<nisohq at niso.org>CODATA <http://codata.org>,  euroCRIS
<https://eurocris.org/>, and NISO <https://www.niso.org/> are pleased to
confirm arrangements for the future of selected key resources from the
former CASRAI organisation.  CASRAI as an organisation has ceased to
exist.  Before the organisation was closed down, CODATA, euroCRIS, and NISO
were each approached to steward selected CASRAI resources of value to the
research data, research information and information standards communities.

*We thank all the volunteers internationally who worked on CASRAI to make
such important contributions to our fields, and are honoured to continue
the stewardship and development of these valuable resources. *

*CODATA* is taking responsibility for the CASRAI Research Data Management
Glossary, which will now be known as the *Research Data Management
Terminology*.  The Research Data Management Terminology is intended as a
practical reference for individuals and groups concerned with the practice
and improvement of research data management.  The Terminology is being
actively reviewed and improved through a voluntary Working Group of experts
from the global RDM community and will remain freely available for
community use.  For more information, see

*euroCRIS* is taking over the management and curation of the CASRAI *Catalogue
of Elements*.  The catalogue is the result of a joint effort of business
owners that semantically described elements related to research and
education, and placed them in a relational context.  The original CASRAI
Catalogue of Elements will be managed in a Github repository and the
content will be used to enrich the CERIF format
<https://eurocris.org/services/main-features-cerif>, the Common European
Research Information Format used for exchanging research information in a
semantically interoperable manner, stored in research information systems.
For more information see: https://eurocris.org/casrai-domain-handover.

*NISO* has taken over management of the CASRAI *Contributor Roles Taxonomy
(CRediT)* <https://www.niso.org/publications/z39104-2022-credit> and has
published the terminology as a formal ANSI/NISO standard.  The work to
formalise CRediT was launched in 2020, focusing first on the initial
fourteen contributor roles in the existing CRediT taxonomy.  Now that the
formal approval process has been completed and the official standard has
been published
a NISO CRediT Standing Committee will be set up to provide a forum for
discussion and community feedback, support further implementations and use
cases for CRediT, and to consider how CRediT can be further developed and
expanded to support contributions in a wider range of subject areas.  The
taxonomy remains freely available for community use.  For more information,
please visit: http://credit.niso.org/

The CASRAI website continues to be available at https://casrai.org/, but
will finally close on *23 June 2022*.  We look forward to welcoming
colleagues to use and contribute to the Research Data Management
Terminology, the Catalogue of Elements and the CRediT taxonomy at their new
locations.  The three organisations have agreed to collaborate to ensure
good communication and any necessary alignment at the points where the
three resources connect.
