Research Data Management

“The UK Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) is funding a project on research data management at the University of Glasgow and the Cambridge University. There’s a web site at http://www.lib.cam.ac.uk/preservation/incremental/   and a blog at http://incrementalproject.wordpress.com

Earlier this month the project issued a scoping study and implementation plan, which can be found at http://www.lib.cam.ac.uk/preservation/incremental/news.html which draws heavily on interviews that the project conducted with front-line researchers at the two institutions.”
