Data Management

Research Data Management

Research Data Management (RDM) is an overarching theme covering the creation, storage, use, and preservation of research data.

Research data is usually defined as being the information which can support, validate and reproduce your published research findings. Data can include: Excel spreadsheets, software code, simulations, interviews, and images. Data doesn't have to be in digital forms. Non-digital information can also be research data. Examples could include: lab books, questionnaires, medical specimens, and rock samples.

Visit the Research Data Repository or get support in archiving your data.

The majority of major funders have research data policies, see further information section for more details.
