The appropriate management of research data means that you and others can easily find and access data when and where you need it.
This guide will help you to determine your research data management needs and create a data management plan. It includes guidelines on managing your data, from storage and access to metadata. It also includes information about keeping a record of your data, and sharing data so that it is appropriately managed even when your project is complete.
