Data archiving and cooperation with medical researchers - An example from Denmark

Presenter 1
Bodil Stenvig
Danish Data Archives

In the DDA a special unit called DDA Health collects preserves and disseminates health-related research data. A very important and necessary part of the effort of the DDA Health aims at increasing medical researchers’ awareness of the need for good archiving practices. So we have stimulated voluntary archiving by collaboration with medical research groups and medical researchers in many ways. The efforts has been on visibility of DDA Health and its values; the means have been a website, a newsletter, site visits, presentations in connection with various kinds of scientific gatherings, contributions to undergraduate courses and research training courses, and communication via a network of interested researchers. In the paper I will focus on the development of cooperation between DDA Health and the medical researchers for instance by making it visible that the DDA Health can add value to research data from medical research by supporting them with DDI 3 and GCP.
