Journal research data policies

Publié le 31 juillet 2012, par Thérèse Hameau

RIN has partnered with the Centre for Research Communications, at the University of Nottingham, in a project that will shed light on the policies devised by academic publishers to promote linkage between journal articles and underlying research data. This iniative, entitled Journal Research Data (JoRD) Policy Bank, is funded by JISC as part of its Digital Infrastructure Programme ; it runs from July to December 2012.

The overarching aim of the JoRD Policy Bank project is to conduct a feasibility study into the scope and shape of a sustainable service that will collate and summarise the relevant journal policies. The project will deliver requirements and specifications for a service that will provide researchers, managers of research data and other stakeholders with an easy source of reference to understand and comply with the research data policies of journals and publishers.
