Why RDM?

Research Data Management (RDM) refers to the way research data is managed throughout a research project. RDM is an essential skill for researchers from all disciplines and in all settings.
Find out what's in it for you and get familiar with the Hasselt University RDM policy plan, funder requirements and publishers’ policies.

As a UHasselt researcher, you are expected from now on to also upload the metadata of the datasets underlying your peer-reviewed publications. This can be done via the UHasselt metadata repository. Loading the metadata can be done in just 3 simple steps.

The RDM team can give you advice on data management planning, policies, best practices, tools, etc.  You can contact them directly with your questions and/or you can brush up your data management knowledge through (basic or advanced) RDM training sessions. Find more information and the option to register in the RDM training calendar.

Data Management Plan

A data management plan (DMP) is a dynamic document in which you write down your intentions concerning data management during your research. Creating a DMP helps you to reflect on how you will collect and process data, where you will store them, which security measures you should provide, which costs you should consider, etc.

The UHasselt metadata repository for research data

As a UHasselt researcher, you are expected to upload the metadata of the datasets underlying your peer-reviewed publications. This can be done via the UHasselt metadata repository that has been integrated into the Document Server. Loading the metadata can be done in just 3 simple steps. By doing so you can score on the FAIR principles and comply with your funder's requirements.
