The step-by-step guide for data preparation and data publication supports you with documenting your metadata and datasets and with preparing them for publication in a FAIR data repository. Following this guide will help you take into account good practise principles as well as funder requirements and guidelines that apply at ETH Zurich. It also provides you with information about where to find relevant information and support at ETH Zurich. The guide is structured in three parts: “Part I – Metadata Preparation”, “Part II – Data Preparation”, and “Part III – Data Publication”. Each of these parts is presented below and a collection of all three illustrations is available in the following PDF file for download. It is strongly recommended to engage with Part I and Part II before proceeding with Part III of the step-by-step guide.

Part I – Metadata Preparation 

Part I of the step-by-step guide supports you in collecting important metadata (i.e., data about your data), which is a crucial step before arranging your actual research data for reuse, publication, or archiving. 

The hyperlinks with supporting information are available in the PDF above.

Part II – Data Preparation 

Part II of the step-by-step guide supports you to decide which part of your data can be published directly and for which part of your data only metadata can be provided. This is a crucial step before the actual publication or archiving of your research data. 

The hyperlinks with supporting information are available in the PDF above.

Part III – Data Publication 

Part III of the step-by-step guide supports you when you finally want to publish your data collection or dataset, including your data, metadata, and potentially also accompanying code scripts. It is strongly recommended to engage with Part I and Part II before proceeding with this third part of the step-by-step guide. 

The hyperlinks with supporting information are available in the PDF above.
