Hey Data community - let’s build together! While some may say that the Research Lifecycle is overhyped or over, we still need to do and support the work it describes. How can we accurately talk about and assess this work, particularly in the context of describing the cost of data sharing? The RADS team has drafted a set of activities that are a starting point for describing research data services. We’re using these terms to collect information about cross campus services and expenses for research data. They may not be complete or may not reflect your experience. We want to hear from you to create a shared understanding in the research community! Share your expertise and your experience - what is correct, what is missing, and what could be improved in this list. This session will be dedicated to introducing the data sharing activities - discussing in small groups each phase or section of the activities and the extent to which they align with your organization. Please attend and engage in this important work!


The RDAP community brings together a variety of individuals, including data managers and curators, librarians, archivists, researchers, educators, students, technologists, and data scientists from academic institutions, data centers, funding agencies, and industry who represent a wide range of STEM disciplines, social sciences, and humanities.
