Research Data Management

Research data management concerns the organization of data, from its entry to the research cycle through to the dissemination and archiving of results. It aims to ensure reliable verification of results, and permit new and innovative research built on existing information. It concerns how researchers:
1) Create data and plan for its use; 2) Organize, structure, and name data; 3) Keep the data including making it secure, providing access, storage, and backing it up; and 4) Find information resources, and share with collaborators, publish and get cited.
