Data Management Planning

Data management is an integral part of the research process. Before starting a new study, researchers should make explicit plans for managing their data. This planning will:

  • Meet federal funding agency requirements
  • Ensure that research data and records are accurate, complete, and reliable
  • Increase research efficiency and prevent duplication of effort
  • Enhance data security and minimize risk of data loss
