Impact on Scientific Data Management

In the research data landscape, there is a high demand for a sustainable and meaningful handling of a main product of scientific work - research data.

Since digital data production has increased rapidly in recent years and an end to this growth is not foreseeable, the availability of these growing volumes of data must be ensured not only for current research but also for future generations. The Leibniz Data Manager was developed to provide scientists with a tool to improve the usability of research data.

The Leibniz Data Manager provides a data management system that makes it possible to check the contents of research data sets for their potential application to the respective domain - without having to download them beforehand.

Therefore, the Leibniz Data Manager enables the visualization of different research data formats and thus supports the 'screening' of data sets for their potential benefits. As a visualization and management tool, the Leibniz Data Manager can be implemented on top of classical research data repositories, which often focus on the (long-term) archiving and publication of research data.
