Data Archive

For all research projects the archival rules state that we need to keep your data accessible and archived for 10 years after you finish the project or PhD. This means that you need to inform the helpdek what data should be stored in the Sterrewacht Archive.

What data to archive

In principle your research project should be 'replayable' in that your final science data results can be reproduced from the original data and the processing recipies. It is this not necessary to archive all intermediate processing steps data. Thus the archive should contain:

  • The original data (or a pointer to observatory/institute respository)
  • Your data processing scripts
  • The final products that are part of your publications
