The Center for Research Libraries has assembled a team of specialists in scholarly communications and intellectual property, who will work with the AAU and member universities to formulate a business plan for ongoing, sustainable activities; and a copyright guide for managing intellectual property and copyright issues within the DATAD framework.
The plan and guide will be developed in consultation with representatives of DATAD member institutions at a planning workshop to be held in February , during visits by team members to several African universities, and through ongoing consultation with DATAD planners and other stakeholders from the African higher education and knowledge communities. The development of a business plan is no small matter, especially when it involves synchronizing an existing international operation involving numerous institutions with differing administrative and operational systems, all within a rapidly changing, competitive international knowledge market.
To achieve DATAD objectives, the blueprint must accommodate membership growth, ensure equity to knowledge creators and other investing parties, and generate a reliable, sustainable revenue stream. In an age of automated communications and point-and-click data transmission, copyright and intellectual property issues require careful study and planning. As in other nations and cultures, the goal is twofold: to create an authoritative global marketplace for African scholarship and research products, while ensuring that the benefits afforded by copyright and intellectual property law accrue to the authors and investing institutions.
The February workshop will be the first step in developing a copyright guide for dissertations and other unpublished materials made available through DATAD. Presentation topics will include international aspects of copyright, the economics of scholarly communications with special bearing on unpublished materials, and practices adopted by other electronic theses and dissertations projects.
The workshop will also serve as a forum and consensus-building event on prospective practices and policies governing dissemination of DATAD information and content. Skip to main content. Current Issue.
