Ten Reasons to Manage, Preserve, and Share Your Research Data

This list was compiled by Lizzy Rolando (Research Data Librarian at Georgia Tech) and Jennifer Doty (Data Management Specialist at Emory University).

Welcome to the Data Management Guide

This Data Management Guide is provided as a service to the faculty and students at the Florida State University. It is a one-stop-shop for all things related to Research Data Management. Data Management is an important part of the research project for reasons such as:

1. Funding agencies, such as the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, and National Endowment for the Humanities require data management and sharing plans in all grant applications.

2.The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy released a directive (February 22, 2013) that all federal agencies are to make the results of federally funded research publicly available within one year of publication and to better manage data from federally funded research projects.

This site provides guidance on specific aspects of data management and provides information on data management best practices.
