Frequently asked questions
Can I deposit my research data with DANS?
Yes, you can! Together we will ensure the long-term accessibility of your research data. Deposit your data here. If your organisation is associated with DataverseNL, the repository service for universities and other research institutions, you can deposit data with your organisation’s Dataverse. More information about DataverseNL can be found here.
How can I log in?
Go to the login page. Preferably use your institutional account via SURFconext. If your organisation is not a SURFconext member, you can create an EASY account here.
How can I deposit data?
Click ‘Deposit your data’, fill in the fields and enter the metadata. Accept the deposit agreement and click ‘Save draft’ or ‘Submit deposit’. A data manager will verify the dataset, after which it is published. The more metadata you provide, the easier your dataset will be found.
Which licenses can I choose?
Information about licenses and other legal issues can be found on this page.
What information do I need to provide when depositing data?
In addition to general information about your datasets, such as title, author and abstract, DANS uses discipline-specific delivery specifications. More information can be found here.
Are there any costs associated with storing my data in a Data Station?
DANS does not have a fixed price for depositing data. The rates are determined by a number of factors. Depositing is free of charge for individual researchers with datasets under 50 GB. For larger datasets, please contact DANS. More information can be found on this page.
