Recommendations for handling research data at the University of Bamberg

Handling research data professionally and responsibly is an essential part of good scientific practice. Research-data management begins with collecting and digitalizing data and includes traceable data management during a research project as well as publishing and archiving the data. Creating data-management schemes, securing data after use and long-lasting data storage is promoted by many funding agencies. (see for example “Leitlinien zum Umgang mit Forschungsdaten” [German only] der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)) Thereby, aspects of Open Access and Open Science play a key role as well.
