The DANS team wishes you happy holidays and a wonderful 2022.

DANS and ODISSEI created a survey which aims to get in touch with data stewards and data professionals working with (quantitative) social science data to learn more about their Research Data Management and FAIR data practices.

From 6 to 8 October, the WoSSS21 took place. DANS was sponsor and co-organiser of the event. It is now possible to watch the videos of all sessions online.

DataLink is the digital newsletter about sharing and reusing research data. DataLink contains a collection of the latest news items from the DANS website and is published every six weeks.

Software Heritage (SH) plays an important role in Open Science developments: the institute preserves software source code with the aim of keeping it accessible in the long term.

The Cultural Heritage Agency (RCE) and DANS have launched DataverseNL as the new DCCD portal for the deposit, download and (inter)national distribution of tree ring data.

Wherever research is carried out, questions regarding open access and the reuse of research data come into play. These questions also occur in forensic research. During a Science Café session of the Netherlands Forensic Institute, Cees Hof (DANS) highlighted the role of repositories in making research data Open and FAIR.

On Thursday, December 9, there will be another meeting of the Data Stewards Interest Group (DTL DSIG). This time, DANS will host the meeting and the theme will be ‘Trainings surrounding Data Stewardship’.
