FDZ Bildung - Part of the national research data infrastructure
In order to optimally address the scientific community, the research data centre - FDZ Bildung -has been integrated into the overarching national research data infrastructure.
The Research Data Centre for Education adheres to criteria outlined by the German Data Forum (PDF), RatSWD Rat für Sozial- und Wirtschaftsdaten for research data infrastructures, and it was accredited in October 2012. Moreover, FDZ Bildung has formulated its own guidelines.
Complaints office at RatSWD: RatSWD established a complaints office in July 2016. You can use a contact form on the website in case of a problem concerning the rightful use of data from FDZ Bildung which cannot be resolved in exchange with a responsible editor at FDZ, to raise the issue with the RatSWD. The contact form and details concerning the responsibility and procedure can be found on the RatSWD website: www.ratswd.de/beschwerdestelle .
FDZ Bildung is a partner in the research data alliance for education (VerbundFDB). Together with other data centres, the alliance is preparing an overarching service for educational research with regard to research data and research data management. Please see www.forschungsdaten-bildung.de , where educational researchers can transfer data for storage and delivery, search for data contents, find out about research data management, and accept offered counselling and training.
