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.
Research organisations and funders increasingly ask researchers to create Data Management Plans for their work and proposals. A lack of standardisation means that these can be time-consuming to create and difficult to compare and evaluate. Science Europe presents a framework for the creation of domain-specific protocols that can be used as standardised templates, reducing the administrative burden on both researchers, research organisations, and funders.
