The TUHH as an university of technology has the mission to develop technology for people. The university TUHH offers research and education at a high academic level. For the future development and competitiveness in the international context, the TUHH must participate in the discussion on Open Access for research results and research data. Open Access can result in a higher quality of scientific results, better visibility and greater discussion within the scientific community and a better international cooperation. Funding sources as DFG and EU already require open access availability of research results. Hamburg has just launched a prestudy for Hamburg Open Archive, the platform for Open Access in Hamburg.
TUHH adopted the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) recommendations to ensure “Good Scientific Practice” and also the DFG “Guidelines for handling research data“. In this context, we would like to collect requirements and needs for research data management at TUHH. Research data in this survey is defined as raw data (measured data, source code, simulation results, image data, etc.) on which research results and publications are based.
The TUHH survey about Research Data on behalf of the Präsidium of TUHH is based on the already carried out surveys of the Humboldt University (2013) and the Technische Universität Darmstadt (2015). Participation is voluntary and anonymously possible in German and English. The Scientific Staff and the DV-Beauftragte have been invited by mail to participate in the survey. In case we missed anyone interested at TUHH, please send a short mail to the library. Thank you so much!
The survey is online until 8/15/2016.
