This groundbreaking guide leads researchers, institutions, and policymakers through the processes needed to set up and run effective institutional research data management (RDM) services, providing a step-by-step explanation of the components for an institutional service. Case studies from newly emerging service infrastructures in the UK, USA, and Australia spotlight the range of different approaches institutions are taking, from researcher-focused strategies to a national, top-down approach. An informative window on an emerging area of practice, key topics include:
