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