The latest issue of Research Library Issues (RLI), gathers reflections by six archivists and librarians on the practice of radical collaboration applied to research data management (RDM).

Archivist Nancy McGovern describes radical collaboration as “inclusive, involving commitment and effort by most or all members that are broadly representative of the various aspects of the common interests or problem.” In their introduction to this issue, Judy Ruttenberg and Elizabeth Waraksa note that “not only is RDM an ideal scenario for exploring radical collaboration, but…this kind of collaboration has already resulted in demonstrable success in the RDM arena and thus ought to be considered as a model for both nascent and future data management efforts.”
