Resolution zum Forschungsdatenmanagement

The University of Bielefeld supports its scientists in implementing the principles on research data at the University of Bielefeld of 19 July 2011 in the sense of binding and quality-conscious research data management.

  1. The Rectorate calls on all applicants to make use of the university's advisory services in advance of third-party funding projects that require a data management plan (e.g. German Research Foundation).
  2. The Rectorate encourages scientists and scholars to publish their research data via registered disciplinary research data archives or, if not available, via the research data archive of the University of Bielefeld. The publication should take personal and company-related interests into account and take place under binding licensing conditions.

For the fulfilment of point 1), the Contact Point Research Data at the University Library [since November 2018 Competence Center Research Data, editor's note] offers a comprehensive consulting service for the preparation of data management plans and the continuous documentation of research data.

According to point 2), the Bielefeld University Library supports faculties and scientific institutions in networking their offerings with worldwide data archives. At the same time, the university-wide service PUB - Publications at the University of Bielefeld allows the primary publication of research data. Directories such as the DFG-funded "Registry of Research Data Repositories" form the basis for the search for suitable publication locations for research data.

(approved by the Rectorate at its meeting on 12 November 2013)
