rise of paradata to increase data sustainability <p>It is possible to argue that it is the 'R' in 'FAIR', standing for reusability, that makes the Findable, Accessible, and Interoperable worth the effort. Does it need to be, as Shakespeare writes, that every fair from fair sometime declines? What can be done to slower down the (perhaps inevitable) decline of data reusability? These multiplex questions were in focus of Olle's and Lisa's talk on the&nbsp;<a href="" title="EAA2020">European Association of Archaeologists' (EAA) 2020 conference</a>&nbsp;in late August. The premise of the talk was that the intellectual horizons of primary and secondary data usage can be to some extent merged if repository users are supplied with auxiliary paradata about the processes and tools involved in creating the data, and this premise was investigated on the basis of a pilot study of paradata in archaeological data papers. The EAA 2020 conference was most exciting and the data-papers pilot study proved promising&mdash;it will likely be further developed in future CAPTURE activities and publications.</p> Thu, 10 Sep 2020 13:26:00 GMT 2020-09-10T13:26:00Z Talk: Archiving realtime archaeological (para)data or archiving archaeological (para)data realtime? <p>Isto's talk &quot;<a href="">Archiving realtime archaeological (para)data or archiving archaeological (para)data realtime?</a>&quot; held in April 2019 at Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology Conference (CAA) in Krakow is now&nbsp;vieweable online at&nbsp;<a href=""></a>&nbsp;thanks to <a href="">Doug Rocks-Macqueen</a>&nbsp; who has been filming CAA and other archaeology&nbsp;conference&nbsp;presentations for years now and made them available on YouTube on the <a href="">Recording archaeology channel</a>. <a href="">Slides to Isto's talk</a> can be found&nbsp;at <a href=""></a>.</p> Wed, 09 Sep 2020 06:22:00 GMT 2020-09-09T06:22:00Z Choreographies and paradata <p>Processes can be usefully understood by using many&nbsp;different concepts and metaphors. Isto participated in a session in mid-August held at the joint <a href="">4S/EASST Science and technology Studies conference</a> with a focus on the notion of choreographies. The focal point of the talk was how information and data making procedures can be understood and explicated from the perspective of choreographies and what implications this has on their documentation.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 31 Aug 2020 06:43:00 GMT 2020-08-31T06:43:00Z What makes people tick when it comes to paradata? <p>In times of cancellations and re-scheduling CAPTURE has managed to&nbsp;realize two of the spring&rsquo;s key events in the last week: the project&rsquo;s inaugural Advisory board meeting and a&nbsp;joint seminar with a highly topical&nbsp;project at Uppsala University: URDAR.</p> Mon, 11 May 2020 12:40:00 GMT 2020-05-11T12:40:00Z New date for CAPTURE workshop Nov 24 <div> <p style="margin-left:0px">The workshop planned for April 20 is rescheduled to Nov 24, 2020.&nbsp;CAPTURE invites researchers and practitioners interested in research data management and documentation to a full-day workshop in Uppsala&nbsp;to discuss paradata and provenance, documentation of research data and research data creation and use in archaeology and beyond.</p> </div> <div> <p style="margin-left:0px">The workshop approaches the paradox that we might know a lot about research data in different domains but not that much about how it came into being from different perspectives relating to multi-disciplinary research on research data and documentation.
