Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam is strongly committed to the accessibility of research output, being publications, data and research software. They are important for the visibility, verifiability and reusability of research. These Research (Data) Support webpages provide support before, during and after your research. The info is organized according to the research lifecycle, as this is the process a researcher follows to start, conduct and complete a project or study. In addition this portal offers information about training, tools, infrastructure, guidance and support available at the VU.
Research data support

It encompasses practices such as Open Access publishing, making data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIRdata) and attributing credit to scientific contributions that is more than counting the production of publications.
