Submitting Final RDA Recommendations – National PID Strategies WG

  • Creator
  • #98553

    Dear Co-chairs
    Thank you very much for the ongoing work of the National PID Strategies WG. This is just a reminder that you are expected to submit your WG’s final Recommendation in 5 months’ time, by 10 June 2023.
    To submit your Recommendation, please send the following to the RDA Secretariat (enquiries[at]
    * The draft Recommendation
    * A short description / abstract
    * A brief impact statement (see the pages of Endorsed Recommendations for examples, or Secretariat can provide examples).
    UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) (An explanation of how the Recommendations contribute to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). See here for a list of the 17 goals and please specify which goals, if any, are relevant to the Group’s Recommendations.)
    * Authorship information. Please note that we usually assume that the WG has been a contributor to the Recommendation, in addition to the named authors. However, you can also nominate the WG as the sole author of the Recommendation.
    * Licensing information: All RDA Recommendations are under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) and all authors, generators, contributors and users of RDA Recommendations are governed by these licensing regulations.
    * Further metadata: version, publication date, other metadata that you would like to provide.
    * Maintenance and retirement plan (e.g. the maintenance going forward will be taken over by an Interest Group, maintenance will be adopted by an external organisation, etc.)
    * The names of two adopters who are willing to provide some information about the adoption of the Recommendation (the names can be provided during the community review period, see below).
    The Secretariat will then mint a DOI for the Recommendation, based on the information you provide, and will start the endorsement process, which starts with a 1-month community review period for the Recommendation. During this period, we ask the co-chairs to monitor and respond to any comments made by the community.
    You can find more information about Recommendations and their endorsement process here:
    Please let your Secretariat or TAB liaison (both cc’d) know if you have any specific questions about producing your Recommendation, or if you wish to publish any further Outputs of your WG.
    Thank you very much.
    RDA Secretariat
