What is Research Data Management?

Research Data Management is a general term covering the organization, structure, storage, and legal care for data used or generated during a research project. It is important that data are well-organized and cared for as they often have a longer lifespan than the research project that creates them. Researchers may continue to work on data after funding has ceased, follow-up projects may analyse or add to the data, and data may be reused by other researchers.
