Best Practice Data Guidelines for Researchers

As a researcher, you are responsible for efficiently and responsibly carrying out your research and for communicating the results of research effectively. Good data management can save you time and give you peace of mind that your data is not at risk. If you are not subject to commercial or ethical restrictions, you can also increase your research profile by including data outputs as part of your dissemination strategy.
