Directions for Research Data Management in UK Universities

JISC has released Directions for Research Data Management in UK Universities.

Here's an excerpt:

This report addresses five key topics:

  • Policy development and implementation
  • Skills and capability
  • Infrastructure and interoperability
  • Incentives for researchers and support stakeholders
  • Business case and sustainability

For each topic we have included a summary of the main current issues, alongside a vision of where the sector should aim to be in five years' time. We then suggest actions for each topic, divided into 'first steps' and then longer term, more complex priorities. Readers should note that each of the five topics do raise interrelated actions, for example, a usage statistics service is flagged as a potential infrastructure solution and this issue arises again as an action area that can help to incentivise research data management and sharing.
