Good Research Data Management (RDM) is a key component of research integrity and reproducible research. Consequently, funding bodies, governments, research institutions and other agencies have emphasised the value and importance of good data management. However, discussions about data management and sharing are sometimes limited to librarians, data professionals, or researchers who are already passionate about data stewardship and open science. In order to implement good RDM practice within research communities, it is essential to effectively engage with all researchers who produce and re-use data. 

 

This group will exchange best practices on how to effectively engage with researchers about research data and develop resources to help various research organisations increase engagement with their research communities.

 

The motivation behind this group is to build social bridges that enable open sharing and re-use of data, a goal that is fully aligned with the RDA mission. To achieve cultural change, researchers, who are the key stakeholders involved in data production and re-use, must be engaged with the topics of data management and sharing. The activities of this group will help increase engagement with diverse research communities across institutions, disciplines, and specialties.
