Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

17 December 2018

DANS wishes you a year filled with FAIR-data and open science!

The year 2018 was full of open access and FAIR-data. The data archives at DANS experienced quite a growth. Most research centres and (applied science) universities have access to a repository for research data. Although research data have increasingly become more open and shared, concerns have risen as well: concerning the protection of privacy of the individual (respondents, patients) and the ability to replicate the results of research.

European research-funds will cooperatively publish requirements for datamanagement plans and set standards for repositories. The international focus will be on further application of the FAIR principles; more and more research data will become Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable.

We hope to continue working on excellent accessibility of digital research data in 2019. 

We wish you happy holidays and a FAIR new year!

On behalf of all colleagues,

Peter Doorn
