In this report, experts from library, research, and scientific communities provide key recommendations for effective data practices to support a more open research ecosystem. The recommendations are based on information and insights shared during a December 2019 invitational conference convened by the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), the California Digital Library (CDL), the Association of American Universities (AAU), and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU). The conference was sponsored by the US National Science Foundation (NSF). The report focuses on recommendations for research institutions and also provides guidance for publishers, tool builders, and professional associations.
