Depositors agreement

Data deposited as a step in an original research project and managed within the mdw Repository may become an important resource for future research both inside and outside the mdw.

Typical depositors in the mdw Repository are:

  • researchers / principal investigators,
  • research staff or students involved mainly in the creation of the data though especially metadata management tasks will occur in the collection, processing and/or analysing processes too, and
  • external contractors with a role in data creation or other research data related tasks (e.g. scanning or transcription services).

In order to be granted permission to deposit and manage data in the mdw Repository backend systems, depositors must sign a depositor agreement. See "reference version".
