Research data management in R|EX research

What is data management?

Data management refers to all activities related to research data throughout its life cycle. These activities include data collection, processing (especially analysis), and archiving in a data repository.

Why data management?

The purpose of data management planning is to carry out these activities purposefully, systematically, and efficiently. Early and comprehensive planning helps to prevent restrictions on the subsequent use of data.

Data management planning ensures

  • efficient, legally compliant, and quality-oriented use of data in research projects;
  • replicability, transparency, and traceability of research results based on this data, as well as good scientific practice;
  • he sustainability of research data and the preservation of cultural heritage.
