Well organized and well documented research data management is increasingly recognized as an integral part of research in an open science framework. In line with this the recently issued IAMO research data management guideline addresses how IAMO researchers’ data management practices contribute to transparent research that is compliant with rules of good scientific practice and with data privacy, and how such practices can foster productive cooperation in the research community. IAMO offers access to services and support for comprehensive archiving and - whenever possible – sharing of data with the research community according to FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable). The guideline clarifies responsibilities of researchers as well as tools, services and support available to them.
