Implementing Research Data Management Policies Across Europe: Experiences from Science Europe Member Organisations
Does your organisation want to develop requirements for data management plans (DMPs) or update existing ones?
Take a look at our latest publication to find out how to do so in three steps.
On 29 January 2019, Science Europe released its ‘Practical Guide to the International Alignment of Research Data Management’ (the RDM Guide) which has been taken up by several SE MOs.
Based on their experiences, this publication features their approaches in developing and implementing DMP requirements. It explores challenges met by researchers, their home institutions and the funding organisations, both during and after implementation of the new policies, and provides examples on how researchers can be supported in their RDM efforts.
This joint briefing paper with Knowledge Exchange informs the discussion on the funding of Research Data Management (RDM) and related infrastructures in Europe, helps raise awareness of the current challenges, and communicates opportunities for co-ordinated action to relevant stakeholders. The paper highlights that the funding of Research Data Infrastructures, enabling RDM, comes from a great variety of sources and institutions that have different responsibilities and that operate at local, national, and international levels.
