Research Data Network

Welcome to the Research Data Network. Jisc set up this site for you to exchange information on research data management and related topics within the UK research information management sector.

We have now produced a research data management toolkit

Go there to have your questions about RDM answered and leave us some feedback if you think part of the kit needs updating, or additional resources. You can find hot topics, links from the research data lifecycle and even access your local RDM pages from our toolkit:

We still want to collect a body of useful resources, help people share up to minute developments, practices and develop new ideas, but the toolkit will be the place to do that. This network site will be closed by end 2018. Most of the material has already been migrated into the toolkit, but our working group will review what's here before closure.

Also, if you are interested, you could get involved with our working group, just get in touch using the free text in the comment form:
