Research Data Management

Research data management (RDM) comprises the handling of research data throughout their entire lifecycle.

It starts with project conception, including the preparation of a Data Management Plan (DMP) and comprises the generation, collection and processing of data. The research data lifecycle concludes with the data’s publication and archiving for reuse.

Digital Curation

Data management is closely related to the question of publication and of preserving the accessibility of your data in the long term. With its Research Collection (external link), ETH Library provides an infrastructure for the publication of documents and research data in accordance with the FAIR Principles (external link). The automatic link to the ETH Data Archive (external link) in the background ensures the mid- and long-term preservation of these data.

Irrespective of the use of these applications, the specialist team for Research Data Management and Digital Curation are the first port of call for all technical and conceptual issues regarding digital long-term archiving.

Do you need any assistance? Our team is there to help you with all questions and projects in the field of research data management and digital curation, and will happily advise you on topics and services related to the data lifecycle.
