About this guide
Why a research data management toolkit?
Today, we create research data in greater volumes than ever before. Therefore, we must ensure that it is safely managed, stored, shared and preserved to act as an evidence base for findings and also so that it can be a valuable resource for future research use.
This toolkit is designed to help the research community discover information on all aspects of research data management – this is currently spread all over the internet and often difficult to reach. It draws together advice and guidance and provides links to best practice in the area.
Research data lifecycle
The RDM toolkit is themed according to the various stages in the research data lifecycle.
