What is your opinion on research data management?

How do researchers in the Netherlands think about research data management? The NationalCoordination Point Research Data Management (LCRDM) is doing a national survey and is looking for respondents.

What is your opinion on research data management (RDM)? How do you deal with the RDM requirements of research funders and your own research institute? Is RDM part of your daily activities as a researcher? Do you need any technical facilities? Do you need (more) support?

The Logo%20LCRDMNational Coordination Point Research Data Management asks researchers to give their opinion on RDM. Your information is especially useful for the Leiden colleagues participating in the LCRDM working groups. Thank you very much in advance!

Filling in the questionnaire takes at most 10 minutes of your time. The survey closes on 15 August 2016. To the survey

National approach to data management

Logo%20LCRDMDutch parties involved in data management have joint forces in a National Coordination Point at Surf. Main goal is to allow the Netherlands to efficiently and effectively develop and implement management policy for research data. It does so by collecting and disseminating knowledge and information, bringing together the right people, facilitating existing initiatives, providing access to expertise and monitoring developments.

Five working groups will tackle these issues :

  1. Facilities and data infrastructure *
  2. Legal aspects and ownership
  3. Finance *
  4. Support
  5. Awareness *

* Working groups with representatives of Leiden University.

To collect and disseminate knowledge on research data management both a wiki and a public website have been created. More information on the National Coordination Point and its roadmap (in Dutch) is to be found on the website : https://www.lcrdm.nl/.
