Data Access Unit (DAU)
Örebro University Data Access Unit (DAU) supports the university's researchers and post-graduate students with questions and thoughts about management, accessibility, and preservation of research data. The DAU gives the researcher support and advice throughout the research data process.
The support includes helping the researchers with the data management plan, metadata standard, and advice about archiving, legal issues and IT.
The DAU will also work with guidelines and checklists for different stages of the research data life cycle, to make the management, accessibility, and preservation easier for the researcher. The DAU will also be involved in working with the university's policy documents about Open Science and research data.
In February 2019, Örebro University's vice-chancellor constituted the DAU with the University Library as a coordinating role. The DAU's work will be led by the Open Science Coordinator.
