Joining RDA as an Individual Member is free, simple and easy. All you need to do is fill in the form below and subscribe to the Research Data Alliance's Guiding Principles.
User registration is moderated, therefore your request will be approved by RDA Secretariat and your account activated within 1 business day.
If there is an RDA community set up in your country (see RDA National Groups for more information), once your account is active you will be subscribed to receive information and news from that group. If you wish to unsubscribe, you can easily do that by editing the settings in your profile.
Given the recent high spam activity, the registrations will be reviewed with extra vigilance. To expedite the approval, we ask you to include an institutional e-mail, bio and photo, and we are extending the approval time. If we are unable to verify the identity of an account, it may not be approved, and may be blocked. All account applications need to adhere to RDA's Guiding Principles and Code of Conduct.
