Use the link to access more information about the programs and presentations highlighted in the post from JISC.  “It has been remarked in a number of places that OR 2012 saw the arrival of research data in the repository world.  In his account of his Edinburgh experience, Peter Sefton observed that we are now talking about Research Data Repositories, not just Institutional Publication Repositories   And Angus Whyte has described this as bringing data into the open repository fold.  It has also been remarked that research data management can make ‘a significant contribution to an institution’s research performance’, but only if services are based upon robust understanding of researchers’ needs.  Using a wordle of #or2012 tweets in his closing summary, Peter Burnhill noted that ‘Data is the big arrival. There is a sense in which data is now mainstream.’  (See Peter’s summary on the OR2012 You Tube Channel).  Peter also remarked on the presence of #jiscmrd, the tag for JISC’s Managing Research Data programme, in the word cloud!  A number of the current JISCMRD projects gave presentations about their work over the week.  None of these observations should be a surprise.  Research data has been climbing the agenda, pushed by a variety of imperatives, that are well known.  So what was significant in the various presentations on research data issues at OR2012?”
