Research data sharing is a key component of open science and continues to be driven by changes in policy. Research data management (or RDM) is encompassed by broader research management. Publishers, funders, and institutions promote the sharing of research data to encourage transparency and knowledge-sharing worldwide as well as to support new policies and Open Data initiatives.

Many libraries are eager to support data needs on their campus, but it can be daunting to take the first steps. Librarians provide advice on data sharing and storage options, proactive outreach, and have responsibility for managing the location of the institution's research data. Researchers rely on publishers and librarians to review, curate, and prepare their data for public release. With pressure being laid on the librarians and institutions from these external sources, help can be confusing and sometimes downright difficult to find. The good news is that Digital Commons Data, a flexible platform that can meet your campus’ data-sharing and storage needs, is here to help.

In this webinar we will cover:

  • Trends, drivers and benefits of research data sharing and research data management workflow
  • Challenges in tracking institutional research data and where Digital Commons Data can help
  • How to best share, organize, store data to support your researchers using FAIR data sharing practices
  • Promoting data curation and institutional data management via an institutional research data repository
  • How institutions benefit from using Digital Commons Data
