Research Data Management
Research Data Management addresses the organization, capture, storage, preservation, and sharing of research data created during a research project.
It comprises researcher's strategies for caring for their data and decisions concerning what to do with the data upon completion of a project. This results in depositing data in a data repository for long-term access and archiving.
