Research Data MANTRA - Library Training. Introduction During autumn and winter 2012-13, data librarians at the University of Edinburgh (Robin Rice and Anne Donnelly) led a pilot course for four University academic service librarians on Research Data Management (RDM) covering five topics involving reading assigments from the MANTRA course, reflective writing, and 2-hour face-to-face training sessions, including group exercises from the UK Data Archive (UKDA).

Research Data MANTRA - Library Training

The course was deemed successful by participants and Information Services managers, and was delivered to all the University's academic service librarians. Here we share our training for small groups of librarians anywhere who wish to gain confidence and understanding of research data management. The DIY Training Kit is designed to contain everything needed to complete a similar training course on your own (in small groups) and is based on open educational materials.

Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing - OASPA. The Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA), and the World Association of Medical Editors (WAME) are scholarly organizations that have seen an increase in the number, and broad range in the quality, of membership applications.

Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing - OASPA

Our organizations have collaborated in an effort to identify principles of transparency and best practice for scholarly publications and to clarify that these principles form part of the criteria on which membership applications will be evaluated. These criteria are largely derived from those developed by the Directory of Open Access Journals. Note that additional membership criteria may also be used by each of the scholarly organizations. The organizations will not share information about applications received.

This is the second version of a work in progress (published June 2015); the first version was made available by OASPA in December 2013. Being published - Publishing your research: choosing where to publish - All guides at RMIT University.
