Data Management Topics & Best Practices

Effective and efficient research data management is one of your most critical everyday activities; it's also something for which you've probably never received training.

Our Data Management Best Practices Guide is intended to provide you with the resources you need to improve your workflow, and meet funder requirements to properly manage, document, share & archive your data. Browse the topics in the navigation panel on the left. If you need help with a data management plan, select 'Data Management Plans' in the menu above. 

Please feel free to get in touch with us if you have further questions, or if you would like individual- or research group-level support. If you have useful information that you believe should be added to this site, or have a suggestion of any kind to improve the content, we encourage you to contact us
