Works in Progress Webinar: Identifying and Acting on Incentives when Planning RDM Services

This webinar is intended to provide a model for institutions to identify and act on locally relevant incentives, which we believe is essential for optimizing decision making for institutions.  

Presenters

Rebecca Bryant, PhD, Senior Program Officer, OCLC Research  

Ixchel M. Faniel, PhD, Senior Research Scientist, OCLC Research
 

Description

In the second webinar of the three-part Realities of Data Management webinar series, we continue to explore the factors influencing institutional decision making when developing resources and support for research data management. Here we present an incentives model that shapes local needs. Drawing on our research we discuss the following incentives:   

  • Compliance: meeting data management and sharing mandates from external funders, journals, agencies, or institutions  
  • Evolving scholarly norms: increasing interest in data sharing and reuse as part of a broader movement for open science   
  • Institutional strategy: elevating RDM to an institutional priority   
  • Researcher demand: supporting data management, sharing, and reuse needs   

This webinar is intended to provide a model for institutions to identify and act on locally relevant incentives, which we believe is essential for optimizing decision making for institutions.   

This webinar is second in a three-part series based upon The Realities of Research Data Management series published by OCLC Research in 2017-18. It will be of interest to library leaders and scholarly communications librarians. Given the enterprise nature of research data management, it will also be relevant to other institutional stakeholders including deans, research administrators, institutional researchers, and IT professionals. Interested RLP members may also choose to participate in an accompanying RDM Interest Group community.
