The RDA Europe 4.0 has been granted an extension by the European Commission, and will be contributing to promoting the RDA work on a global level till the end of September 2020. The project supports the publication of a maximum of 30 articles in the CODATA Data Science Journal Special collection on RDA.

This Call for Papers is open to all interested applicants regardless of their geographical provenance.
