Research Data Management

Research Data Management

Research data management (RDM) concerns the organisation of data, from its entry to the research cycle through to the dissemination and archiving of valuable results. RDM helps researchers navigate the increasingly complex landscape of data planning, storage, and sharing.  It is part of the research process, and aims to make the research process as efficient as possible, and meet expectations and requirements of the university, research funders, and legislation.

RDM  concerns how you:

  • Create or collect data and plan for its use,
  • Organise, structure, and name data (e.g. files),
  • Keep it – make it secure, provide access, store and back it up,
  • Find information resources, and share with collaborators and more broadly, publish and get cited, allowing for your data to be reused.
