Research Research Data Management Policy Open Science

Open Science and FAIR data

Open Science is the practice of science in such a way that others can collaborate and contribute, where research data, lab notes and other research processes are freely available, under terms that enable reuse, redistribution and reproduction of the research and its underlying data and methods.
The University of Groningen strongly supports this practice!

Sharing data en recommended data repositories

Research data underpinning scientific research results can, depending on their sensitiviy and protection levels, be shared in several ways.
The UG Research database provides information on datasets developed by researchers of the University of Groningen, including the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG). All related to other research output and information on researchers and research units.
To archive and share your research data the UG has a list of recommended data repositories .


FAIR is the accronym of Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. More information: GoFAIR.
With describing your research data in the Resarch database with metadata including persistent identifiers, this data and terms of access can be made clear.
Organising your datamanagement in your RDMP and describing methods and data will increase interoperability and reusability. By yourself, your colleagues and the wider community.
