Preparation and Depositing
Data that result from research projects is to be archived and provided to the research community for subsequent usage as far as possible. Those requests are accomplished by the help of CLARIN. The data policy supports good scientific practice (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 therefore provided to the research community. CLARIN supports research projects and researchers in archiving research data in CLARIN centres.
CLARIN centers are specialised in different areas and data types, from historical data, regional data, speech recording to specialised analytical data. If in search of a CLARIN-D centre one can directly refer to that and learn about possibilities for support and cooperation that the specific center offers. This includes support in preparation of the resources, 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 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.
