NTNU requires good research data management
Research data at NTNU should be managed according to best practice and be as open as possible and as closed as necessary. Data containing personal information must be processed according to GDPR and NTNU guidelines.
Data Management Plan (DMP)All research projects at NTNU should develop a Data Management Plan describing how the research data will be managed.
NTNU Open Research DataResearch data at NTNU can be published and shared openly in our repository for research data, NTNU Open Research Data.
Already existing data could be of use in your research project.
Here are some resources and databases where you can search for data:
- BASE (Bielefeld Academic Search Engine)
- Elsevier Data Search
- Google data search (Beta)
- Registry of Research Data Repositories
It is also possible request access to several different public databases and registries:
If you use existing data, it is important to cite the data set. for an example of how to do this, see advice from DataCite.
All research projects at NTNU should develop a data management plan.
- There are several different tools that can be useful when writing a DMP.
If your research data includes personal data, you should as a default report you project to NSD. For more information:
NTNU-adapted guidance to the Science Europe template in DMPOnline can be found here.
Certain requirements apply to processing of personal data in research projects.
For an overview of relevant regulations and guidelines, se Collection of personal data for research projects.
A risk assessment must be performed before the processing of personal data can begin. For template and more information, se Risk assessment of research projects with personal data.
All student- and research projects processing personal data must send a notification to NSD/Sikt (the only exception is health research projects at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences). Link to the notification form can be found at the NSD website. Medical and health research projects must also be approved by the Regional Committee for Medical and Health Research Ethics (REK) before the project is initiated.
The storage guide
The storage guide provides an overview over several of the available solutions at NTNU.
The data collection guide gives an overview of digital tools that are recommended when recording sound and video, for example when doing interviews.
Research data and source code at NTNU should be archived and published as open as possible.
We have regular courses on data management plans in the Virtual Library.
