Love Data Week 2021

During international Love Data Week, the Library is raising awareness of the EUI Research Data Collection in the Cadmus repository and Library Research Data Services including; data management planning; data protection and copyright; and data preservation and repositing:

♥ The Library helps researchers, fellows and professors to preserve their research data in the EUI Research Data Collection in the Cadmus repository
♥ The first step is to complete the Library’s online data submission form
♥ We will then make an appointment for transfer of data, documentation and – where applicable – code
♥ Any researcher, fellow or professor – from any discipline – can submit research data outputs to the EUI Research Data Collection
♥ Library staff will use the information in the online form to generate metadata to describe your dataset and make it findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR data principles)
♥ The Library also helps research project managers to prepare data management plans (DMPs) which are required when applying for EU Horizon Europe and ERC funding
♥                                                                Continue reading…
