Effective RDM helps you:
Research Services staff in the Brynmor Jones Library provide support for researchers developing Data Management Plans and evaluating options for data preservation: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The creation, management, dissemination and use/re-use of research data can be key to the outcome and impact of any research project.

RDM is not just for scientists! Research data comes in many forms.
