Legal aspects and funder requirements
On this page you find information about national laws and guidelines, as well as requirements from funders regarding research data management.
If you handle research data with personal data, special legislation applies. You must also register the processing of personal data in a special register at LU, called PULU.
Research carried out on humans or animals may entail that you as a researcher must apply for an ethical permit in accordance with regulations for ethical review.
The research at a university is a public authority activity. The documents produced in research belong to the University.
The university is subject to The Swedish National Archives Regulation on preservation and disposal, which stipulates how archiving of research data is to be performed.
There is a lot of information and data within the University that needs to be protected and managed in a safe way. The Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) has a task to develop and manage information security efforts within the university, e.g. setting requirements, coordinating, supporting, training, and monitoring compliance.
Requirements from research funders
The Swedish Research Council has requirements for DMP and a recommendation on making research data available.
Riksbankens Jubileumsfond has recommendations for both DMP and access to research data.
