USEFUL TIPS FOR GOOD DATA MANAGEMENT USEFUL TIPS FOR GOOD DATA MANAGEMENT

Research data are the recorded factual materials necessary to support or validate a research project's observations, findings or outputs (irrespective of the format in which they are created).

Digital curation is about maintaining and adding value to a trusted body of digital information for both current and future use.  It is active management and appraisal of digital information over its entire life cycle.

Good data management is a fundamental aspect of the research process and as such already forms part of UEA's Guidance for Good Practice in Research.

To complement this guidance, the University has developed a policy on Research Data Management.

This is supplemented by a detailed RDM Procedures Guidance document which focuses on the practical aspects of implementing the policy.
