RDM is an important task to make research sustainable and comprehensible for other researchers. In our first community survey we asked chemists in Germany about their experience in data management, from the beginning of data production to the publication and reuse of research data. What we deducted from the survey is; less than a fifth of chemists use electronic laboratory notebooks, researchers still record their data manually but save the data digitally often due to missing tools, linking of research data with metadata like methods or information about the sample, ensures the reproducibility of the results and that chemists are open to share their research data with other scientists or to reuse research data from foreign researchers. Good RDM requires a constant endeavour of the researchers but - first and foremost - user-friendly infrastructure and well accepted standards need to be developed for the researchers. The national research data infrastructure initiative for chem. in Germany NFDI4Chem sets out to embrace the challenge of creating a general research data management portal and hereby connecting already existing infrastructure as well as to foster the cultural change in chem. towards digitalization by developing general min. information standards for all methods used and teaching RDM principles to the community. In order to serve the needs of the chem. community at its best, NFDI4Chem accomplishes regular community surveys. The vision of NFDI4Chem is the digitalization of all key steps in chem. research. NFDI4Chem supports scientists in their efforts to collect, store, process, analyze, disclose and re-use research data. NFDI4Chem provides measures to promote Open Science and research data management in agreement with the FAIR data principles and hereby serves the community with a holistic concept for access to research data.
