Research Data Management: Introduction

Managing, preserving, and sharing research data.


Consult with a member of our data management team for assistance with developing a data management plan, or in locating, describing, storing, or sharing data. Following best practices in research data management can help you, your lab, or center secure grant funding and create data output that becomes part of the scholarly record. The FAIR Data Principles provide a guideline for facilitating Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, and Re-usability.

Given the importance of managing data, many funding agencies are requiring that plans for managing data be submitted with grant applications.  An effective plan to collect, share, reproduce and preserve data may increase the impact of your research.
