Managing research data efficiently requires planning: finding out what requirements you must satisfy and laying down how you are going to tackle the management of your data.
Data management plan
A data management plan (DMP) is a digital document in which you describe what data your are going to collect during your research project, how you will store and manage the data during the project, and what will happen to the data after the project has finished.
DMPonline is an online tool for researchers to easily write, edit, share and store data management plans.
UvA and AUAS policy
At the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) a policy for research data management is being developed. The UvA and AUAS conform to what has been agreed on in (inter)national collaborations.
An increasing number of funders of academic research make requirements about how researchers are supposed to handle their data. These requirements vary by funder.
