Research data are defined as factual records (numerical scores, textual records, images, and sounds) used as primary sources for scientific research, and that are commonly accepted in the scientific community as necessary to validate research findings.
Research data management extends over the whole data management lifecycle from data collection or creation through to storage/archiving and may continue long after the research project is completed as data is shared, reused and cited.
