Research Data Network

Welcome to the Research Data Network. This is a site to exchange information on research data management and related topics within the UK research information management sector. We hope that the site can build a body of useful resources, help people share up to minute developments, practices and develop new ideas.

Let's jump right in!

Data Management Plans—Funder policy compliance

This is a UK community initiative inspired by the DART project currently being coordinated by Mary Donaldson from Glasgow University.

The first phase of the project involves developing rubrics to be used when evaluating data management plans against UK funder requirements. The first funders to be addressed are:

  • All RCUK
  • CRUK
  • Wellcome
  • NIHR
  • H2020,
  • A rubric for the 'ideal' non-funded DMP

Initially these will be used to provide feedback to researchers before submission of their DMPs to the funders in question.
