Open Access Week: Support for data management

It is best to consider the different stages of the life cycle of research data already when drafting a research plan: an open research process and good data management makes the research more verifiable and increases the reproducibility of research. Research results can therefore be used time and time again, also in decision-making, and thanks to digitalisation, future generations of researchers will have access to a constantly growing volume of data. Well-planned data management also saves time, makes archiving of material easier and simplifies the process involving open publishing. Taking care of research data is also part of responsible conduct of research.

The Uniarts Helsinki Library can give you support in using the data management planning tool DMPTuuli as well as in questions related to data descriptions, open publishing and long-term preservation. More information is available in the Data Management Guide (in Finnish, in English tba) and by contacting the Library: ari-pekka.lauhakari@uniarts.fi and harri.ollikainen@uniarts.fi.
