Status: Recognised & Endorsed

The development of advanced materials inherently rests on access to a distributed materials infrastructure and materials research data to fuel discovery and innovation.  RDA aims to accelerate and facilitate research data sharing and exchange. Similarly, CODATA works to strengthen international science for the benefit of society by promoting improved scientific and technical data management and use.  Given these complementary missions, this RDA IG and the CODATA TG will work together under the following statement in support of the exchange of material data.  

The success of the scientific endeavor rests on the foundation of free and open exchange of ideas and supporting data.   We believe this kind of exchange with computational and experimental materials data through shared online repositories, standardized formats and terminologies and open programming interfaces is essential to accelerating the discovery, design, and development of advanced materials.  Making this data widely and freely available, as a "public good", creates increased opportunities for conducting fundamental research while facilitating potential commercial development activity of data-based services, tools, and applications.  It therefore follows that it is in the scientific and economic interest of all countries to operate under this framework of free and open data exchange to the greatest extent possible, in such cases where it does not infringe on intellectual property  or national security.

Materials Open Research - a new, open science publishing platform for materials scientists

by Jack Brook

Dear all, I wanted to briefly let you know about the launch of Materials Open Research - a new open science publishing platform created by F1000 and Taylor & Francis. MOR may be of interest to this particular RDA working group as it advocates an open data policy and endorses the FAIR data principles.
