Abstract (english): 
While there is a number of frameworks and protocols in Agent-Based Modeling (ABM) that support the documentation of different aspects of a simulation study, it is surprising to find only a small number dealing with the handling of data. Here we present the results of discussions we had on the topic at the Lorentz Center workshop on Integrating Qualitative and Quantitative Evidence using Social Simulation (8-12 April 2019, Leiden, the Netherlands). We believe that important distinctions to be considered in the context of data use documentation are the differences of data use in relation to modeling approaches (theory driven etc.) and data documentation needs at the different stages in the modeling process (conceptualization, specification, calibration, and validation). What we hope to achieve by presenting this paper at this conference, with the help of the community, is to move forward the development of a generally acceptable protocol for documenting data use in the ABM process.
