After you are finished with your research, there are different options for what to do with the research data. Check in advance which of those options apply to your situation.
In both cases, it is vital that you remove all personal copies from your devices, e.g. laptop or USB stick. Don't forget to remove the files from the trash bin on your devices as well.
Before you share the data with others or before you transfer the data to your school, anonymize or pseudonymize the data if possible.
If you conduct your research for a Professorship or Living Lab (IWP) assignment, there is a possibility that others (students or researchers) will also use parts of the data for further research. To facilitate this, it is important to provide sufficient information about the data you worked with: this is called the metadata of the research data. The richer the descriptions provided to the data are, the easier it is for another (student) researcher to understand and use the data for further research.
Discuss with your supervisor whether the data will be used by others. If this is the case, the following metadata are relevant:
After your graduation, you are obliged to hand over a digital copy of your thesis to Hanze UAS, according to the student charter, article 3.18 on Copy Rights. You can find more information about the student charter, including the document itself, at Myhanze.nl. The graduation assignment includes both the thesis and the research data and related documentation such as informed consent forms and empty surveys.
The documents should be anonymized or pseudonymized, if possible. It is important to remove all personal copies from your devices.
There are situations when handling over the data to your school is not allowed, for example if you use (confidential) company data and signed a non-disclosure agreement (NDA). Contact your supervisor if you are not sure what applies to your situation.
