The purpose of this study is to derive the detailed elements of each RDM function that can be applied to the development of research data management system in Geoscience field in Korea. Eight institutions related to RDM services were analyzed to achieve the research purpose. As a result of the analysis, 80 detailed elements of Geoscience RDM function were derived, and a survey was conducted to domestic experts to verify the derived details. As a result, 80 RDM functional details for Geoscience are presented in order of importance. The elements presented can be presented as functional details in the establishment and operation of RDM services in the field of Geoscience in research institutes or university libraries in Korea.

본 연구는 국내에서 Geoscience 분야 연구데이터 관리 시스템 개발에 적용할 수 있는 RDM 기능별 세부요소의 도출을 목적으로 하였다. 연구 목적 달성을 위해 RDM 서비스와 관련된 8개의 기관을 분석하였다. 분석한 결과, Geoscience RDM 기능의 80개 세부요소가 도출되었으며, 도출된 세부요소를 검증하기 위하여 국내 전문가를 대상으로 설문조사를 수행하였다. 조사 결과, Geoscience 분야를 위한 80개의 RDM 기능별 세부요소가 중요도 순으로 제시되었다. 제시된 요소는 국내의 연구 기관 또는 대학도서관에서 Geoscience 분야의 RDM 서비스 구축 및 운영 시 기능별 세부요소로 제시될 수 있으며 순위에 따라 중요도를 판단할 수 있는 참고자료가 될 수 있을 것이다.
