As academic research moves into the age of digitalization, professional Research Data Management (RDM) is increasingly viewed as important across all fields of inquiry.
The Research Data Service Center supports RDM throughout the entire research process – from research project planning and application filing to the publication and archiving of research data. The Service Point provides advice and designs basic, general RDM services for academics all across the University.

Open Science

Promotion of an Open Science culture is one of the pillars forming the Excellence Strategy of the University of Bonn.
Open Science encompasses a number of measures that assure that research transparency, traceability and reproducibility are met by the increasingly digital scientific community. By incorporating structured research data management into your work, you ensure that your research data are understandable and reusable, also beyond your current project.

Together with the Research Data Service Center, the Open Access Service Center supports you in making your research results openly accessible.
