    I sincerely thank Future Learn for this comprehensive enlightening training. The first step -the most difficult one- on the RDM way is more clear and performable for me now.

  • "With busy people, this can be more effective to do face-to-face than by email" I think this face to face interactions accelerate the process rather than waiting an e-mail.

    The article is very useful to overview of the RDM strategy from three case studies. It is really good to have some useful tools to get RDM practices.

    Actually I like all the summary graphs that are given at the end of each week. Simple, clear but comprehensive for the module. Congrats to the designer.

  • This tool is very useful and clear, great!

  • The data that currently we have only is saved and stored. Regarding this kind of bulk data, there is no need to have a repository in the mentioned structure. On the other hand, we have repository planning for the discipline-specific data that has to be cured and operated in a trusted/certified repository.

    There are hundreds of "social science" data...

  • R3data is a very useful platform to reach data repositories easily using keywords and functional filters.

  • @WinnieSchats I hope to catch up the schedule to the end of this week :)

    During these corona days, I am happy to finish Week 3 even still one week behind the schedule. Applauses and thanks go to the FutureLearn for this great platform. Thanks a lot :) <3

  • We are planning an RDM training session with a dedicated slot at the National HPC Conference in June. These training resources will help us very much to define a frame. CODATA seems different from the other training resources due to hard and impressive RDM schools.

  • Regarding my quick review as a newbie at RDM, I can say that Bath has a more complete page for RDM. Utrecht has also a comprehensive page and the IT explanation for the tools and services is very useful for the researchers.

  • That is what I need to understand exactly - community/discipline-specific research data. Thanks for your sharing @BoudewijnvandenBerg

  • @SVenkataraman thanks, that is more clear now.

  • @SVenkataraman yea that is very important and I can feel my free wings :)

    I need to have collect detailed requirements about desired services both for generic usages and for community demanded. Good communication and focused awareness should be provided between all stakeholders immediately.

  • Since there is no button for the level "0", I consider the RDM level is on a very early stage even for the gap analysis :)

  • Since we have such a long way on RDM, using RISE is easy and I am not surprised with the spider of mine.

  • I am not familiar with RISE but it is clear to define gaps using RISE.

  • The relation between activities and services is seen clearly throughout the data lifecycle.

  • Thanks a lot, I am sure that Genova's fabulous experience will help us too much.

  • The current incentives rely for researchers to support publications and sharing them through open repositories. Creating DMP and sharing of research data should be also supported and encouraged through the incentives also.

  • Useful practice let me think about the challanges again after the inspected case studies.

  • Thanks to the case studies take part here and I can see the RDM view successfully in these universities. The situation is also complicated for those organisations having more than one hat; making research directly through thematic institutions and e-Infras and support research through funding mechanisms and project grants. So, RDM is complicated for that case...

  • It is very useful to define the supports by given data stewards and I think the request form is one of the best practical ways to reach data stewards.

  • Regarding the current version of TUBITAK Open Science Policy, RDM takes part as a recommended issue and there is no direct relation between incentive mechanisms and RDM. It is clear that we have to plan, document and manage research data but the responsibilities and roles need to be forced directly by funders and policymakers.

  • In general, I am familiar with the main concept in theory and hope to apply this concept to a thematic cluster such as astronomy. The starting point is to prepare a DMP for the national observatory.

  • Thank you for this useful guide.

  • Hi Sara, I know you are so busy and thank you for all that sharing. I have already started to work on RDM and checked many issues such as DMPoline and so on. There are incredible materials and know-how, thanks to open science :)

  • Hello, I am Burcu and I have been working to support research at high performance and data center in Ankara, Turkey. Almost more than 20 years I have experienced about research eco-system starting from doing research directly (physics PhD) to managing e-infrastructure for research. The RDM is a very critical and important subject due to our obligation about...
