*Hot off the press: **Coordination and Support of International Research
Data Networks: Final Report Published

The OECD Global Science Forum (GSF) and the World Data System (WDS)
partnered on a project to inform policies to promote open data for science
focused on internationally coordinated data networks. The overall aim was
to identify principles and policy actions that can enable the establishment
and maintenance of effective international data networks that are necessary
to support a global open science enterprise.

The final report of the Expert Group is published and available on the OECD
Library: http://dx.doi.org/10.1787/e92fa89e-en

International research data networks are critical for progress in many
scientific domains and underpin efforts to promote Open Science. At the
same time, many of these networks are fragile and the responsibilities for
their support and performance are frequently distributed across a variety
of different actors. This report explores the challenges and enablers for
the effective functioning of international research data networks. It
analyses the diversity and complexity of these networks, and issues such as
governance and funding, in a selection of 32 cases. It includes a set of
policy recommendations as a basis for building the shared understanding
that is necessary to develop effective and sustainable international
research data networks.
