Digital data accumulates in practically every scientific work, for example survey data, laboratory values or photos. Handling these data in a reliable and responsible way is part of good scientific practice and includes e.g. the planning of data collection as well as the storage, evaluation, publication and preservation of data.
The lecture will deal with this "life cycle" of research data: Which expectations are placed on scientists? What should be considered regarding storage formats and locations? A second focus will be on the topic of Open Access: What exactly does Open Access mean, and how can research data and results be published digitally? The presentation of the support the University of Muenster and the University Library offer for these questions will round off the event.
Target group: The event is aimed at all scientists of the University of Münster.
Dates: Regular, once per semester. The lecture is integrated into the series "Third-party Funding in a Nutshell", which is organized by the SAFIR Research Funding Advisory Service. The dates of the series as well as information on how to participate can be found on the SAFIR Research Funding Advisory website.
Language: Alternating between English and German language
