What is Research Data Management (RDM)?

Research data management (RDM) is the process that guides the collection, documentation, storage, sharing, and preservation of research data throughout the lifecycle of a project.

RDM helps researchers:

  • organize, store, access, reuse, and build upon digital research data
  • securely preserve and use their research data throughout their research projects
  • reuse their data over the course of their careers
  • share their data when appropriate
  • achieve scientific rigor and enable collaboration in their fields
