Managing research data

Research data are broadly defined as all data created by researchers in the course of their work. Research materials include, but are not limited to, physical samples, photographs, written or audio-visual recordings, artwork, questionnaires or other instruments, fieldwork notes, and other items which are either the sources of data or themselves constitute data in a research project.

Research data management includes all the activities associated with data other than using the data including data storage, backup, organisation, archival, sharing or publishing, security and collaboration.
