Managing your research data
The purpose of research data management is to maximise the academic value of research data by ensuring that such data is managed according to good practices for collection, curation, storage, management, retrieval, re-use, sharing, archiving, and access, appropriate for the data and discipline concerned, and thereby to ensure compliance with the requirements of funding agencies and other stakeholders.
The aim of the Research Data Management Policy at University of Galway is to advise University of Galway staff engaged in Research on their responsibilities with regard to data collected/stored as part of a research project which University of Galway staff/students are engaged in, and the supports that are available for same, and to ensure that research data is managed in line with Data Protection Regulations. The policy covers all research related data generated, collected and processed by University of Galway staff as part of a project, which is led or contributed to by University of Galway staff/students.
For further information, guidance and support please consult the Library Guide on Research Data Management. It includes information about Data Management Plans, typical data-related activities undertaken in the research data lifecycle as well as how to find and cite data.
