Research data management (RDM) refers to the handling, storage, curation, preservation and provision of continuing access to analogue and digital research data. While the nature of the data that might be collected for a research project might be varied - even within a project - good data management skills are essential in all cases.
To promote good practice at every stage of the research lifecycle, the Library has created a collection of online resources and webinars to provide practical advice and guidance with collecting, storing, retrieving and preserving your data.
This online course considers the importance of effective research data management and its relationship to the responsible conduct of research. It aims to raise awareness of good practice in managing research data and suggests tools and techniques to help you apply it within your own work context. It also offers practical guidance on how to create a data management plan and maintain it through the course of your research.
