[Forwarding from JISC.  --Peter Suber.]


***Apologies for Cross Posting***
The Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) invites institutions to
submit funding proposals for projects under three separate strands of the
Managing Research Data Programme. JISC wishes to fund projects across three
strands:

1.  Strand A: Citing, Integrating and Linking Research Data: To demonstrate
the innovative potential for research and scholarly communications of
improving methods for citing, integrating and linking research data.
2.  Strand B: Enhanced Research Data Publications: To explore innovative
technical and organisational models for data publication by scoping and
piloting enhanced publications for research data in the form of =91data
journals=92, =91overlay journals=92, or similar.
3.  Strand C: Research Data Management Training: To promote research data
management skills in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) through designing
and piloting training units for undergraduate or postgraduate courses, for
librarians or research support staff, or in the form of summer schools or
roadshows.

The deadline for receipt of proposals in response to this call is 12:00 noo=
n
UK time on Friday, 12 February 2010.
Funding is available for projects starting from 1 April 2010 for any
duration up to 12 months. All projects must complete by 31 March 2011.

Proposals may be submitted by Higher Education (HE) Institutions funded by
HEFCE or HEFCW. HE and FE institutions in Northern Ireland and Scotland and
FE institutions in England and Wales are not eligible to bid but may be
involved as partners in proposals led by HE institutions funded by HEFCE or
HEFCW.

Proposals may be from single institutions or consortia. Partnership
arrangements may be developed outside the sector (for example with research
council sites, publishers, commercial suppliers), but the lead partner must
meet the criteria outlined above. Funds can only be allocated through the
lead partner.

The JISC is holding a community briefing event where potential bidders will
be given information about the background to the call, its objectives and
the bidding process. Attendees will also have an opportunity to ask
questions of JISC executive staff and relevant JISC committee members. This
meeting will take place on Monday 11 January 2010. Members of the community
are invited to register for the meeting online:

If you have any queries about the briefing day, you can contact Sounds
Commercial by email (jisc AT soundscommercial.co.uk)  or by phone (0117 958
