Do you carry out empirical research? Manage your research data. Managing your research data in a professional manner is an integral part of good scientific pactice. More and more research data is freely available via the Internet. If you can rely on existing data, this may simplify your empirical research. However, this means you face the task of making the data you have generated available for subsequent use. Ultimately, this avoids unnecessary duplication of information. Research funding organisations are increasingly demanding that research proposals include data management plans or instructions for subsequent use of the data. These developments are above all boosted by the requirements for good academic practice: in order to ensure that results can be reproduced, a growing number of magazines are demanding the transfer of data and program codes when publishing articles. Ethics committees demand evidence that data protection has been adhered to when carrying out research projects concerning data related to people or organisations. This presents entirely new requirements regarding your competence to manage research data: • How do I find existing data records for my empirical investigations? • How do I quote reused data in an academically correct way? • How do I prepare my data for subsequent use? • Which data and safety guidelines must I adhere to? • In which repository should I enter my data?
