Research data

Data is produced in all academic disciplines. It is generated using various methods, such as interviews, surveys, experiments, measurements or the analysis of historical and philological sources. Depending on the method used and the specific research question, such data – usually called “research data” – is available in a variety of formats. Examples include spreadsheets, electronic text documents, photos, films and databases. As such, research data may be the subject of research, it may evolve during the research process, or it may be the outcome of research.
