This guide aims to help students and faculty manage data throughout the data life cycle in accordance with journal and funder requirements. This includes the generation of a data management plan and the collection, preservation and sharing of data.
No matter where you are in the research process, questions may arise and we are here to help. We are available for individual consultations, lessons and workshops that suit your needs.
