Title Towards the interoperable data environment for facilities science
Abstract The research enabled by national and international photon and neutron source facilities makes a key contribution to the modern scientific community supporting thousands of researchers around the world to explore and understand the structure of materials. In this chapter, the authors describe the characteristics of facilities science with a distinct common research lifecycle which requires the provision of facility-based centralized IT infrastructure and data management platforms. The chapter then considers how the nature of facilities science is changing and what opportunities this brings for a more cohesive approach to data management. It then goes on to consider investigation research objects and to formalize the aggregation of related and contextual information which is important for re-use of research outputs by those who were not directly involved in the original experiment. Finally, there is consideration of what infrastructure can support the use of investigation research objects.
