Most publications on Corona are currently freely accessible (Open Access), and many of the publications allow direct access to the original data on which they are based (Open Data). This transparency makes it possible to correct errors more quickly, for example to find an important vaccine.
„During the Corona pandemic, active research data management will therefore continue to be of particular importance, as reflected in demands, discussion papers and guidelines such as those of the German Research Foundation (DFG), the German Rectors‘ Conference (HRK), the Alliance of German Science Organisations and the RfII. Digital skills are continuously being developed locally in order to actively shape digital change. This takes place in consultations as well as in training courses (workshops, coffee lectures, etc.), also during the corona pandemic in online formats, for example via BigBlueButton.“
