About Data Management

Research Data Management is a function of the research process, aiming to make it as efficient as possible and meet requirements of the university, research funding agencies, and legislation.

Some agencies require all research projects to have a data management plans (DMP). The DMP states what a researcher is going to do with their data during and after their research project is concluded. The DMP usually include a description of:

  • the types of data that will be created

  • the standards and metadata that will be used with the data

  • how these data will be accessed and shared

  • policies and provisions for the reuse of the data

  • plans for the long term archiving of the data
