Research Data Network

Research Data Network

Welcome to the Research Data Network. Jisc set up this site for you to exchange information on research data management and related topics within the UK research information management sector.

We have now produced a research data management toolkit

Go there to have your questions about RDM answered and leave us some feedback if you think part of the kit needs updating, or additional resources. You can find hot topics, links from the research data lifecycle and even access your local RDM pages from our toolkit:

We still want to collect a body of useful resources, help people share up to minute developments, practices and develop new ideas, but the toolkit will be the place to do that. This network site will be closed by end 2018. Most of the material has already been migrated into the toolkit, but our working group will review what's here before closure.

Also, if you are interested, you could get involved with our working group, just get in touch using the free text in the comment form:

Additional York event

Jisc Sponsored DPC Briefing Day - From Planning to Deployment: Digital Preservation and Organisational Change

Sponsored by Jisc and open to all, this free to attend day-long conference will explore the skills necessary to ensure that digital preservation solutions can be acquired and tailored to purpose. Using the Jisc-funded Research Data Shared Service as a case study in supporting institutions to move from digital preservation plans to actions, it will profile the skills and systems required and show how digital preservation can not only benefit from these skills, but also contribute something meaningful about resilience and longevity for those planning institutional infrastructure. It will also provide a neutral forum where those involved in capturing digital preservation requirements and can talk directly and without prejudice about the challenges they face and explore ways in which they can be turned into solutions.

This event will precede the Jisc hosted Research Data Network meeting, also in York on 27-28th June.

Registration open now. PLACES LIMITED SO DON'T DELAY.

Registration is free and open to all. There is a limit of 3 places per DPC member (incl. consortia and membership organisations) and these will be available on a 'first come, first served' basis. Additional registrations will be accepted but will be placed on the wait list until registration closes a week before the event, at which time they will be distributed equally amongst members. The event is expected to fill up quickly, so early registration is recommended. If you find that you are unable to register because the event is full please contact me and I'll try and fit you in.
