Topic: Research Data Management

Storing and making available research data from the social, behavioural, and economic sciences in a sustainable fashion requires a range of precautions and measures. Ideally, these should already be in place during the planning and execution of a research project. Research funders at a national and international level increasingly require presenting data management plans when applying for a research project. The requirements for developing such data management plans are heterogeneous and vary with regard to the necessary granularity depending on the research discipline and the research funding institution.

The term data management refers to all the research data-related activities resulting from the data life cycle. Data management activities may include data collection during a research project, data processing (incl. analysis), and archiving of research data, for example, at a facility of the research data infrastructure.
