Research Data Management (RDM) is the organization, description, storage, preservation, and sharing of data collected and used during the course of a research cycle or the lifetime of a research project. RDM is an integral part of the research process and helps to ensure that your data is cared for and maintained.
The Research Data LifeCycle
The lifecycle of research data lasts beyond the length of a research project.
Using the RDM Guide
As part of the Division of the Chief Information Officer (DotCIO), Library Information Services (LIS) offers this guide as a service for assisting faculty and researchers with the RDM process at RPI.
