Archiving digital research data connected to published manuscripts

The RTG2599 also supports the long-term storage of research data according to the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) principle ( Therefore, after a paper that acknowledges the support of the RTG2599 has been published, the corresponding authors must electronically deposit all original and processed data generated during the corresponding research project on an FAU-maintained server. The RTG coordinator will establish an RTG server in collaboration with the “Regionales Rechenzentrum Erlangen (RRZE).” The coordinator of the new RTG will work closely with the RRZE to develop an RTG server for storage and back-up of all “raw” data used in publications.

Electronic laboratory notebook (ELN)

With the first Dr. rer. nat. cohort, we will establish an electronic laboratory notebook system. We have already started to evaluate commercially available ELNs based on an article published by Publisso, the online platform of the Central Medical Library ( Each ELN is accessible by the respective doctoral candidate and her or his direct RTG supervisor.
