Managing research data

Managing your output/results

Once you have completed your research, you will need to publish your research data and store it securely. The UG has a number of services that can help in this respect. You can also ask for advice and support regarding data policy and open access data.     

Data policy Archiving

Archiving 

As a researcher, you have invested a lot of time and energy in your publication and you have generated some valuable findings. In order to ensure that research remains transparent and that research data can be reproduced, the UG wants you to arrange long-term security for your research data. You can do this by storing your data in a safe, well-considered way, in one of the local archives in the systems provided by the UG. The next step may be to provide external access —and ultimately public access— to your data. This is referred to as data publication.

Digital Competence Center

Do you need help with matters relating to archiving your research data? This could include storage solutions, compiling a Data Availability Statement, or adding metadata. The Digital Competence Center can help you to archive your research data. Please remember that procedures may differ per faculty, so contact the privacy & security coordinator at your Faculty.  

Pure

Pure is the UG’s research information system, in which all of the University’s research output is registered: not just articles and other publications, but also datasets, for example, and 'self-developed' software.

Sharing data

Sharing data

The UG provides several options for sharing research data quickly and safely with colleagues and other researchers. You can share data within and outside the UG.

Storing, processing, and sending data securely

Before you save your research data, ask yourself the following questions: How big will my dataset be when I’ve completed my research? Who will be working on the data with me? How confidential is my data? How can I ensure that I don’t lose my data? Which technical options does the UG provide for storing my data securely? You will find the answers to these questions on the page of the Digital Competence Center, where you can also find more information about processing and sending data securely. Please remember that procedures may differ per faculty, so contact the Privacy & Security coordinator at your Faculty.

FAIR data

FAIR data 

Researchers are increasingly being asked to publish their research data externally, to make them visible and/or publish them publicly, as well as archiving them within the relevant university. You can share some or all of your research data in a repository, depending on the sensitivity and protection level. The basic principle at the UG is: ‘Share your research data as open as possible, and as closed as necessary’. The application of FAIR principles, taking data protection and easy access for others into account, is the final step in the life cycle of your research data.  

Further information

Do you want to know more about placing research data in a repository? Or do you have a question about open access archiving and sharing research data? More information about publishing data is available on the page of the Digital Competence Centre. Please remember that procedures may differ per faculty, so contact the privacy & security coordinator at your Faculty.
