RECODE workshop: Institutional support for Open Access to research data
RECODE workshop ”Institutional support for open access to research data”
There is growing consensus that open access to research data benefits science and society. However, institutions, including universities, research associations, libraries and funders, face various challenges in making open access possible. High on the agenda of many of these institutions are the following: evaluating and maintaining the quality and trustworthiness of data; training and developing the skills of researchers and other relevant stakeholders; advocating the value of open access; and securing funding. These issues have implications for institutional processes and require some level of institutional response.
