Datamanagement for researchers

Research data are the raw materials of almost every research project. Collected data are valuable and require careful documentation, management, and archiving. The Standard Evaluation Protocol 2015-2021 promotes the handling and storing of raw and processed data with care and integrity. Funders and publishers, too, are imposing strict requirements regarding research data planning, management, and accessibility.

The University Library actively supports researchers and faculties in setting up guidelines and procedures for data management. In collaboration with the IT department, the Library also offers support on technical aspects.

Research Data at VUnet website

The University Library offers a dedicated website at VUnet (log in with VU-net-id) with all the information researchers need. Here, they will find templates for writing a data management plan, guidelines on data anonymization, facilities for data archiving and data analysis at the university, and much more.


A LibGuide on Data Management is available in case you are not aware of current developments.
