Penultimate Draft of Report: Income Streams for Data Repositories

25 Jan 2016

Dear Colleagues, RDA-WDS Interest Group on Income Streams for Data Repositories; on behalf of the co-chairs, Ingrid Dillo, Anita de Waard and myself; cc. Domain Repositories Interest Group;
1) Penultimate Draft of Income Streams for Data Repositories
Please find attached the penultimate version of the Interest Group’s report on 'Income Streams for Data Repositories’. A draft version of this was circulated just before the RDA Plenary in Paris. We have subsequently edited this version in line with various comments and suggestions received, and we have added material derived from the SWOT analysis conducted at our session at the plenary meeting.
We would be very grateful for your final comments and suggestions on this draft no later than Start of Business on Monday 8 February.
2) Session at RDA Plenary 7, in Tokyo: OECD Global Science Forum Project on Business Models for Data Repositories
The IG will once again be running a session at the RDA Plenary in Tokyo, in collaboration with the IG on Domain Repositories. Please see the description and draft programme at
An important development is that following a proposal and presentation made in the Autumn, this work will be going forward under the auspices of the OECD Global Science Forum. One of the objectives of the session in Tokyo will be to discuss that project and provide guidance and suggestions.
For information I attach the presentation that I gave to the OECD GSF and the project proposal.
With very best wishes,
