Research Data Management in the Canadian Context would not have been possible without the collaboration and participation of members of Canada’s academic data community, as well as representatives from agencies supporting Research Data Management.

The initial idea to create a resource of this type came from a Canadian RDM-OER listserv, which brought together RDM supporters across Canada. Lachlan MacLeod was instrumental in getting this group formed and talking about developing an open textbook on RDM. The RDM-OER listserv continued to provide input, feedback and support throughout the life of the project.

We are thankful for the project support we had from Serena Henderson during the initial phases of the project, with financial support from Dalhousie University. Yeliz Baloglu Cengay provided assistance with inputting chapters to Pressbooks.

This project could not have happened without the financial support of a number of different groups. Research Data Management in the Canadian Context is supported in part by funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council. We additionally gratefully acknowledge financial support from Compute Ontario; a Western University Research Mobilization, Creation & Innovation Grant; the Western Libraries, Western University Academic Activity Support Fund; a Concordia Library Research Grant; and a University of British Columbia OER Rapid Innovation grant. Dalhousie University provided support for hiring a Project Coordinator in the early days of the project. The Digital Research Alliance of Canada provided graphics support.

The cover design is by Amy McConchie, CCGoodwin Consulting.
