The Digital Humanities Institute worked with RECODE to develop an online toolkit to accompany its European Union policy recommendations for open access to research data. RECODE (Policy RECommendations for Open Access to Research Data in Europe) was funded by the European Union under the 7th Framework Program.
Grant agreement no: 321463. Its aim was to address challenges within the open access and data dissemination and preservation sector, and produce policy recommendations for open access to research data based on existing good practice. It did so by leveraging knowledge, expertise and good practice from existing networks, communities and projects. It also acknowledged, and tried to address, the problem that open access knowledge and expertise is fragmented by discipline, geography, stakeholder category (publishers, academics, repositories, etc.) as well as other boundaries.
The outcomes of the RECODE project included policy recommendations in full and digest/handbook formats as well as training workshops. Developing the reports into an online toolkit was The Digital Humanities Institute’s specific role in the project.
