Our team, in collaboration with the LEARN Partners, develops a model for policies for RDM. These policies can be tailored by universities and research institutions according to their individual needs.
After collecting and analysing the required information and structuring the respective data, UNIVIE has prepared a first version of two documents to facilitate the development of Research Data Policies.
These guidelines serve as a basis for explaining what Research Data Management is, illustrating workflows, describing the benefits of Research Data Management, and informing about the requirements of the funding agency. Additionally, legal and ethical aspects are considered, as well as the relationship with publishers.
Our next goal is to analyse existing policies in place at selected universities and research organisations. After the conference in London, UNIVIE will publish the updated version of these two documents.
