 Get started with learning about data management

When you first start with data management, things can look a bit daunting. There are whole bunch of terms and tools that you have never heard of. Research data management refers to how you handle, organise, and structure your research data throughout the research process. The video below gives a short introduction into research data management.


For general information, best practices and tips about research data management throughout your research project, please visit the RDM guide. To help you get started, we collected articles and videos about the basics of data management. 

FAIR data

The FAIR principles have become a well-known concept as the science community is moving towards transparent, reproducible and Open Science. The FAIR Principles recommend that all research data should be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable, for both machines and people.

Additional information

  • The Handbook for Adequate Natural Data Stewardship (HANDS) promotes good data stewardship. It provides guidelines on data stewardship as well as a practical toolbox for researchers at the Dutch University Medical Centres (UMCs). It offers direction and information for all people involved in data stewardship, from researchers and data stewards, to policy makers and developers of IT infrastructure.
