Think of yourself in ten years when you want to review your research data you generated and analysed within CRC1382. Will you still be able to understand the data properly or re-use it for an other research topic? Or, you are kindly asked by a colleague to share your data – will she or her be allowed to re-use it regarding the licence and rights property?
To make sure you will be able to answer all the questions and to understand your data you need to document the data generation, handling, organization and copyright status. This documentation is called Data Management Plan. It does not contain any data content but just the description of your data.
A quick and easy way to do so is to use a e.g. Word-document which will be named `README` and contains all relevant information. But think of all the projects and members of CRC1382 and what happens when every project group creates an individual `README`-file which will cover different questions and be of different information quality.
