The impact of the adoption:
The RDA/WDS Publishing Data Cost Recovery for Data Centres IG provided the OECD-GSF project with a substantial overview on income streams for data repositories. This was consolidated and expanded in the project and the in-depth economic analysis that was carried out within the project. The final OECD policy report has been written for, and provided to, research policy-makers and includes a number of recommendations that will help improve the strategic planning and support for data repositories. Several hundred copies of the report have been distributed via the OECD policy networks and it can be openly downloaded from the OECD iLibrary, which is a vital resource for those working in the research policy domain. The study results have been presented to national policy-makers and funders in open science events in a number of European and Asian countries and have also been included in several OECD flagship publications and international conferences relating to the digital economy. Feedback has been positive and ministries and funding agencies from several OECD countries have reported that they find the report useful and are implementing its recommendations.
