Research data management at University of Basel

Research data management is part of good research and involves many aspects such as

  • Clarifying legal aspects
  • Careful selection of datasets
  • Decision making about formats
  • Publishing and archiving data in a reusable forms.

Services for our researchers to all the above mentioned steps are provided by different people and organizational units across the university. A close collaboration and a strong network among the providers is essential to ensure the most efficient and best support for researchers.

In order to achieve these goals the current project research data management was launched in December 2017. With our work we aim to achieve a basis for good scientific practice, security, transparency and traceability of research results and thus the re-use of research data for further studies and thus optimizing its social benefits. Part of our work is dedicated but not limited to establish

  • University Philosophy and Policy on Research Data Management
  • Legal framework for secure research data management
  • Integrative services for the entire research data cycle
  • Templates for data management plans
  • Trainings & Events
  • Solutions for active data management and long-term archiving
