Data management in Astronomy
More and more often specific requirements are made concerning the archiving and management of research data, not only by funders and (journal) publishers but also by the University of Amsterdam itself.
The UvA Library and the ICT services provide facilities to support researchers in managing their data.
On the RDM website you can find all the information you need about planning, archiving and sharing research data.
Research data can be stored in data archives. These repositories may be used in two ways: both for archiving your own research data and for consulting and reusing research data of other researchers. For the most important data archives and repositories, see Finding data .
An example of an astronomy repository is the Mikulski Archive for Space Telescopes (MAST). MAST contains a wide variety of (research) data archives (in the optical, ultraviolet and near-infrared part of the spectrum). It is possible to add high-quality scientific datasets.
If you have a general question about research data management, please contact RDM Support.
For subject-specific questions, please contact the information specialist for Astronomy.
