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.
Science Europe welcomes the efforts made towards the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). In this open letter, the Governing Board of Science Europe reinforces its view that research data should be permanently, publicly, and freely available for re-use. The proposed EOSC aims to further this goal but a number of important questions still remain.
