Research data management overview

In recent years, there’s been a global drive towards open science, the public sharing of research data and good data management practice. This series of pages, accessible via the drop-down menu (Support for Researchers > Research Data Management (RDM) > ...), explains what this means in practice for academic staff/researchers/doctoral students at Portsmouth. 

While reading these pages, it's worth keeping in mind the important distinction between the 2 stages of research data (diagram below). 

If you need a very brief (one page!) summary see our one page Research Data Management Checklist and if you have any RDM queries please contact
