Benefits of Research Data Management

Good data management will help you save time and increase the impact of your research. During a project, there are steps you can take to make your data:

  • easier to use and interpret
  • accessible now and in the future
  • publishable and reusable
  • compliant with funder and journal policies.

The Taubman Library provides services and expertise to help students, researchers, and faculty finddescribe, organize, analyze, store, and share the data you produce at any point in the research data lifecycle.
