Storage and organisation of active data

UiO has several types of solutions for storing live research data, ranging from small amounts of data (Long Tail Data) to large amounts of data (Big Data). Read more about storage solutions at UiO.  Read more about how to classify data and information and about the data storage guide.


Organisation of active data

Tips on what you should think about when processing and organizing research data:

  • Take care to sort as your work progresses
  • Create good and understandable file names
  • Date the file when the data is obtained
  • Describe/log in brief what is done with the data
  • What types/version of software is being used in the process
  • Not sure what metadata to use? Contact your colleagues or the research library librarian for advice
