A Decade of Research Data Management at the University of Edinburgh: Looking Back, Looking Forward

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review

Abstract

The chapter examines how research data management (RDM) policy and service developed at the University of Edinburgh, comprising three sections. First, the current shape of the service is examined, covering all of the service components and their utility to researchers in turn. Second, the service beginnings and foundations are laid out, such as the 2011 university RDM Policy and how this represented a strong institutional commitment to RDM, and how the first RDM Roadmap addressed policy fulfilment through service rollout. A look at governance, funding, and organisational structure completes this contextual background. Third, strategic directions are explored, focusing on the gaps and achievements of the most recent completed roadmap and a preview of a newly modernised RDM policy and its upcoming implementation.
