This document lists seven Guiding Principles for research organisations to adopt in when creating and procuring services to manage research information.

In particular, the Guiding Principles as formulated in this document aim to help:

1. guide academic institutions with decisions in information management of research in their organisations;

2. form a collective frame in which academic institutions jointly formulate policy and steer investments in infrastructure;

3. provide clear rules of engagement for collaborations involving publicly funded academic data and metadata.

This document is developed by the Dutch Taskforce on Responsible Management of Research Information and Data.36 This Taskforce was established early 2020 by the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (UNL), The Netherlands Federation of University Medical Centres (NFU) and The Dutch Research Council (NWO) to address issues around the responsible use of research information and the role of commercial third party providers in particular.
