Primer on Funder-Publisher policy alignment ahead of RDA Plenary 17

19 Apr 2021

Dear RDA community,

With the next Plenary nearly upon us we, the conveners of the funder-publisher policy alignment session on Thursday 22 April, are writing to share an update on our work and request your feedback on a background document we have prepared.

By sharing this document in advance we want to empower the RDA community to engage with our project, either at the session or by commenting on the document by 4th May 2021.

The objective of the joint session is to engage stakeholders for input into information sources for policy research (phase 1 of our project) and for suggestions on approaches and tools for engagement (for phase 2).  We also welcome expressions of interest to take part in the project.  Following the session, we aim to develop an engagement plan for developing policy alignment the recommendations in consultation with stakeholders, including researchers

If you have questions about the project please contact one of the co-chairs of our groups listed below.

Best wishes,

Message prepared on behalf of the chairs of:
