The University Library (UB) can provide you with support for all matters related to the life cycle of digital research data, from the initial planning stage through to the end of your project. This includes:
Where and how can you search for data on your research project and what is the correct way of citing it?
Which data are you likely to generate in your project and how should it be structured, organised and protected during and after the project?
Which standards are there for metadata and which tools are available for data visualisation?
- Data publication
Which opportunities and requirements exist with regard to publishing research data?
Should your research data be made publicly available and, if so, should it be published in full or in part, and who should receive access and when (e.g. after an embargo)?
Which licence models are there and what rights do they grant users?
- Data formats
Which data formats are most suitable for permanent archiving and how long must data be saved for (systematic deletion)?
