## Past Event from 27th July
### Past Pad
### Erik Buunk (Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition)
### Blake Fitch (Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics)
## Maike Kleemeyer (Max Planck Institute for Human Development) "Research data management: Where/How/Why?"
Standardized data workflow
- (ethics pproval)
- study registration
- meta data
- allocation of storage space (readme, data, code, materials, ...), using [BIDS](https://bids.neuroimaging.io/) structure
Idea for haveing a look at another MPIs:
* **Cornelius Abel** (MPI AE): Where does all the aesthetic data go? Research data workflow at the MPI for empirical aesthetics (presentation slides, MPG IP needed), 20 April 2021, https://pure.mpg.de/rest/items/item_3316218_1/component/file_3316219/content (*MPG IP needed*)
* internal OSF-Instance at the Max Planck Institute for Research on Collective Goods
Acess to Git instance
In GitLab one can set very fine-grained access-rights (admin, edit, read-only, etc.). to retain access rights when a researcher leaves, one could by default add the research group leader or RDM coordinator as an admin to every project. regarding publishing, projects can be “private” (only project members), “internal” (only institute members) or “public” (accessible publicly without login). GitLab servers are already hosted at several institutes and at the GWDG. With DataLad one can collaboratively work on datasets and host dataset meta data on GitLab, with gives you all this collaborative infrastructure “for free”.
Q: Does the storage space registration involve a "duration"/"lifetime"? (eg. how long will the data be maintained, when to archive)
Answer: 1. Active data storage usage, 2. in-actice storage, 3. archiving
Q: Modularity; data should be separated from code; application to different projects; code interacts with data (generate a report); how to adapt pre-BIDS folder-structures?
A: everybody is free to choose their structure, but needs to ensure that others can work with it (that's the nice thing about a standard like BIDS);
Q/C: I find it difficult to have data, code, and participant data in the same folder... (IMHO Code should reside in a repo; do your colleagues hold a copy in this structure?)
A: code can be cloned/synced with the data; data is mainly shared inside the institute (so no GDPR issue here)
