Launch of the Researcher Development Statement (RDS)

Launched this week, the Researcher Development Statement (RDS) is for policy makers and research organisations that provide personal, professional and career development for researchers in higher education. It sets out the knowledge, behaviours and attributes of effective and highly skilled researchers appropriate for a wide range of careers.

The Researcher Development Statement is derived from the Researcher Development Framework (RDF), a major new approach to researcher development, which aims to enhance our capacity to build the UK workforce, develop world-class researchers and build our research base. Researchers are critical to economic success, addressing major global challenges, and building a leading knowledge economy.

It recognises that information seeking and information literacy are key skills for researchers.
