Science Europe Launches Framework for Discipline-specific Research Data Management
(Brussels, 18 January 2018)
Research organisations and funders increasingly require researchers to create data management plans for their work and their proposals. Although researchers acknowledge the importance of good data management, creating such plans can be a time-consuming administrative affair.
