Introduction
As teaching staff member, I retired from Eszterházy Károly University. My professional interest includes abstracting, information literacy, data literacy, and information overload. I was identified as one of the 2% of best cited Hungarian researchers. See: https://tab.mta.hu/files/7216/1035/5040/Hazai_kutatok_nemzetkozi_lathatosaga_2017-2019.pdf

Az információs műveltség az egész életen át történő tanulás fogalmához kötődik. Az írástudás elsajátíttatásához hasonlóan, fejlesztésének a közoktatás korai szakaszában kellene lezajlania, mindazonáltal minden korosztálynak el kell sajátítania készségeit. Ezért van kiemelt fontossága annak, hogy a kompetenciaalapú tanárképzésbe is beépüljön.

Questions

Question (1)
Question
Does anyone know if there is any difference between “Research Data Services” and “Research Data Management Services”?
If you can say with confidence that there is one, are you familiar with reliable papers, which clearly explain the nature of difference?
(To make it clear, the difference between Research Data Management and Research Data Services appears to be much more clear-cut.)
Thank you in advance for you answers.
