LIBER DMP Catalouge​
A central hub for DM plans across disciplines.

LIBER (Association of European Research Libraries) represents universities and their researchers in "World class research" and one of the focus areas is data management. A catalog of DM plans across disciplines has been collected as inspiration for researchers. More than 400 organizations are members of LIBER incl. Denmark (See list).

Data management guideline for social science researchers
(The principles can advantageously be used wider than that).
CESSDA ERIC (Consortium of European Social Science Data Archives European Infrastructure Consortium) aims for social science researchers to handle their research data according to the FAIR principles: Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable.
The guide consists of six chapters that guide the reader through the different stages of the research project, from the initial planning phase to the publication of data. You can find answers to questions like: How do I handle personal information? What is the best way to document my data? How do I save my data securely? Can I share my data with others?
