Open Research Data
Digital research data are gaining in importance not only because of their growing quantity. Rather, they are a special knowledge resource that ensures the traceability of research results and can lead to new findings through subsequent use. Research data have a high value and must - in line with good scientific practice - be responsibly secured in all phases of the data life cycle and be accessible and reproducible. Furthermore, dedicated research data management is increasingly becoming a prerequisite for the acquisition of external funding.
Various infrastructures and services are needed to support researchers in handling their digital research data. To this end, ten Hessian universities and the Association Centre of the Hessian Library and Information System are working together under the leadership of the Philipps University of Marburg to establish a sustainable infrastructure within the framework of the project "Hessian Research Data Infrastructures". This research data infrastructure is intended to initiate and coordinate the necessary organisational and technological processes to anchor research data management at the participating universities.
Research Data Management Organiser, or RDMO for short, is a tool for creating data management plans. With the web application specified for h_da, researchers at Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences can create and maintain data management plans (DMP) for their research projects.
The research data team at h_da supports university members in using RDMO. Feel free to contact us!

TUdatalib is an institutional repository operated in co-operation with TU Darmstadt for all research data generated or processed at Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences. It enables the structured storage of both data and descriptive metadata as well as the long-term archiving of data (more than ten years). It is also possible to publish metadata and files, including the assignment of a Digital Object Identifier (DOI).

In order to support their researchers in handling their digital research data, ten universities in Hesse are working together to establish a sustainable infrastructure. The state initiative "Hessian Research Data Infrastructures" (HeFDI) under the leadership of Philipps-Universität Marburg aims to initiate and coordinate the necessary organisational and technological processes to anchor research data management at the participating universities.
