There has been a data deluge in the research sector in recent years, accompanied by an increasing tendency to allow the scientific community access to original research data and the procedures used in order to enable study results to be fully reproduced.

Furthermore, funding bodies, including the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), are reacting to this changing landscape with research data management plans and open research data policies.
