The digital environment requires new skills from researchers. For example, a researcher has to understand the complexities of the relevant legislation, or know how to choose suitable IT solutions to keep their data secure. Fortunately, researchers are not left to navigate these issues alone, as we have several services available for data management.
For many researchers, the the Academy of Finland’s September 2019 Call makes data management planning a topical issue. The University of Helsinki Data Support provides support for the preparation of data management plans (DMP). We asked four UH researchers how well the Data Support services responded to their needs.
