What is RDA Node Slovenia?

RDA Node Slovenia is a national RDA node established to act as a long-term central contact point between the Research Data Alliance and data practitioners, funding organizations, research agencies and other relevant stakeholders in Slovenia.

RDA Node Slovenia is coordinated by the Slovenian Social Science Data Archives (ADP). The RDA Node Slovenia data community was initially composed of the representatives of the Humanities (DARIAH-SI) and Linguistics (CLARIN.Si) research data infrastructures, and the University of Ljubljana. The node is, however, open for additional research data infrastructures, researchers and other interested stakeholders from Slovenia (see How to participate?). 


What are its aims?

The aims of the Node are general with some specific emphasis related to the coordination of the infrastructure development based on internationally recognised standards, e.g. CoreTrustSeal (CTS), and to the development of journal policies as one of the points in the National Action Plan that can impact the rise of data sharing culture:

  1. To foster a wide range of stakeholders across scientific domains in a diverse Slovenian data community and encourage their active engagement in this community;
  2. To represent Slovenian interests in the RDA Interest/Working groups and governing structures;
  3. To raise awareness of RDA activities, events and funding calls while encouraging active involvement of new Slovenian members in RDA activities;
  4. To promote RDA’s nationally relevant outputs, recommendations, and ICT Technical specifications in order to stimulate their adoption in the Slovenian research environment;
  5. To contribute to the implementation of the policy of open access to research data at a national level;
  6. To interact with national research funding bodies, ministries, and other relevant government officials to influence the implementation of an effective and durable open research data policy and digital research agendas;
  7. To promote and support data management best practices, standards and solutions in the Slovenian research area;
  8. To promote data citation, sharing rewards and crediting best practices amongst Slovenian publishers and stimulating the development of journal policies of research data deposit in connection to a paper publication.

RDA Node Slovenia conference: Research Data and European Open Science Cloud

A year after the opening of RDA Node Slovenia, its members will recount the achievements and address the culture of data sharing in Slovenia and Europe at an online conference. Organisers welcome researchers of all fields and all those involved in open science and research data.


Meetings with Slovenian Research Agency and the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport in February 2020

Node coordinators and member recently had two meetings with Slovenian research funders and decision makers.


RDA Node Slovenia Workshop: Research Data Management

Data management plans have become a key component of responsible data practices within the European Research Area (ERA). Data management plans support the research team in collection, analysis and publication of data, and can promote long-term preservation, reuse and access to research data. The workshop will present examples of data management plans, tools to create data management plans and processes within four Slovenian repositories that store and provide access to data.


RDA Node Slovenia Conference: Scientific Journals and Research Data

Development of open research data journal policies is outlined in the 2nd chapter of Action Plan for Implementation of National Strategy of Open Access to Scientific Publication and Research Data in Slovenia 2015–2020. This conference will introduce the foundations and results of the scientific journals working group that is part of the RDA Node Slovenia.

14 to 15
