Research data

Since a great deal is invested in obtaining valuable research data, good data management is important. The Library is happy to provide support to help you manage your research data correctly.

Research Data Management


On the RDM website information on research data management is provided for every stage of your research project.

Research data management begins even before your research has started, as soon as you decide what data you will collect during your research and/or which datasets from previous research you are going to reuse.

During the research project there is the selection of good file names, correct version management, making back-ups and storing data securely, etc. 

After the project is finished, the data may be published, linked or not to articles about the research. Data deposited in a data archive are stored safely for the future and may be made available for reuse.
