Open Research Data
Open Research Data is a part of the Open Science initiative, which was introduced by the SNF to support better, more effective research, to foster collaborations, and, ultimately, to enable effortless sharing of acquired knowledge. The Open Science initiative puts emphasis on a good practice in research data management that leads to reproducible research findings and on promoting open access.
The Department of Biomedicine follows the suggested guiding principles to generate FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Re-usable) and freely accessible data. However, not all research data can be shared openly. Well accepted exceptions are data that require managed access in order to maintain confidentiality or individual privacy. In these cases, the DBM follows the suggested security guidelines to minimize the risk of unauthorized data access.
