OECD GSF / Open Data for Science

Open Data for Science - OECD Project

The Global Science Forum (GSF) is working with partners on two projects related to Open Data for Science: i) sustainable business models for data repositories and ii) international coordination of data infrastructures for open science. These build on previous work by TIP on Making Open Science a Reality

1. Sustainable business models for data repositories:

This project will explore income streams and emerging business models for scientific data repositories, using a case study approach. The work will build on, and expand, a preliminary study of 25 data repositories which was carried out by a Working Group of the Research Data Alliance (RDA) and the World Data System. A joint Expert Group has been established with the ICSU Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA) to take this project forward.

2. International coordination of data infrastructures for open science:

The aim of this project is to identify key principles and policy actions that can help improve the international coordination and integration of data infrastructures for open science. An analysis of data networks from different fields of science will focus on issues such as: aims and functions; operational networking models; shared resources; governance and data policies. A joint Expert Group has been established with the ICSU World Data System (WDS) to take forward this work.
