Research data refers to anything that is required to validate or reproduce research findings, or to get a better understanding of them.

Whether you are an undergraduate, graduate, or an academic working on a research project, managing your data well is one of the best ways ensure standardisation, reproducibility, and the ability to disseminate your research; along with saving you time in the long run. Without proper data management, the validity of research results might be doubted, jeopardising your reputation, as well as the reputation of the college.
