Open standard file format for health psychology

Is there an open standard file format for health psychology? Where to find it?

Hi Vasso,

File formats depend on the type of data you process, not as much the discipline you work in. While it’s true that some disciplines work with very specific data types, standards for the same file format will generally not vary between disciplines too much. A simple google search will lead you to some lists of open source file formats for specific data types. A more targeted way to find the best file format for you is to look into which file formats are preferred by the data repository you will deposit your data(set) in. Repository websites will often have an overview of their preferred file formats. They have based these preferences on specific criteria, such as the stability and potential for long term preservation. Adhering to these preferences is the best way to make your data(set) Reusable and Accessible for the long term.
