Data Management for Research

Data Management Happens at all Stages of your Project!


Research Data Lifecycle, from designing a project to archiving and reusing dataData management should happen at all stages of your research project! From the beginning stages of designing and planning your research, to collecting and analyzing your data, to publishing and archiving your data, and even when reusing your data! The sooner you start to think about data management in your project, the better - but, we understand why it might not be the most exciting thing to spend time on. We at CMU Libraries are here to help you develop good data management practices so you can spend more time on the fun parts of your research, such as collecting data and creating visualizations!
