Research data management
Some research organisations and funders already require research data to be stored for a particular length of time, to be published or made available to other researchers. For this reason, it is important to create a data management plan when planning a research project. A data management plan provides clear written documentation of how data are handled to ensure that all requirements are met and that the quality of the research data is ensured.
When creating a plan, it is important to adhere to the established norms and regulations on safeguarding good scientific practice (http://www.dfg.de/download/pdf/dfg_im_profil/reden_stellungnahmen/download/empfehlung_wiss_praxis_1310.pdf).
