DataverseRegister, store and share your research data
Search for Maastricht University dataverses
DataverseUM is part of DataverseNL, especially for UM researchers.
It is the reliable and safe environment for describing, managing, storing, and sharing different kinds of research data. You can also search for research data stored at DataverseUM; depending upon the access rights you can get access to the data immediately or upon request.
- Storage of your research data for at least up to ten years after the last publication related to your research project;
- Convenient short-term storage during data analysing, as proper backup facilities and access management, are present;
- The suitable registration tool for your (dynamic and) static research data;
- The opportunity for data exchange between entitled researchers;
- The possibility to create a separate database of research data studies of your own research group, as a dataverse is a container for research data studies.
To use DataverseUM for storage or registration of research data, you only have to register with your UM account and to send a request for a dataverse to the library. Or contact the responsible data manager of your faculty.

DataverseNL is a shared service provided by participating institutions and DANS.
It enables online storage, sharing and registration of research data, during the research period and up to the prescribed term of ten years after its completion. DataverseNL standardizes the citation of datasets to make it easier for researchers to publish their data and get credit as well as recognition for their work.
Feel free to search for datasets through the publicly available dataverses of all Dutch member institutions.
DataverseNL is jointly offered by participating institutions and DANS.
DataverseNL uses software developed by Harvard University. The platform is used worldwide. In the Netherlands, DataverseNL has developed into a shared service of 11 institutions (January 2017). The data management is in the hands of the institutions; DANS has been managing the network since 2014.
