Data management in Languages and Cultures

Planning, storing and sharing research data

On the RDM website you will find all the necessary information on planning, storing and sharing research data. The Faculty of Humanities has its own Research Data Management Protocol.

From September 28, 2017, all researchers at UvA and AUAS have access to UvA/AUAS figshare: a system for safely storing, controlled sharing and publication of research data.

Some research groups within UvA have a research environment which also allows data storage, for example the UvA Community of the Amsterdam Centre for the Study of the Golden Age (ACSGA).

For information on the digitisation and storage of non-digital data, see

More information on data management in linguistic research can be found in the article  'Linguistic data management' by N. Thieberger and A.L. Berez in The Oxford Handbook of Linguistic Fieldwork (2012).
