Research Data Management

Research Data Management (RDM) is an important part of the research process. RDM happens at each stage of the research data lifecycle and should be incorporated into each stage as appropriate. Good data management helps to ensure that data are accurate, reliable, comprehensible, and reproducible (when appropriate). This in turn leads to more efficiency in research processes, more confidence in research results and more reliable peer review. Good data management is also necessary to comply with many funding and publishing requirements.
