It is perfectly acceptable to leave the auto generated basic contributor page without customising it further. However, be aware that the page will only contain the auto generated text based on your records in Research Data Australia (RDA).


If you already have a party record in RDA representing your organisation that you link all your records to, you have a couple of options:

  • If you are confident that only your records link to your organisation's party record, you can remove the party record from your feed and let the Contributor Page act as the home page for your organisation in RDA. You may want to consider copying some of the content from your party record to your Contributor Page before removing it.
  • If you are unsure if records from another data source or group link to your records, you can leave your organisation's party record in your feed. In this scenario it will be beneficial to ensure your Contributor Page and the party record share an identifier (e.g. National Library of Australia ID). 

    Future enhancements to Research Data Australia (RDA) will ensure that when a user clicks on a link to your party record they are redirected to your Contributor Page where they can discover all of your records.
