Data preservation means archiving them in a sustainable way. Publishing research data can be done by depositing in a trusted data repository.
- for archiving data at the UT and sharing in your research group or with specified people outside the group: Areda
- for publishing data: 4TU.ResearchData, DANS or another trusted data repository
The scope of UT RDM policy and the research group’s responsibility of data archiving does not include research data collected or generated by bachelor or master students. However, study programmes or research groups may have developed their own policies and guidelines and can make use of Areda for archiving these research data.
Be aware that when preserving and publishing research data, contracts and other written agreements between involved parties in a project may contain information about rights and licences related to these data.
