Universities and research institutions are becoming increasingly interested in collecting and providing access to datasets produced at their institution that do not fall within the scope of other discipline-based, or government repositories. The aim of this Interest Group is to develop a set of good practices for managing research data archived in the university context. The scope of the topic will be limited to the data generated in universities and research institutions and the role of institutional repositories and libraries as agents of the institutional data management.

Re: [rda-tailresearchdata-ig][rda-libresearchdata][software-source-code-ig] [rda-tailresearchdata-ig][rda-libresearchdata][software-source-code-ig] A new(?) aspect of software and the FAIR principles

by Andras Holl

Dear Dan, I can accept if it is outside of the scope of the group. But because there was no more appropriate group, a sent the message to some groups I am member of. If I can find enough people interested, we might decide to start another group. Andras ----- Original Message ----- From: "Katz, Daniel S" <***@***.***> To: "holl andras" <***@***.***>

Dear Robin, Rolf, Thank you for Your suggestions. I agree with both of You. My hope is that there would be enough people interested in my suggestion, to draft some initial document on the question. All comments, suggestions, additions - like yours - are wellcome! With kind regards, Andras ----- Original Message ----- From: "Robin Lindley Ruggaber" <***@***.***> To: "holl andras" <***@***.***>

Re: [rda-tailresearchdata-ig][rda-libresearchdata][software-source-code-ig] A new(?) aspect of software and the FAIR principles

by Robin Ruggaber

Andras, I agree that software ingesting, processing, producing, and archiving should adhere to FAIR principles. What seems questionable is the use of “especially open source” in 2 & 4. Commercial software, especially that software not orginiating from informed by communities committed to preservation and open content, is just as likely to not meet FAIR principles. There was a time when we would not buy software unless we had access to the source code. That vulnerability persists in my opinion especially software dealing with data. Regards, Robin

A new(?) aspect of software and the FAIR principles

by Andras Holl

  Dear Colleagues, I would like to share some thoughts on FAIR principles and software. I do not know how or whether it fits the scope of this interest group. Andras Holl I think there is an other, maybe neglected aspect of the relation of FAIR principles and software. Software should not only be FAIR itself, but should support FAIR-ness: let us call it FAIR-supporting or FAIR-friendly.

Future of the RDA group, Long Tail of Research Data

by Kathleen Shearer

Dear members of the RDA Long Tail of Research Data Interest Group, The Long Tail Interest Group was launched in 2013. Since its inception, the Interest Group has been a valuable mechanism to support discussions related to managing long tail data and has met regularly at the RDA plenaries to discuss topics of interest and address shared challenges. It is one of the most populated groups in RDA (276 members) and has produced a number of outcomes: Good practice for discovery of long tail data (2014)

Long tail data: applications for SDGs? SciDataCon Abstracts due Monday, 6/25

by Lindsay Barbieri

Dear Colleagues, I recall that there was a question as to whether the Long tail of research data IG was going to continue after P11, and I am curious to know whether there are plans for an IG Meeting at RDA P12? Also, I would like to kindly draw your attention to an additional opportunity for engagement during International Data Week: If you work with Long tail research data with applications that pertain to the Sustainable Development Goals, please consider sharing your work to session #207, Sustainable
