Panorama des services RDM aux USA et au Canada

Le cabinet Ithaka S+R vient de publier son rapport The Research Data Services Landscape at US and Canadian Higher Education Institutions.

Voici les conclusions principales :

  • While there are wide divergences in the number and variety of services offered both within and across Carnegie Classifications, R1 institutions offer approximately three times the number of services offered by R2s, and more than nine times the number offered by liberal arts colleges.
  • General research data services are the most common type offered regardless of institution type. Statistical services, geospatial services, and visualization services are also common at research universities, which typically offer a much wider range of specialized services than liberal arts colleges.
  • Libraries remain the largest provider of research data services at US and Canadian research universities, but IT and units associated with the research office play important collaborative roles, especially with specialized services.
  • Bioinformatics services are offered almost exclusively through the interdisciplinary units associated with the research office or core facilities associated with medical schools.
  • Consulting services are the most common mode of service provision, comprising almost three quarters of all data services.

Merci du partage @antoineb !! Tu as vu ça passer? Ce serait intéressant de mettre ces rapports en perspective? (dans la mesure du possible bien sûr):
