Today the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and the Data Curation Network (DCN) jointly submitted a response to NIST’s request for comments on the Research Data Framework (RDaF), version 1.5. This version of the Framework was developed after gathering feedback from a series of stakeholder workshops and plenary sessions, and includes high-level and specific research data management lifecycle topics. The RDaF may be considered one of the most comprehensive resources of the research data ecosystem to-date. We appreciate NIST’s call for public comments and the opportunity to engage with a topic meaningful to both ARL and DCN memberships.
Thank you to the ARL staff and DCN members whose engagement contributed to this response:
