Communication Toolkit for Implementing Effective Data Practices released

A coalition of primarily U.S. library and higher education groups is publishing a toolkit to support effective adoption of "data practices" such as persistent identifiers and data management plans. This communication toolkit draws upon the outcomes of a 2019 conference, “Implementing Effective Data Practices: A Conference on Collaborative Research Support,” convened by the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), California Digital Library (CDL), Association of American Universities (AAU), and Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) and sponsored by the US National Science Foundation (NSF). The overall goal of the conference was to explore the ways that scholarly communications stakeholders can assist in implementing a more connected ecosystem for research data outputs. A set of recommendations to support the broad adoption of persistent identifiers (PIDs) and machine-actionable data management plans (DMPs) was summarized in the final report. More also here
