Research Data Management

Recommendations and resources for managing qualitative and quantitative data collected or created in the research process.

Managing Your Data

Planning, managing, and maintaining data that is collected or created through research is a critical part of the research process. This guide provides an introduction to the key questions you need to answer about your data and links to other resources for more information and tips.

In this context, "data" is whatever information, specimen, or object collected or created by the researchers. Observed data, experimental results, textual analysis, physical materials, etc. Not just numbers!
