"Funding research data management and related infrastructures" - a Science Europe & Knowledge Exchange report

This briefing paper presents the results of the joint activity, detailing the approach and main outcomes of the study. Responsible Research Data Management (RDM) is a pillar of quality research. In practice good RDM requires the support of a well-functioning Research Data Infrastructure (RDI). One of the challenges the research community is facing is how to fund the management of research data and the required infrastructure. Knowledge Exchange and Science Europe have both defined activities to explore how RDM/RDI are, or can be, funded. Foodie - Farm-Oriented Open Data In Europe.

Data is out of beta

We’re extremely happy with all the great datasets people have been submitting, and we now think that the product has reached the level of maturity where it has all the features people need to publish their research data online. If you haven’t heard of Mendeley Data before, it’s a new product that allows anyone who has data from experiments to publish it online and get a DOI for it so that it is citable.

We launched the beta version 6 months ago. We’ve released many new features over those months, in fact we’ve had 80 releases. DCMI Home: Dublin Core® Metadata Initiative (DCMI)
