What is Research Data Management?

Research data management (RDM) is the care and maintenance of data produced during a research cycle. It includes how you:

  • create and organize data
  • process data
  • analyze data
  • preserve and archive data
  • give access to data
  • reuse data

Managing your research data well is one best ways to ensure standardization, reproducibility, and the ability to disseminate your research to others with minimal efforts and time.
