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, links to other resources for more information, and details about data hosting options.

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!
