"Good data management practice allows reliable verification of results and permits new and innovative research built on existing information. This is important if the full value of public investment in research is to be realized."
     - Managing and Sharing Data: Best Practices for
      Researchers, UK Data Archive.

Academic Trends

  • Funding agencies are increasingly requiring data management plans in grant applications.
  • Many journals require submission of research data when an article is accepted for publication.
  • Shared research data may improve project impact both in terms of additional citations and improved visibility of the research, the researcher, and the institution.

What is Research Data Management?

  • Grant Proposal: Data Management Plan to document use of research data
  • Research Design: Dataset organization and management, documentation, choosing standardized metadata to be used throughout the research process
  • Data Analysis: Data storage, security, and backup
  • After Publication: Preserve, share, and archive research data.

The Rutgers University Libraries (RUL) offers a unique set of resources to assist you in managing your data through the research process. The historical goal of the library has been to aggregate, preserve, and share information. RUL is also a major campus information technology provider, which puts RUL in a unique position to support your data management needs with a strong technology infrastructure and the processes to preserve and share your data.
