There are various tools and services available to help you follow good practice in RDM. Many of them offer free users accounts for your personal use. However, in most cases, they are not compliant with national and institutional policies, especially when it comes to the privacy of data. An institutional license can also offer more features and a higher level of customization in comparison with the free version. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to give priority to solutions that are provided by EUR or your faculty. Avoid free versions as much as possible.
EUR and faculties do offer a set of services that are at your disposal for data storage, transfer of data, and data repository. Click on buttons below to learn more.
