What is research data? What services for working with research data are available at the university? This page gives an initial overview of the topic. In addition to formal guidelines, we have also collected some frequently asked questions below.
Research data include measurement data, laboratory results, audio-visual information, texts, survey data, objects from collections, or samples that are created, developed or evaluated in scientific work. Methodological test procedures, such as questionnaires, software and simulations can also be included under the term research data.

Research Data Management
Research data management (RDM) refers to the activities associated with publishing research results: creating, editing, archiving, and publishing data. 
A comprehensible, structured approach to handling research data is essential for research operations and is part of the rules for ensuring good scientific practice and avoiding scientific misconduct at the University of Rostock.
To ensure the success of research data management, we recommend creating a data management plan (DMP). For further information, please refer to our page Organising Research Data.
Research Data Management Bavaria provide a brief introduction to the topic of research data with the help of videos, as well as a list of online training programmes from various disciplines for self-study. The national RDM initiatives have compiled a collection of RDM training and educational materials, available on the HU Berlin website.
