RDM Explained – How Do I Find Research Data?

November 4th, 2022 | by

The findability and reusability of research data are important aspects of research data management and part of the FAIR principles (Findability and Reusability). The sustainable preparation and professional publication of research data offers various possibilities for reuse. Meta-analyses, optimization of own study designs and model calibrations are just a few examples. However, finding suitable data for reuse is increasingly becoming a challenge due to steadily growing data volumes and increasing diversification of data types and storage locations. So, what are the places to go and what are the options for finding data?

Data literacy describes the planned and competent handling of data. It is a key competency for effective Research Data Management (RDM).

 

“A high level of data literacy is more important than ever against the background of large, heterogeneous data volumes and demanding user programs,”

 

says NFDI Director Prof Dr York Sure Vetter [1]. For this reason, the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) e.V. association is striving to increase data literacy in science and has launched the Data Literacy in NFDI project for this purpose. As part of our series “RDM Projects from Germany”, we present the new project to you.
