Good data management is essential for ensuring the validity and quality of data in all types of clinical research and is an essential precursor for data sharing. The Data Management Portal has been developed to provide support to researchers to ensure that high-quality data management is fully considered, and planned for, from the outset and throughout the life of a research project.
The steps below will help you identify the areas you need to consider when developing your Data Management Plan, with a particular focus on data management systems and how to organise and structure your data. Learn best practices for data capture, entry, processing and monitoring and how to prepare your data for analysis, sharing and archiving.
We have also collated an extensive collection of resources linked to data management which can be searched and filtered depending on their type. Are you looking for a guide or want to watch a few short videos? Or maybe you are interested in learning materials? Click on 'Resources' to explore.
