New Request for Public Comment (RFC) on Draft Desirable Characteristics of Data Repositories: Respond by March 6!

Posted by on January 24th, 2020 Posted in: Announcements, Communications Tools, Data

The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy has issued a Request for Public Comment on Draft Desirable Characteristics of Repositories for Managing and Sharing Data Resulting from Federally Funded Research on behalf of the multi-agency Subcommittee on Open Science of the National Science and Technology Council’s Committee on Science. The proposed set of desirable characteristics is part of the Subcommittee’s efforts to improve the consistency of information that Federal agencies provide to the scientific community about the long-term preservation of data resulting from Federally funded research. The characteristics could apply to repositories operated by government or non-governmental entities.

Feedback will help the Subcommittee refine and develop a common set of characteristics that Federal research funding agencies can use to support ongoing efforts to improve the management and sharing of data from Federally funded research. To ensure consideration of comments, submit responses before 11:59 PM EST on Friday, March 6.
