Research data support

When you are doing research, good data management practices and transparency are essential. This portal provides guidance about research data support available to you.

Research data management (RDM) concerns the organisation, documentation, storage, archiving and sharing of digital and analogue data.
Proper RDM ensures reliable verification of results, and permits new and innovative research built on existing information. In other words, proper RDM makes data more FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable) as it supports the transparency of scientific output.
This portal provides an overview of the research support the VU has to offer.
The LibGuide toolbox provides practical information and guidelines for working with research data.

They gave me good advice and a lot of extra tips.’
