Good Research Data Management (RDM) is important for you, your institution, collaborators, funders and other researchers:
Data Management and Research Ethics:
Data Management Plans
Your Data Management Plan (DMP) describes what you will collect and how you will organise, analyse, preserve and share your data, taking into account the whole lifecycle of your data. Completing it helps ensure you meet funder requirements (where applicable) and you should complete it as early as possible during the research project.
If your research project is externally funded by a research council or charitable organisation, check if they have their own DMP
Otherwise, you should download and use the Leeds Beckett University DMP
Leeds Beckett University has agreed the following policy on Research Data Management, covering the activities of all researchers in our institution, both staff and students. It is acknowledged that full implementation of this policy will take place over a period of time.
Data Tree is a free online course offering modules to teach you about different aspects of data management. You can complete it as a course or just dip in it as you need to. To sign up, visit the Data Tree website.
