Welcome to the IASSIST Communiqué


The IASSIST Communiqué is a place for discussions and news about all aspects of research data and the professionals responsible for collecting, preserving and providing access to such data. As such, this site welcomes comments on issues that promote preservation and access to data as well as material about best practices in data archiving and data services. While the content of this site does not necessarily represent official positions of IASSIST, we hope that the ideas in these discussions will provoke further debate and will eventually lead to positive outcomes.
