Managing research data is a part of good research practice. Moreover, many funders require that beneficiaries provide a Data Management Plan to show how the data will be managed throughout the research project.

Additionally, managing your data:

  • Saves you time
  • Prevents the loss of irreplaceable data
  • Prevents duplication or work
  • Reduces costs
  • Makes data understandable and usable
  • Preserves valuable data for the future
