Research Data Management at Lakehead University

Services and tools available to researchers for managing data


Research data management (RDM) is the effective storage, access, and preservation of research data that is often required by funding agencies. It involves planning, file naming and formatting, following metadata standards, data storage, and legal and ethical considerations. RDM is essential in continuing the data lifecycle because it enables individuals to access and reuse the data sets created by other researchers.
