Preparation and Depositing
Data that results from research projects is to be archived and provided to the research community for subsequent usage as far as this is possible. This is accomplished with the help of CLARIN. Our data policy supports good scientific practice, so that research results and analyses get reproducible. This means that one can properly refer to data, cite it, and consequently make large data records unnecessary. This practice also enables the inclusion of the data into the bibliography. The data gets archived in CLARIN centres and is thus provided to the research community. CLARIN supports research projects and researchers in archiving research data in CLARIN centres.
CLARIN centres are specialised in different areas and data types, from historical data, regional data, speech recording to specialised analytical data. When you search for a CLARIN-D centre, you can learn about the possibilities for support and cooperation that the specific centre offers. This includes support in the preparation of the resources, the choice of the right data formats, development and quality control. CLARIN also supports you when complementing your project proposal with a data management plan that covers all essential aspects of properly managing research data - including the archiving after the completion of the project. It is either possible to search for a CLARIN centre that fits your data, or to complement your project proposal with a data management plan that covers all essential aspects of properly managing research data.
