We have compiled a collection of guides for best practices in data management of various types of data. This page will be continuously updated as we create more guides.

Guides to good research data management
Our guides to best practice are based on material originated from Archaeology Data Service, but have been updated, revised and expanded to include other disciplines than archaeology. The guides present an overview of suitable file formats and other things to bear in mind when you work with different types of research data. This also includes what to consider when publishing/archiving data. The guides have been translated into English in cooperation with the EU-funded infrastructure ARIADNE. ARIADNE is responsible for updating the English guides and keeping them accessible.
