Requirements for postgraduate students

When you begin your postgraduate research project, you are starting a research data lifecycle. The research data lifecycle begins with a data management plan (DMP) and, in most cases, ends with sharing the data in a repository or other setting. The DMP requirement and research data submission bookend your project and offer a framework for good data management.

To find out more about data and the research data lifecycle, read what are data or watch the UK Data Service's research data lifecycle video.

The Research Data Management team are here to support your journey from writing your DMP to sharing data underpinning theses. Click on either of the boxes below to learn more about requirements and support available at each stage. For any questions, contact us at
