* Data and statistics: What is RDM (Research Data Management)?

Locate and use numeric, statistical, geospatial, and qualitative data sets, and find data repositories to house your own data.


Research data management concerns the organization of data, from its entry to the research cycle through to the dissemination and archiving of valuable results.

Research Data Management 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.
It concerns how you:

  1. Create data and plan for its use
  2. Organize, structure, and name data
  3. Keep it – make it secure, provide access, store and back it up
  4. Find information resources, and share with collaborators and more broadly, publish and get cited.
