Research Data Management

Research Data Management

***4 May 2017 – DMP Online have changed the way it handles logging in.  We don’t think it will cause any problems, but please contact us immediately if you have difficulty ***

Research Data Management services are under development to ensure compliance with institutional and funders’ policies (such as these), and to facilitate easier and better planning, saving and sharing of research data.

Researchers are encouraged to make a Data Management Plan with DMP Online and share it with their co-investigators, staff supporting their bid and the Research Information team.

Research data should be deposited as type dataset in the Institutional Repository at eprints.lincoln.ac.uk.  Data that is placed there will be indexed automatically in the UK Research Data Discovery Service (UKRDDS) at  http://ckan.data.alpha.jisc.ac.uk/dataset

We have a number of external links that may be useful, but please bear in mind that the University of Lincoln doesn’t control this content
