Research data is a precious resource that comes in many forms and formats, from statistics to images, programming code and ancient texts. Making this research data accessible to others is a central contribution to making science more transparent and reproducible. Increasingly research funders and publishers require free and easy access to research data. Below you find services and information on how to do this. Get in contact to discuss any related question.
Publishing your research data allows others to access and reuse it. Numerous services are available for this purpose – UiA’s library offers access to the repository DataverseNO, see the deposit guidelines for advice on the steps involved in this process.
Alternatively, the CERN laboratory offers the repository Zenodo to researchers from all disciplines. For a comprehensive overview of the repositories available to the different academic disciplines you can consult the service re3data.org.
A data management plan is a tool for managing research data. It describes how data will be managed during a research project and after project completion. The purpose is to evaluate different aspects of the handling and managing of research data, including data collection and generation, processing, analyses, documentation, storage, and sharing. It provides for that your research data can be reused and understood in the future.
Various templates for Data Management Plans are available:
