Announcing a new transdisciplinary Glossary for research data management
Research Data Canada (RDC) in partnership with the international Consortia Advancing Standards in Research Administration Information (CASRAI) is pleased to announce the launch of a PILOT for a new interactive Glossary containing 500+ draft terms and definitions to support work in the field of research data management. The glossary is publicly available under a Creative Commons Attribution Only license (CC-BY) at
The Glossary is meant to be a practical reference for individuals and working groups concerned with the improvement of research data management, and as a meeting place for further discussion and development of terms. Each term has a unique identifier and a URL that can be used as a tool to enhance reading comprehension of documents by hyperlinking terms to their definition. The aim is to create a stable and sustainably governed glossary of community accepted terms and definitions, and to keep it relevant by maintaining it as a ‘living document’ that is upd! ated when necessary. The URL for each term contains a link to a discussion page to complete the feedback loop with the community of users. The glossary is developed and maintained by RDC's Standards & Interoperability Committee (RDC-SINC) in collaboration with CASRAI.
