The RDM Code of Conduct is aligned with the UM Open Science policy, released in 2022, and provides academics with an outline on how to manage research output, keeping in mind our adage “as open as possible, as closed as necessary”. It also reinforces our commitment to the FAIR principles—ensuring research data is Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable. In other words, this code provides UM’s academics with crucial principles and standards for the responsible handling, preservation, and sharing of research data, fostering a culture of transparency, collaboration, and innovation.
