Data Management Overview

Why Data Management

Research today not only has to be rigorous, innovative and insightful but it also has to be organized.  With more capacity to create and store data, there is also the challenge of making data discoverable, understandable, and reuseable. Many academic journals are requiring submission of relevent data with manuscripts to promote open access and reproducibility of research.

To address these challenges, funding agencies are increasingly mandating that research projects are developed with data management and sharing plans in place. This includes accounting for security, accessibility, sharing, storage, maintenance and reuse.

This website provides resources and guidance for research data management planning and assistance with elements of data management that will be relevent throughout your career. It provides access to tools and resources, including information on funding agency and institutional requirements, that help you manage your data effectively and prepare it for sharing, and reuse.
