This guide presents best practices in research data management (RDM), with the purpose of promoting archiving research data in a repository and make it available to all. A growing number of stakeholders in the research community (see the Publishers and Granting Agencies tab) encourage and sometimes require research data management and sharing.
"RDM refers to the processes applied throughout the lifecycle of a research project to guide the collection, documentation, storage, sharing, and preservation of research data." (Portage Network)
Here are the steps of RDM presented in this guide, with the aim that research data is eventually shared:
1. Choose at least one repository to upload the data;
2. a) Obtain an ORCID iD
● To promote one's research and increase its impact and visibility;
● To comply with journal publishers' and granting agencies' policies;
● To support data reuse in the scientific community for research and innovation;
● To allow reproducibility and verification of one's findings and conclusions.
