Managing current data
The data – from experiments, simulations, observations, interviews, etc. - you collect during your project(s) are very valuable. Therefore, loosing, accidentally changing or misplacing these - unique, laboriously obtained and sometimes sensitive - data is the last thing you want.
Manage your current data
To manage your data, good Research Data Management practices are essential. These practices include, amongst others, a structured folder system, descriptive and consistent file naming, data documentation, documentation of software used and secure data storage. These, and other practices, are addressed in your Data Management Plan. Click on the pages below to find out more about these and other good practices for managing your data.
