Completing the Project

When the project is nearing completion, you need to decide how your data is to be managed in the future.

  • Are there any specific requirements from funders or other parties, as to how data should be made available or archived? How will you go about meeting these requirements?
  • According to Swedish law, research data must be archived, read more at Archiving Research Data.

Archiving Research Data

  • If you want to make your data accessible, there are many different services available. Go to our page on Sharing Data to find out more. If your data contains personal data, it must be de-identified before it is made available.

De-identify personal data

Sharing your data

  • A prerequisite for making data usable after have been made available or archived is that it is organised and described in a systematic way.

Organise and describe your data in a systematic way

  • When archiving or making data available for reuse, it is important that the data is saved in persistent formats. Sometimes, the same data may need to be made available in several formats.

Persistent format for your data

  • If the project has resulted in, for example, a public database or web publication, this should be saved in an additional format. This action ensures the possibilities of long-term preservation when the project is finished. Contact the library if you wish to discuss how to go about this in the best way.
