A tool to support the planning, implementation, and organisation of research data management.

Welcome to RDMO at University of Bayreuth

Funders are increasingly requiring grant applicants to submit data management plans (DMPs) with their grant proposals, in an effort to promote data sharing and responsible stewardship of data by researchers. RDMO can assemble all relevant planning information and data management tasks across the whole life cycle of the research data.

A data management plan addresses the following:

  • the types of data, samples, physical collections, software, curriculum materials, and other materials to be produced in the course of the project;
  • the standards to be used for data and metadata format and content (where existing standards are absent or deemed inadequate, this should be documented along with any proposed solutions or remedies);
  • policies for access and sharing including provisions for appropriate protection of privacy, confidentiality, security, intellectual property, or other rights or requirements;
  • policies and provisions for re-use, re-distribution, and the production of derivatives; and plans for archiving data, samples, and other research products, and for preservation of access to them.

More guidance on what should go into a DMP can be found at Seiten zum Forschungsdatenmanagement an der Uni Bayreuth (german only).

The technical realisation is a service of the IT Service Centre.
