Last week the Association of American Universities (AAU) and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) released their “Guide to Accelerate Public Access to Research Data” to prompt campus discussions on how their institution might improve public access to data resulting from federally funded research and open science.
The Data Curation Network applauds this milestone in a multi-year effort in which our member institutions have been actively participating. And the DCN is thrilled that we’re highlighted in the guide as a model for collaboration across institutions for providing long-term stewardship for research data.
Read the guide and join in the discussion at your institution! Also consider how membership in the Data Curation Network might help your institution accelerate public access to research data.
