High-quality data management is fundamental to research excellence. The ability to store, access, reuse and build upon digital data is critical to the advancement of research, supports innovative solutions to economic and social challenges, and holds tremendous potential for improvements in quality of life nationally and internationally.

 

As a step in this process, the agencies have developed the Tri-Agency Statement of Principles on Digital Data Management (the Statement). This builds on the 2013 consultation document, Toward a Policy Framework for Advancing Digital Scholarship in Canada, information provided by a Comprehensive Brief on Research Data Management Policies, and advice received through stakeholder engagement. The agencies sought feedback from the research community in summer 2015 on a draft version of the Statement.

 

The Statement of Principles on Digital Data Management outlines the agencies’ overarching expectations with regard to digital research data management, and the responsibilities of researchers, research communities, institutions and funders in meeting these expectations. It complements and builds upon existing agency policies, and will serve as a guide to assist the research community in preparing for, and contributing to the development of, Tri-Agency data management requirements. The HTML version is accessible here, and the PDF version is accessible here.

The University of British Columbia (UBC) is among a growing number of research and academic institutions with OA policies that ‘encourage or mandate access to research outputs’. Having OA policies and mandates assists UBC scholars and researchers to ‘negotiate their rights, and to make their work openly available’. Other universities adopting OA mandates include: Concordia University, University of Ottawa, Harvard University, and Stanford University to name just a few.

In 2013, both Senates of the UBC Okanagan and the UBC Vancouver campuses approved the UBC Open Access Position Statement and endorse the following statements:

  1. Faculty members are encouraged to deposit an electronic copy of their refereed and non-refereed research output and creative work in cIRcle in accordance with applicable copyright arrangements which may be in place for that work.
  2. Where a faculty member has deposited a work with cIRcle, cIRcle shall be granted a non-exclusive licence to preserve and make publicly available the research contained therein.
  3. The authors of works deposited with cIRcle will maintain ownership of their rights in the works.

cIRcle offers a number of services to help UBC faculty make their research available to the world. Learn more at: circle.ubc.ca.
