Research Data Management and Digital Curation
Research Data Management
The term Research Data Management (RDM) encompasses the handling of research data during their entire life cycle. This starts with the conception of a project including a data management plan (DMP), comprises data creation and processing and extends to their publication and preservation for future re-use.
Appropriate data management and the creation of DMPs do not only facilitate sharing and publishing data; moreover, funders like the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF) or Horizon2020 demand the submission of a DMP when submitting a project proposal. These DMPs should be updated regularly in the course of a project.Our RDM team supports you in creating DMPs and assists you with the management and publication of your data.
Data management is closely related to data publication and to the preservation of data availability in the long term.
With the Research Collection (external link), ETH Library provides an infrastructure for the publication of documents and research data according to the FAIR principles (external link). The automated connection to the ETH Data Archive in the background ensures the medium to long-term preservation of these data.
Even if you don’t plan to use these applications, the Research Data Management and Digital Curation team is your point of contact for technical and conceptual issues concerning long-term electronic archiving.
