Project deliverable Open Access
Jenkinson, Andrew M.
As a cluster of Research Infrastructures, the CORBEL consortium’s approach to ensuring effective data management and stewardship relies on the existing policies and expertise of the participating infrastructures. The Research Infrastructures have established data strategies appropriate for the type of data they hold and/or which their users produce, and - having the relevant expertise - are best placed to implement those strategies. Common across these strategies is a commitment to open science, pursuing the goal of sharing the outputs of publicly funded research whilst respecting the varying ethical and legal contexts of these outputs and taking account of the technical and social challenges of data sharing. Within CORBEL, the handling and deposition of research outputs will not be managed centrally. Instead, responsibility is delegated to the Research Infrastructures, who will retain control over and accountability for each dataset, service, publication and software tool produced in the context of CORBEL.
