The DFG Requires Scientific Data Retention, Accessibility and Provides Funding for Academic Institutions
The DFG supports scientists with guidelines and funding to avoid data loss and ensure the accessibility of research data. … Read More
The CVUA in Karlsruhe spent months on getting their data prepared for their analysis. The data was sorted manually according to specific criteria in a very time-consuming process. With rising number of criteria, the time needed to sort the data increased exponentially. Trying to find the required NMR spectra using the related metadata was a challenging process.
Today, the CVUA scientists sort data with a couple of mouse clicks, using LOGS features. LOGS automatically uploads all data from the spectrometer and through search and filter functions makes it permanently accessible for further investigations, linked with all relevant metadata.
The BMRZ at the Goethe University Frankfurt lacked a unified repository for spectroscopy data, making it very difficult to find measurement files for validating publications or evaluating scientific theories. Important metadata such as experimental parameters were not available with measured data, and after scientists left their research group, the whereabouts of data files themselves were lost.
The BMRZ now manages spectroscopy data with LOGS, which automatically uploads data from the spectrometer, ensures easy data access, and helps comply with funding body regulations for long-term data retention. Metadata is saved and available centrally, keeping data reproducible and reusable.
