Digital Data Management and Open Acces Policy

The creation and a gradual implementation of a policy of research data management and open access of the IPHES-CERCA emphasises the centre’s commitment to open science, especially in terms of open access for publications and data resulting from the research workflow. Thus, proper management of research data promotes good practice and quality in research, as it ensures its preservation and free access.

The IPHES-CERCA Digital Data Management and Open Access Policy provides a framework which defines the responsibilities of the centre and its staff in managing their data, preserving it and making it available to the widest possible audience, boosting their impact.

The Policy aims to ensure that research data created, as part of the research process would be FAIR - Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable.
