The RDA community is invited to comment on a variety of documents while they undergo a community review phase as part of their endorsement or recognition by RDA. These documents include:

  • Working Group (WG) Case Statements and Interest Group (IG) Charters that outline the scope and expected outputs of a group at the start of the group’s life.
  • RDA Recommendations, the official, endorsed results of RDA WGs and RDA’s flagship outputs. They are adoptable results, e.g. specific tools, code, best practices, or standards that will promote data sharing and exchange and increase data-driven innovation.
  • RDA Supporting Outputs, useful solutions produced by RDA WGs or IGs.
  • Other documents produced by RDA task forces or other RDA initiatives

Usually, those documents stay open for community review for a month. They are listed in the "RfC box" on the home page.

Below you can find a list of the documents currently under community review.
