Organisation

The specification of a research core dataset is organised by the project management. This committee appoints and coordinates three working groups (WG), that is WG Definitions and data formats, WG Technics, interfaces and data formats and WG Bibliometrics. A fourth working group, WG Subject classification is directly appointed by the scientific advisory board. The heads of the four working groups are members of the project management.

The project management is composed by the project coordinator and the heads of the four working groups. The members of the project management meet on a regular basis to document progress of the project and to agree on fundamental decisions.

The working groups are each composed of up to eight experts. Of particular relevance is the inclusion and representation of expertise from the scientific community, politics and business. The selection criteria are based on the recommendations for the specification of a research core dataset by the German Council of Science and Humanities. The criteria include practical expertise regarding the collection and use of information on research activities, information on technological expertise in the areas of data modelling and (research) information systems as well as expertise in the implementation of such systems. This approach ensures that the practical requirements for the implementation of the recommendations in universities and research institutions are adequately taken into account.

Further, the German Council of Science and Humanities has convened a working group that acts as an advisory board to the project.
