Town Hall: Draft RDM Institutional Strategy Online
Research Data Management (RDM) Services and Institutional Strategy Working Group are inviting feedback on our Draft RDM Institutional Strategy from faculty, graduate students, research staff, and other McMaster researchers across disciplines.
In March 2021, CIHR, NSERC, and SSHRC released the Tri-Agency Research Data Management Policy to advance Canadian research excellence and ensure that publicly funded research is supported by sound RDM and data stewardship practices. Each postsecondary institution eligible to administer Tri-Agency funds is required to develop an institutional RDM strategy that outlines “…how the institution will provide its researchers with an environment that enables and supports RDM.” Upcoming requirements for researchers will include data management plans (DMPs) and data deposit.
A Tri-Agency representative will open this Town Hall with a presentation on the new RDM Policy. Our Institutional Strategy Working Group will share McMaster’s Institutional Strategy and how it was developed. Then, we will open the floor for researcher feedback and any supports, training, and resources required to meet RDM requirements and best practices. Research community feedback will ensure McMaster’s RDM environment aligns with researchers’ RDM needs. If you are unable to attend this Town Hall, please complete this survey or send more detailed feedback to email@example.com.

Research Data Management (RDM) refers to a set of practices and activities that include the planning, collection, documentation, storage, preservation, and sharing of research data. Good RDM practices help to increase research visibility and build new collaborations, enable verification of research results, and support a culture of reproducible research.
RDM Services at McMaster University provides several resources, including personal support, to assist researchers on campus with a variety of RDM processes. Learn more at https://rdm.mcmaster.ca/.
