The ISOLDE Open data Policy was approved by the ISOLDE Collaboration Committee (ISCC) on the 15th June 2023. It applies to all projects approved by the INTC to run at the ISOLDE Facility. The document sets out an "Open Data Policy for the ISOLDE Collaboration", followed by advice to spokespersons of ISOLDE proposals on important aspects of a data management plan.
