About Research Data Management

Good research data management (RDM) makes research more organized and efficient and ensures research findings are verifiable and reproducible. A well-documented research data management plan keeps the research process on track and prevents ambiguity and data loss.

Research data management encompasses the entire research data lifecycle, including the creation, processing, analysis, preservation, sharing, and reuse of research data.

Research Data Management can help you

  • Organize and track versions of your data.
  • Organize and compile information at the end of a project.
  • Enable others to understand your data.
  • Reproduce your work, if required.
  • Share your data with another researcher.
  • Satisfy grant/journal/research ethics board requirements.
