WRHA Virtual Library: Research and Data Management

Research Data Management

Learn more about research and data management:

  • Open Access (OA) is a form of publishing that makes research articles freely available online, usually under a license that allows them to be redistributed. Some journals are wholly or partially OA, and some research funders require OA publishing of funded results (see for example the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy)
  • Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching and learning resources that can be freely used, shared and adapted.
  • UBC Research Data Management Guides provide a broad overview of issues related to research data management, including a "Good Enough" guide that any researcher can adopt regardless of level of expertise.
  • SHERPA/RoMEO is a searchable database that provides summaries of publisher copyright and open access policies. This is helpful if you want to know the rules about sharing of research articles from a particular journal.
  • Metrics Toolkit introduces research impact metrics and what they measure.
  • ORCID is a persistent digital identifier that uniquely identifies a researcher (for example, distinguishing them from someone else with the same name) for the purposes of tracking their research output.
