It also contains overviews of upcoming releases of Scientific Use Files (SUFs), dates of NEPS training courses in 2021, and current publications based on NEPS data. Other news refer to the extension of the NEPS-ADIAB data portfolio as well as the R package for estimating Plausible Values, to the restructuring of date variables in the SUFs, to the implementation of a convenient dashboard for retrieving one's own user account, to the addition of a video tutorial on Starting Cohort 6 (Adults), and to the RDC's participation in projects within the framework of the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI).
