In the world of digital research, there are many different ways of storing data. But how can research data be managed in a way that makes it accessible and usable for everyone who should have access to it? In this blog post, we look at how we can tackle this challenge by introducing a method to fill in missing information about the origin of data. This approach is intended to make it easier to find and use research data – in line with the FAIR Principles.

In complex research processes, it is crucial to maintain an overview of research data and develop effective data management strategies. In addition to RDM tools and services, RWTH Aachen University therefore also offers its researchers courses and workshops on research data management (RDM) in order to develop skills in this important area.

The RDM team relies on blended learning, which combines traditional classroom teaching with digital learning methods. The basics are taught in year-round RWTHmoodle courses, which can be completed at any time and at your own pace through self-study. Building on this, what has been learned can be tested, discussed and deepened in regular workshops. In this blog post, you can get an overview of the RWTH’s RDM continuing education offers.

Research without digital data has long since become unthinkable. Many different tools and programs are sometimes used to collect, process and organize data. The programs differ not only due to different subject areas and data types, but also with regard to the respective phase within the research data life cycle: starting with data collection, through its cleansing and analytical processing, to the publication-ready output of the data including documentation.

“No one has the time to tidy up, but everyone has the time to search” – this dilemma, as described by efficiency expert Jürgen Kurz, is probably familiar to many. And when dealing with research data, many researchers and scientists are also faced with the challenge of storing their research data in such a way that it is structured, documented and secured for subsequent use. After all, the work done in advance saves us a lot of nerves, time and effort in retrospect. In this article, we would like to give you some helpful tips on data organization.
