Research data management planning

The aim of research data management is to produce excellent research data that answers the research questions and has enduring value. A data management plan (DMP) ensures that researchers create and collect data in a way that complies  with Oxford Brookes University and funders' policies.The information below provides advice on creating a plan to manage research data systematically. It outlines best practices that can be adopted to avoid potential problems. The DMP will guide the researcher through the steps of the research data life cycle, and will assist the researcher to appropriately plan to collect, analyse, publish, preserve and archive data.
