The data underlying published research are increasingly viewed as outputs of the research process, with the potential to further contribute to scholarship through publishing and reuse. Research data management is the process of planning for and implementing a strategy to prepare data for this scholarly journey. Proper data care will allow you (and others) to understand and utilize your data during and after the life of your research project.
Research Data Management Guidance offers free personalized consultations to help you develop a data management plan document for NSF and other grant proposals. We also provide workshops and other resources such as the Research Data Services Catalog.
