If you contact us, a member of CSDA staff will be assigned to you for continuous negotiation of the preservation terms and consultation of any issues. At the beginning of the process, basic information about your data and the underlying research study needs to be clarified:
- title of your project and/or database,
- the institutional context in which your study was undertaken (which institution conducted the study and who owns the rights to your data, who was the principal investigator),
- basic information about your project (topic, orientation, methodology),
- basic information about your database (type of data, anonymity, size – number of files, formats, media),
- basic information about the related documentation (availability, state, formats).
This information will help us assess whether we are able to accept your data for preservation.
