Data sets

A comprehensive management of research data is part of each research project and belongs to good scientific practice. It accompanies each phase of a research project – from the proposal phase via data acquisition and data analyses to the publication phase. The overall goal of research data management is the production of findable (F), accessible (A), Interoperable (I) and reusable (R) – FAIR - data sets.

A good stewardship of data (following the FAIR principles; Wilkinson et al., 2016) and an open data culture (Nosek et al., 2015) foster reproducibility as well as sustainability in science and makes up the fundament for data science applications
