Management of research data

Researchers at the University of Gothenburg can get advice and help with the handling, archiving and publication of data generated by research.

On these pages we have gathered information regarding the management of research data. If you do not the information you are looking for on the pages or have further questions, you can contact the group working with research data support via researchdata@gu.se.

What kind of support do we offer?

We can help you to write a data management plan at the start of project or when applying for research funding, and inform you about

  • the guidelines, rights and restrictions that apply to your research data
  • different journals' regulations on research data publishing
  • which metadata standards and tools are used in different subject areas
  • where it is suitable to deposit your data for archiving

Research data management process

About us

The support function is part of the work of developing a coordinated national infrastructure for research data. We help you handle, archive and publish your research data correctly.

Definition of research data

We adhere to the definition of research data that is written in the Swedish Research Council's report Öppen tillgång (open access) till forskningsdata – en omvärldsbeskrivning 2014:

”refer to digital information that has been collected to be analyzed for a scientific purpose […]. Examples of such research data are results from experiments and measurements, observations from field work, statistics, survey responses, interviews and images.”
