Introduction

Digital data are the basis of nearly all scientific research. The increasing amount and complexity of scientific data pose challenges to keeping data organized, documented, and available for verification of research and new analyses leading to new insights.

The purpose of this website is to provide data management guidance throughout the research process, introducing Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL) services to support researchers of the Max Planck Society.

This website is a guide for initial orientation and has used for this a simplified representation for the purpose of clarity and quick, easy readability. This includes, of course, no obligation for Max Planck researchers. And this also implies that the presented content not only corresponds to current practice within the Max Planck Society.
