Una Sokcevic, Sandra Vengadasalam and Michael Franke of the Max Planck Digital Library will introduce some of the central services of the Max Planck Society focusing on research data management.
Managing research data is becoming more and more important. This applies to all sorts of data and their complete life time cycle. What was , before, manually written into notebooks is nowadays entered into databases and other digital resources (e.g. electronic laboratory notebooks). The amount of data increases and with it the demand for new standards of long-term archiving that offer possibilites to store data in a clearly presented, citable and reusable way. These are also mandatory criteria for projects funded by the European Council or the European Commission.
