At JISC's request, we have created a new list to support discussion amongst those interested in management of research data. The list is Research-Dataman@jiscmail.ac.uk, and can be joined at http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/lists/RESEARCH-DATAMAN.html. The list description is:
"List to discuss the data management issues arising in and from research projects in UK Higher Education and its partners in the UK research community and internationally, established by the Digital Curation Centre on behalf of the JISC."
I was specifically asked not to include the word "curation" in the description, in case it frightened people off! And yes, it's already been hinted to me that the list-name is sexist. Honest, it really was just short for research data management. But you knew that (;-)!
Not much traffic yet, but this is the first time it has been publicised. Please spread the word!
