Research Data Management

The ongoing process of digitalization (“Digital Revolution” - German Council for Research Data Infrastructure (RfII) 2016) of the whole research process faces major challenges for actors in the domains of science and policy. From first ideas and interests to results and final publications – the amount and heterogeneity of data which is produced within the “scientific lifecycle” grows dramatically.

This site gives an overview on the topic of research data management and related projects at the University of Bremen. We offer support regarding all related questions and advice on how to develop a data management plan. We also offer advanced training courses via the Bremen Early Career Researcher Development (BYRD).

How to create a data management plan

  • Guidelines of the University of Bremen - how to create a data management plan? [in progress]
  • Forschungsdaten.info - Informations about the topic of research data management and best practice examples
  • DMPonline- "DMPonline helps you to create, review, and share data management plans that meet institutional and funder requirements. It has been jointly developed by the Digital Curation Centre (DCC) and the University of California Curation Center (UC3)" (DMPonline 2017).
