Grants, funding, open access and data management
Research funders have tightened the conditions for funding. As a researcher, you are obliged to publish your results and datasets in open access if possible.
The grant application forms contain sections on 'open access' and on 'data management'. The Mediacentrum can help you filling these sections. Please contact Esther Eisen-Tijssen(opens in new tab).
For other questions regarding grants for applied research, please contact Karin de Jonge of the Support Office.
Alles over onderzoek
Are you a researcher at Windesheim? The site Alles over onderzoek (opens in new tab)(Dutch) gives you more information about practice-based research within Windesheim. The website is primarily aimed at colleagues in our research groups.
Would you like to do research? The website also give a good impression of what it entails to be a researcher in a university of applied sciences.
As a researcher you will collect data during the research process. The research funder wants to know how you deal with this data. For example, where you store the data, what you have arranged with respect to privacy-sensitive data and whether you make the data available for reuse after the research. This is described in a Data Management Plan.
The Mediacentrum can help you with this. We collaborate with colleagues from the IT department on this, among others. Good data management contributes to improving the quality of your research data.

Reference tools - Endnote
Research often goes hand in hand with a literature search. You can save and organise the literature found using a reference tool. Such a tool helps you build your own bibliography. The reference can be exported to your document in Word. This can then be used to include relevant references in your own document.
There are various tools available, such as Mendeley or Zotero. These are free, web-based programmes that are not supported by Windesheim. Windesheim has a licence for EndNote.
The key features of EndNote are:
- Building a personal file (library) with literature references
- Direct export from databases to your own library
- Sharing references
- EndNote and Word compatibility
EndNote is available as a desktop version and online. With the desktop version, the literature is stored on your own computer. The online version saves the literature in the cloud, so that you can access the information from any location. The two versions can be synchronised.
The desktop version of EndNote(opens in new tab), which is only available to staff, can be installed via the start menu (Software Center). Installation must take place on campus.
The online version, EndNoteWeb(opens in new tab), can be used by both staff and students.
Please contact Rensje Wicherson(opens in new tab) for more information on the use of EndNote.
