Managing research data

Lupe [1]

What is research data?

Research data is all data arising in research context such as e.g. audio recordings of interviews, results of experiments, surveys etc.

It is advisable to decide at the very outset of a research project, in what repository the data should be saved and made available in the long term. You can save time and effort if you take into account the guides for data transfer of repositories from the very beginning.

See below for checklists, guidelines and other links.
