Data Management covers the whole lifecycle of your research data. It includes planning your work, managing your live data, preserving your research data for the long-term, and sharing your data with others. It applies to all disciplines and to all forms of data.
Many research funders have research data requirements.
The University has a Research Data Management policy that recognises that effective research data management is a key component of good research practice and that it contributes to a culture of research excellence.
