Research Data Management

Support for storing, sharing, and preserving research data.


Data often have a longer lifespan than the research project that creates them. Researchers may continue to work on data after funding has ceased, follow-up projects may analyze or add to the data, and data may be re-used by other researchers. Good data management considers all parts of the research data lifecycle and all aspects of handling, organizing, documenting and enhancing research data, and enabling their sustainability and sharing.
