Draft Tri-Agency Research Data Management Policy released

Tri-Agencies invite feedback on a draft Data Management Policy

NSERC, CIHR, and SSHRC have jointly released a draft policy concerning the management and public deposition of research data in its many forms. This policy will have direct impacts on how we all conduct research, and thus, we are all asked to provide feedback on this draft, both as individual scientists and as members of Canadian institutions and professional societies.

You can read the draft policy here.

The CSZ executive council received an e-mail from NSERC which reads (in part:)

We are pleased to inform you that the three federal research funding agencies—the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) (the agencies)—have developed a draft Tri-Agency Research Data Management Policy, which aims to support Canadian research excellence by fostering sound digital data management and data stewardship practices.

The agencies invite institutions, associations, organizations and individuals to comment on the draft policy as well on the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ). All the information needed to complete your feedback can be accessed here.

It would be much appreciated if you could share your input with us on this important topic and spread the news with your colleagues within CSZ. The agencies will be accepting feedback until August 31, 2018.

We invite our members to provide feedback directly to NSERC, CIHR, or SSHRC via the links provided in the draft document and through their university research office. (Many of you have probably already seen such a call from your institution)

In addition, we invite you to comment directly to the CSZ Executive Council as we consider the response we will make on behalf of the society.

To do so, e-mail the Communications Officer, Ken Welch.
