Oxford Research Data Management Pages

The University of Oxford has launched the Research Data Management Website. This thematic site has been developed by Research Services in collaboration with OUCS and OULS as part of the EIDCSR Project.

The RDM website is designed to support researchers with their research data management activities and includes information about:

  • research funder requirements in the area of research data management
  • services available within the University to assist researchers in this area
  • guidance on how to produce a data management plan as part of a funding application
  • further sources of advice and online guidance, updates and news, and tools and training available to help.

Previously, web-based information about research data management was available from a number of sites across the University but it was felt that a single source of `signposting’ information would be a valuable resource for researchers from all subject disciplines at differing stages of the research cycle, increasing understanding of the benefits of improved research data management, as well as communicating the range of services available.
