Making data available for subsequent use by third parties in turn requires adequate data management, for example with regard to the comprehensibility of the data or with regard to the legal requirements. To support researchers in empirical educational research, the collaborative project Domain Data Protocols for Empirical Educational Research has been developing so-called Domain Data Protocols since June 2019.

A central aspect in the development of these protocols is the involvement of various stakeholders in the research community. In order to improve contact with our experts and to keep the interested (international) research community continuously informed about the work and progress of the project, a project website is now being published:
