The purpose of these guidelines is to serve as an information resource to life science researchers in Sweden regarding research data management.

Research Data Management

Research Data Management (RDM) concerns the organisation, storage, preservation, and sharing of data that is collected and analysed during a research project. Proper planning and management of research data will make project management easier and more efficient while projects are being performed. It also facilitates sharing and allows others to validate as well as reuse the data.

Research data life cycle

The research data life cycle can be divided into several phases as seen in the wheel below; plan, collect, process, analyse, perserve, share and reuse. Click on a section of the wheel below to get an introduction to that phase of the research data life cycle, including information on relevant resources and training material.
