Managing Research Data

Does your research involve data? How do you store and share it? Did you know that some funders now require a data management plan? Research data managment is currently a very topical area. There are a range of publications and websites which can help you get to grips with all aspects of data managment.
Mantra is a freely available online course which has been developed primarily for PhD students and early career researchers. Mantra provides guidelines for good practice in many aspects of research data management. It consists of a number of units including: research data explained, data management plans, organising data, storage and preservation.
You can link to Mantra from the Research data management webpages at: http://www.brookes.ac.uk/library/research/resdatamanagement.html
