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.
In January 2019, Science Europe released its ‘Practical Guide to the International Alignment of Research Data Management’ which has been taken up by numerous Science Europe Member Organisations. Based on their experiences, this publication features their approaches in developing and implementing data management plan (DMP) requirements. It explores challenges met by researchers, their home institutions and funding organisations, both during and after implementation of the new policies, and provides examples on how researchers can be supported in their RDM efforts.Download resource
This briefing paper aims to support decision makers at research organisations and research funders to develop new monitoring exercises or assess and improve existing processes to measure the Open Access status of publications.
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.
Text and Data Mining (TDM) helps the analysis and extraction of new insights and knowledge from vast amount of digitally-available content. It offers great potential for research, but also for the economy and society as a whole since it enables innovation. This paper gives an overview of some of the legal hurdles faced by researchers using TDM practices, flags possible action lines for research organisations, and calls for a more science-friendly EU copyright law.
