The Research Data Oxford website is the University of Oxford’s central source of information and guidance about research data management – also known as RDM.
The website has recently been re-vamped. The plan is to continue developing the site over the next few months, so if there are additional topics you would like to see covered, or if you have any other feedback, please contact email@example.com
Research data management is an umbrella term, covering a range of data-related activities during the whole research project life cycle, from before it starts to after the project concludes.
- Data management planning
- Good practice in collecting and working with data during the live phase of the project
- Compliance with legal and ethical requirements relating to research data
- What happens to the data after the project is complete: preservation or disposal, and data sharing where appropriate
Good research data management is an essential part of good research. It has two key goals:
- Smoothing the progress of the research process, by ensuring data is kept safe and that it’s possible to make the best use of it
- Extending the life of data beyond the project, by ensuring it remains useful and accessible
Each section of the website deals with a key aspect of research data management. If you’re new to the topic, a good place to start is this section of the website.

To coincide with the annual International Love Data Week the Sustainable Digital Scholarship (SDS) service, along with many other Research Data Management (RDM) support colleagues and services, will be on hand for anyone wanting to learn more about how the University provides love and care for its valuable data collections.
This event will provide a valuable opportunity for Academic Researchers, Students, IT and Research Support teams, and any other interested parties, to be introduced to colleagues from the Bodleian Libraries, IT Services and Academic Divisions, who are responsible for delivering the various Research Data Management services and platforms used at Oxford.
Doors will open at 2pm, and from 3pm a series of speed presentations will commence, with each service providing a quick overview of their offering for any potential suitors (you!) in need of data management support. Full list of presenters below:
