How do you keep your data safe, findable and useable?

Data storage

How and where you store your data will determine the security and durability of your files. 

Organising and describing data

Good organisation of your files allows you to find your data easily later on. 
In order to keep your research data useable for yourself and others, it is wise to describe your data: set down all the information necessary to understand the contents and context of the data. 

Archiving data

At the conclusion of your research project, you are obliged to save the raw research data for at least five years and to make them available to other researchers upon request. You can do this yourself, but you can also choose to store your data in a data repository.
