Abstract
Due to rapid digital developments and increasing volume of data, the way research data and its use are handled is changing fundamentally. For this reason, the Helmholtz Association, at its General Assembly in September 2016, approved the document: “Make information as a resource more easy to use! A position paper on handling research data in the Helmholtz Association” (below: “position paper”). In this paper, the General Assembly requests that the centres set up corresponding guidelines for handling research data and commissioned Mr. Marquardt in his function as a supporting member of the Open Science working group, in coordination with the working group, to introduce the operationalisation of the paper. This document is directed to the relevant individuals in the centres who are responsible for upholding the basic principles approved in the position paper. The aim of these recommendations is therefore to support the centres in formulating their respective guidelines. These guidelines should be made publicly accessible to all interested parties. Here, it is taken for granted that the implementation of the recommendations presented in this paper lies within the area of responsibility of the centres and that it must be adapted to the respective specific research and disciplinary conditions. These recommendations contain suggestions as to what should be regulated in the centre-specific implementation, without specifying what form the individual aspects should take.
