Research Data Management for Health Sciences

Why manage and share your data?

To increase productivity and your research presence

  • Increase your research impact. Making your data available to other researchers can impact discovery and relevance of your research.

  • Save time. Planning ahead for your data management needs will save you time and resources.

To effectively care for your data

  • Preserve your data. Depositing your data in a repository safeguards your investment of time and resources while preserving your research contribution for you and others to use.

  • Maintain data integrity. Managing and documenting your data throughout its life cycle will allow you and others to understand and use your data in the future.

To maintain your funding 

  • Meet grant requirements. Many funding agencies now require that researchers deposit data collected as part of a research project.

To contribute to science

  • Promote new discoveries. Sharing your data with other researchers can lead to new and unanticipated discoveries and provide research material for those with little or no funding.

  • Support open access. Be a catalyst for research and discovery. Show your support for open access by sharing your data.
