The UT has since many years a data policy and ITC has developed guidelines based on this UT Data Policy.
Good scientific practice aims to carefully manage research data during and archive the data after every research project. It is important to keep the raw, processed and/or analyzed data available, as well as any documentation that is necessary for understanding the data and the way it was collected, processed and analyzed. Archiving plays an important role in accountability issues and allows the researcher to reuse his/her own data or to return to earlier stages of the research process when needed. As a result, research is becoming increasingly reproducible and verifiable.
The ITC/UT policy on data policy is based on leading principles in the area of research data management, such as the FAIR principles, and on national frameworks such as the Netherlands Code of Conduct for Research Integrity
Data archiving should not conflict with agreements and conditions set by data suppliers and should be stored according to the GDPR.
