Research data management

It’s an increasingly common condition of funding that the data associated with your work should be made available, accessible, discoverable, and usable.

Our series of data management modules contain all the information you need to help you comply with these requirements. You will also discover how sharing research data can help with reproducibility issues and provide your peers with existing work to build on.

The modules explain the solutions already in place to support you in sharing, and explore how you can cite data and why that can benefit your career. You will also be introduced to data management plans and receive advice on building an effective one.
