Policy-making for Research Data in Repositories: A Guide” by Ann Green, Robin Rice, and Stuart Madonald. The guide is intended to be used as a decision-making and planning tool for institutions with digital repositories in existence or in development that are considering adding research data to their digital collections.

The Guide was produced as part of the UK JISC funded DataShare project whose overall aim was to contribute to new models, workflows and tools for academic data sharing within a complex and dynamic information environment which included increased emphasis on stewardship of institutional knowledge assets of all types; new technologies to enhance e-Research; new research council policies and mandates; and the growth of the Open Access / Open Data movement.
