Data discoverability consulting

Best practices for research data visibility in metasearch engines like Google & Co.

Finding data is difficult. A lot can go wrong between formulating a research idea and identifying suitable research data.

In addition, we also offer personal interviews and visibility analysis with Sistrix and other tools for FDZ. In a conversation lasting about an hour, individual strengths and weaknesses are discussed, in each case tailored to the needs and interests of the conversation partners. The goal is to work out concrete tips and measures and to benefit from the experience of other FDZs that have already gone through this process.
