KIT employees can publish and archive research data related to publications free of charge via the repository KITopen. The repository is open for all disciplines and data types. The research data is stored specifically for reuse and reproducibility. The published research data receives a DOI and necessary metadata to guarantee traceability. The data will be stored directly at the KIT (via the regional service bwDataArchive) for at least 10 years. Thus, the recommendations of the German Research Foundation (DFG) for the protection and storage of research data are guaranteed.
Information for publishing in KITopen is listed here.
