The DataRes Report

The Report

The final report from the DataRes Project, Research Data Management: Principles, Practices, and Prospects, is available now from the Council on Library & Information Resources.

Background

The Call for Proposals for the DataRes Symposium received an overwhelming response from a wide range of Library and Information Sciences professionals. These papers underwent a process of blind peer review and now appear along with the final report of the DataRes Project, drafted by Spencer D.C. Keralis, Director for Digital Scholarship; Shannon Stark, former Strategic Projects Librarian, Martin Halbert, Dean of Libraries; University of North Texas Libraries; and William Moen, Associate Dean for Research, University of North Texas College of Information, in the volume Research Data Management: Principles, Practices, and Prospects published by the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR).

Along with these five peer reviewed papers, the CLIR Report includes The Denton Declaration: An Open Data Manifesto developed during a workshop at the 2012 Open Access Symposium at UNT.
