Report Open Access
This report serves as an update to the 2017 Data Management Position Paper submitted to Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) by the Leadership Council for Digital Research Infrastructure (LCDRI). The report summarizes the Research Data Management (RDM) landscape in Canada, and documents challenges and opportunities for the current RDM ecosystem and Digital Research Alliance of Canada (the Alliance). The intent of this work is to position the Alliance to build on the current state and chart a path forward that advances RDM in coordination with other digital research infrastructure (DRI) elements to support research excellence. The report summarizes key RDM entities in the Canadian landscape at local, national, and international scales, and organizes the multiple roles they play in the ecosystem into key components necessary to support RDM nationally.
