We will be addressing two major themes at the next Long Tail for Research Data Interest Group meeting in Amsterdam (Tuesday, September 23, 2014 from 2pm-5:30pm)
1. The first half of the meeting will look environments that encourage deposit and use of repositories by the research community. This may involve policies, incentives, tools, etc.
2. The second half of the meeting will involve a discussion about business models for long tail RDM services.
I would like to leave 1/2 hour or so at the end of the meeting to talk about what work the Interest Group can undertake between the plenaries, and identify some realistic deliverables that could be achieved.
For each of the two themes, I am looking for case studies to share during the meeting. We will try to choose case studies that reflect different approaches, without too much repetition. If you would like to contribute, please let me know.
Meanwhile, I will identify some parameters to help standardize and compare the information, especially in terms of business models.
As always, feel free to get in touch if you have comments or questions.
All the best, Kathleen
Executive Director, COAR
