Research Management Data

Following the guidelines of the University of Groningen and the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU), the sociology department recently implemented policy to stimulate researchers to handle their research data in a responsible way. In short, all members of the department (staff, postdocs, PhD students, and guests) are requested to document important steps that are taken during the research and store their digital data in special folders or packages. There are two types of packages:

  • Publication packages contain all data, syntaxes, and other important information needed to replicate results that are published in a scientific journal or book (chapter)
  • Research packages contain all data, syntaxes, and other important information belonging to a larger research project (e.g., KiVa)

Consistent with the oath at the PhD defense, the policy is that PhD students can only defend their thesis when there is a publication package for each chapter of their dissertation (excluding the introduction and conclusion).

For more information about this procedure you can contact the coordinator (Beau Oldenburg, b.oldenburg@rug.nl)
