FAIRe data, repositories and persistent identifiers

FAIR Data - From Fairy Tale to Truth

Data should meet the FAIR principles. This means that they should be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. But what exactly is meant by this? How do you reach FAIR data? And how is a data management plan helpful for this? You will learn this and some other tips in the course unit "FAIR Data - From Fairy Tale to Truth".

Repositories - Storage and publication of research data

For long-term security and for sharing with other researchers, your research data should be stored in so-called repositories. What repositories are and how to find suitable repositories is explained in this module entitled "Repositories - Storage and publication of research data". At the same time, you will learn what you should look out for when selecting repositories so that your data is stored and made accessible in the best possible way.

  1.     Agenda (from min. 0:26)
  2.     What is a repository? (from min. 1:11)
  3.     How do I find the right repository? (from min. 3:15)
  4.     Publish data in a repository (from min. 4:38)
  5.     Certification of repositories (from min. 6:30)
  6.     How do I operate a repository? (from min. 8:00)

Persistent identifiers - Ensuring permanent access

Persistent identifiers serve to ensure that content - such as your research data or publications - is permanently accessible. In this module entitled "Persistent Identifiers - Ensuring Permanent Access" you will therefore learn what a persistent identifier is and why it exists. In addition, selected persistent identifiers for data and digital objects, persons and institutions are presented.

Screencast contents

  1.     What is a persistent identifier (PID)? (from min. 0:48)
  2.     Why does PID exist? (from min. 1:08)
  3.     What is PID for? (from min. 2:41)
  4.     DOI (from min. 3:07)
  5.     ORCID (from min. 4:19)
