NEW! February 2020: In order to make it easier for you to collaborate with your teams, we have improved the user experience of your Groups’ online space. A series of icons and labels now guide your activity and help you post messages to the group members, create and organise wiki pages, send events’ announcements, publish and organise the outputs and case statements resulting from your group’s activity and browse all the members of your Group. One new area also collects the Plenary sessions your group contributed to.

We hope that you’ll find this useful! Please do not hesitate to send your comments and suggestions to the RDA Secretariat here.

Case Statement: 
IG Established
 

General services to publish data are not available and the necessary editorial process  leading to quality assured and efficiently usable data requires resources to be quantified. At present, there is an imbalance between the capacities and functionality of existing data  centres and data repositories and the global production of scientific data. Budgets of data centres generally cover a precise scope, mostly data production of the host institution. The  WG will supply cost estimates and elaborate a business model to compensate for additional costs of publishing data in an open access environment.
