This month the ESRC (Economic and Social Research Council) has released an updated version of its Research Data Policy.The policy consists of nine core principles that align with the RCUK Common Principles on Data Sharing.
The updated policy provides clarification on these nine core principles and detailed guidance on roles and responsibilities for research data at a project, organisational, funder and archive level.
To help OU researchers to understand the ESRC policy and find university services to assist with compliance, we have also created a handy flyer. Please share this with your colleagues!
