The Global Open Research Commons is an Interest Group within the Research Data Alliance. The IG is working to reach a shared understanding of what a “Commons” is in the research data space; what functionality, coverage and characteristics does such an initiative require and how this can be coordinated at a global level.
Commons: A global trusted ecosystem that provides seamless access to high quality interoperable research outputs and services.
Strapline: Digital research resources for the common good.
One of the outputs of the IG is a Typology of the essential elements in a Commons.
In developing this typology, the IG identified the need to also provide a set of definitions for each of the typology elements. This diagram supplments the Typology and Definitions document, a formal statement of this typology with the associated definitions - DOI 10.15497/RDA0008
