Research Data Management (RDM) refers to the storage, access and preservation of data produced from a given investigation.
RDM practices cover the entire lifecycle of the data, from planning the investigation to conducting it, and from backing up data as it is created and used to long term preservation of data deliverables after the research investigation has concluded.
Why is RDM Important?
RDM supports effective resource allocation, helps define accurate budgets, supports data security and privacy, and maximizes the scientific impact of data.
What help is available?
UBC researchers can access help and resources for Research Data Management throughout the lifecycle of a research project.
What's coming next?
UBC is looking at how best to support RDM in relation to evolving research needs and funding requirements.
