Hi Tanner, I have attached the file from 20111025 and a new version created today.

Please do forward any final results from your analysis so that it may be archived if appropriate.

Hello Dave, I sent this message to your G-mail account.

I thought I should’ve cc’d to your ku.edu to cover all my bases – here’s the message below:

I’m a Masters candidate in Information Science at UT-Knoxville working as a GRA on the DataONE project with Dr. Tenopir.

I’m working on a research question regarding social networks and influence within the DataONE user community.

Poking around on the DataONE docs.dataone.org site, I found a document you’d created in October of 2011 that I believe will be helpful in exploring this topic.

It’s called “List of DataONE users and groups” and apparently was created using a python script.

The exact filename is 2011025_dataone_users.xls

I found this file under “Project Information” <https://docs.dataone.org/member-area/project-information> on the main navigation menu of the DataONE docs site.

The download URL for the document is located on this page: https://docs.dataone.org/member-area/project-information/d1_users.xls/view, along with this description:

This spreadsheet lists members of DataONE, their group memberships and mailing list memberships. It is generated by the python script located in subversion software/tools/trunk/listusers/listusers.py executed with the command: python listusers.py -x file_name

I’m interested in this file as a view of historic membership of the DataONE community, but I’m also interested in re-creating the file to reflect current membership on the docs.dataone.org site.

I’m working with Chad Mitchell, another Masters candidate and research assistant at
UT-Knoxville.

He has some experience with python and I’m curious as well – if it’s possible for you to share, we’d like to learn how to generate a new file reflecting current membership.

Is this something that we or someone on the Dev team would have access to?

Barring re-creating your methods, we’d appreciate if you could supply us with a 2012 version of the d1_users.xls file.

Thanks for any help,

Tanner

Comments from Amber Budden Concerning "Policy" for doc.dataone.org Access

Note: I am summarizing comments from Dr. Budden here. I am not posting verbatim. Pertinent details from message are presered in header only:

From: Amber E Budden
Sent: Wednesday, November 14, 2012 1:58 PM
To: Jessel, Tanner Monroe
Subject: Re: docs.dataone access

no official documentation on who has access and who does not
no real ‘policy’ per se but
recognition such a policy might be beneficial

general guidelines:
anyone doing work for us should have access to the site.

  • leadership team
  • employees
  • WG members
  • students
  • postdocs
  • interns
  • etc.

As of this correspondence, except for interns, people who transition out of DataONE do not have access taken away, according to Budden.

DataONE retains ability to control access to specific materials:

  • (sensitive) documents that are for the Leadership Team only.
  • “culture of open science” dissuades expanding to other folders
  • exception: Anyone can become a member of our DataONE Users Group (DUG); therefore, DUG members are not granted access to Working Group materials to prevent viewing “without any context.”
  • ple transition out of DataONE we have not been restricting their access, with the exception of interns.

Good afternoon Amber,

I’m working on a research question related to network analysis of the DataONE community.

Do you happen to know if documentation exists on the docs.dataone.org site pertaining to criteria for membership in the docs.dataone.org community?

The reason I’m asking you is I remembered you’d set up permissions for me on the site.

So, I’m assuming you’re the “gatekeeper” and would be the best person to ask about who is granted access.

Thanks for any help on this,

Tanner

Discipline Classification Survey Instrument & Informed Consent

Hi Dr. Allard,

Here is an attempt at a survey instrument for discipline classification, two sections and 8 questions total.

Section I includes questions about role and work environment.

Questions 1 and 2 derived from Arsev’s PhD dissertation (8 primary subject disciplines; 11 work settings).

Question 3, current job titles, is synthesized from the actual job titles of 284 DataONE.org members’ linkedIN profiles "Job Title" section, that I aggregated and merged into 17 main classifications. I expect the list could be honed further; or expanded, I would love to use the U.S. Census Bureaus list of Job Titles but I think people would get frustrated finding their desired title out of so many options, then quit the survey.

Of the options I provided, I am concerned about "Director" and "Manager;" "Research Fellow" and "Post Doctoral Researcher" and "Research Associate / Assistant." Perhaps I don’t understand these well enough.

Question 4 and Question 5 are about total career and "in discipline" career.

Section II contains demographics – credentials and degrees first, plus year obtained, and finally age / gender.

"Education" and "Computer Science" include special degrees – Doctor of Education, Education Specialist, and Doctor of Engineering, respectively. I don’t know if you want these homogenized as "Doctorate" or not.

There is an "other" in case there is a problem where a respondent does not see what they expect.

Let me know what the next steps are and if you have any questions.

Thanks,

Tanner

Test 3: Network Visualization with NESCENT GeoPhyloBuilder

Hi Chad,

FYI because it’s cool, and also because I want to note it for future possible use on the network visualization project.
