Research Data Management: Welcome

Research Data Management

Research Data Management (RDM) is the way you manage, store and structure data produced from the initiation to the completion of your research project.  Researchers need to be aware of how they propose to manage, preserve and share their data even after the project is complete. As well as representing good research practice and enhancing the availability of data to the research community, managing and sharing research data is often required by funding bodies, along with Aston University Research Data Management Policy. RDM is part of the wider Open Research movement.
