Open science case studies

In 2017, InformAll contributed to the elaboration of case studies on open research data in the UK. This research, commissioned by the Open Research Data Task Force (ORDTF), provided a snapshot of how selected institutions and disciplinary areas address the management and use of research data, looking in particular at the context/background for creation and use of research data; the types of intervention aimed at making such data more open; and the relevant policies deployed.

InformAll’s contribution related to one institutional and one disciplinary case study, out of a total of six. The work was completed in October 2017, and the overall report (unpublished) contributed to ORDTF’s advice to Government on the development of the research data infrastructure in the UK.
