Research Analysis: WDS Members and Canadian CTS Cohort Needs Assessment

From July 2022 to December 2022, the World Data System (WDS) International Technology (ITO) and
International Program (IPO) Offices conducted a review of strategic plans and technical roadmaps of all
current WDS members and the set of Canadian repositories that participated in the Digital Research Alliance
of Canada’s CoreTrustSeal Certification Support and Funding Pilot (Digital Research Alliance of Canada, 2022).
The purpose of this review was to test out a new organizational assessment method designed to identify
needs and challenges faced by the WDS and Canadian CoreTrustSeal (CTS) Cohort members. Additionally,
incorporated into this assessment were criteria from the Global Biodata Coalition (GBC), which is an initiative
created to support funders by identifying and prioritizing fundamental data resources.
