Project planning and funding application: Data management plans and expert advice

In order to ensure a sustainable and re-usable archiving of your data you should develop a data management plan at an early stage of your research. For the development of a data management plan for your project we do offer you:

  • Technical advice:

    data acquisition, data storage (during and after your project), file formats, relevant metadata, metadata schemes and vocabularies, conversion,…
  • Organizational advice

    Reviewing of your data management plan, support with grant applications, policies and requirements of different funding organizations, questions on the publication of data, potentially relevant services at Heidelberg University or other institutions,…
  • Information on legal issues:

    Suitable licenses (Creative Commons,…), copyright,…

For the creation of data management plans we recommend using DMPonline. This software, developed by the Digital Curation Centre (DDC), allows a stepwise construction of data management plans specifically tailored for your project and the requirements of various research founders. DMPonline is free of charge. Created plans can be exported in various file formats, e.g. for integrating them in project proposals.

During your project: Data management

The Computing Centre offers a variety of software tools and services to support you with data processing and data management:

  • heiBOXExterner Inhalt

    heiBOX is a data storage and sharing service provided by the University Computing Centre. It can be used to store research data in a central location at the Computing Centre, to synchronize the data with several devices like workstations, desktop computers and laptops, and to share the data with other users. Moreover, heiBOX offers an end-to-end encryption for sensible data.
  • bwFileStorageExterner Inhalt

    bwFileStorage gives you access to the central data storage of the Large Scale Data Facility (LSDF) at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). bwFileStorage is intended as a central storage for HPC-users.
  • SDS@hdExterner Inhalt

    SDS@hd is a central service for secure storage of scientific data (Scientific Data Storage). The service is available to researchers of the Baden-Württemberg universities. The focus is on data that is frequently accessed ('hot data').
  • High Performance ComputingExterner Inhalt

    The University Computing Centre provides access to various computing clusters in Heidelberg and Baden-Württemberg for employees and students of the Heidelberg University. Furthermore, there are various offers to get information about the usage of computing clusters and to get assistance in case of problems or to optimize computing performance.
  • Filetransfer with F*EXExterner Inhalt

    The F*EX-Service is a HTTP-based service of BelWü, the national high school network in Baden-Württemberg, for sending large files. The recipient will be notified by e-mail including a download link for the file.

End of your project: Sharing, publication and cataloguing of data

The Competence Centre offers with heiDATA and heidICON two solutions for archiving, data sharing, and if you wish the open access publication of your data.

  • heiDATAExterner Inhalt

    heiDATA is the university’s research data repository. All researchers affiliated with the university can use this service for archiving and publishing their data. heiDATA offers the following features:
    • Persistent and citable addressing of data via DOI’s,
    • Individual authorization and license models for data access,
    • Linking between research data and related publications,
    • Archiving of various file formats,
    • Flexible and configurable metadata schema with controlled vocabularies,
    • Provision of metadata for external catalogues and databases,
    • Based on the Open Source Software DataVerse (Harvard, http://thedata.org)
    • Indexing of all data sets and respective data citations inThomson Reuters’ Data Citation Index as well as in further national and international databases.

    If you are interested in using heiDATA, please see our author instructions.

  • heidICONExterner Inhalt

    heidICON is the image and multimedia archive of Heidelberg University and especially suited for requirements of the corresponding file formats.
  • Research Data Catalogue for Heidelberg UniversityExterner Inhalt

    In the comprehensive Research Data Catalogue of Heidelberg University we register published research data independently of whether they are available from our services or from external repositories. The Research Data Catalogue is part of heiBIB, the main index of publications Heidelberg University.
