Research Data Group

The STM Research Data Group is an informal discussion group of participants from STM’s member organizations. The two main aims of the group are 1) exchanging information on new initiatives about the integration of research publications and research data and 2) to discuss evolving best practices in this new area. Topics that the group intends to discuss are Linking Data and Publications, Data Citations, Persistent Identifiers for Data, Peer Review of Data, and Data Curation and Preservation.

STM co-chairs the Interest Group on Data Publishing of the Research Data Alliance
The Interest Group comprises four different working groups with input from data centres, funders, researchers and publishers. See and download the poster:RDA-poster_final_WDS_edits_wide
