Research Data Management: Essentials

Good management of research data is vital. I can also save you considerable time and effort later in your research project.

  • How much data would you lose if your laptop was stolen?
  • What data should you encrypy?
  • Would anyone understand your data collection if your shared it with them?
  • What will happen to your data at the end of the project?

The need for good Research Date Management (RDM) has been highlighted by all major funding bodies. This session will describe essential data practices, help you plan your RDM strategies and highlight where help is available.
