New RDM Guidance from the Portage COVID-19 Working Group

 September 30, 2020

The Portage Network is very pleased to announce the publication of five new guidance documents from the Portage COVID-19 Working Group. These guidance documents were developed to help support research data management in accordance with the RDA COVID-19 Guidelines and Recommendations

Portage will be hosting a community call to discuss how these new resources can help researchers, librarians, and others better manage COVID-19 related research data. More information, including date and registration, will be announced shortly.

The Portage COVID-19 Working Group was initiated in late March 2020 to create guidance for Canadian researchers who are generating or working with COVID-19 related data, and for librarians and others who support them. Membership in the Group spanned institutions from across Canada, and was led by Portage Curation Coordinator Erin Clary, Preservation Coordinator Beth Knazook, and former Training Coordinator Melanie Parlette-Stewart.

In addition to the publications above, the Group also collaborated with the broader data management community to gather Canadian COVID-19 related resources — including sources of data or statistics on COVID-19 and RDM-related resources and links — for inclusion in the international  OpenAIRE COVID-19 Gateway
