Research data applies to all disciplines and can be defined as anything that has been created or gathered that helps you to answer your research question (NEH, 2018), regardless of whether it is in a physical or digital format (RCUK, 2016).
Research Data Management support is provided by several university departments depending on the nature of the query:
Funding & costing for RDM within grant bids; legal & ethical considerations; patents & Intellectual Property; Data Sharing Agreements
Technical solutions for data management e.g. costing for bespoke storage; device encryption; data destruction and information security. Raise a self-service request to access any of these services.
Your Information Specialists can advise on issues relating to Open Data; data sharing; repositories and publications. The team can be contacted via the generic email: firstname.lastname@example.org
There are some really good basic training courses and resources out there that can help you begin to navigate what good research data management might look like for your project. We have included a few of them below.
