Research Data Management (RDM) refers to all aspects of handling research data. This includes creating, organizing, storing, preserving, and sharing research data. It is an essential aspect of responsible research practice.

Managing your data will save you time and make the research process more efficient ensuring results remain safe, credible, and usable in the long-term.

RDM occurs throughout the entire lifecycle of the research project; in many cases, even after the project has finished.
