The TRUST Principles for digital repositories, recently published in Nature Research’s Scientific Data, present a new set of guiding principles to demonstrate digital repository trustworthiness, centered around Transparency, Responsibility, User focus, Sustainability, and Technology. As the article states, “Repositories must earn the trust of the communities they intend to serve and demonstrate that they are reliable and capable of appropriately managing the data they hold,” and the TRUST principles provide a framework to facilitate discussion and implementation of best practices in digital preservation.

Research Data Canada (RDC), Research Data Alliance (RDA), World Data Systems (WDS), and the TRUST Principles authors are pleased to present a virtual Mini Symposium that will provide an introduction to the principles for a global audience, along with an overview of key concepts and implementations from a variety of stakeholder perspectives.
