Some funding agencies require the establishment of a data management plan. Such a plan is a living document. The plan defines how the handling of research data will be carried out through the entire project. It holds parameters such as how and in what way data is stored, and to what extent the data will be made visible after the end of the project. The principles for shareable research data is described with the term FAIR: Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable.
In our knowledge base you will find more information about research data. Here you will find, among other things, a definition of what research data is and why you should share it, the FAIR-principles, data management plans, how to find and store research data, and more.
