Research Data Management (RDM): Welcome

RDM Survey

Mount Allison RDM Survey

The goal of this survey is to get a sense of the data management practices researchers on campus are currently using, to identify attitudes and preferences about data sharing, and to assess the training offerings needed. Data are collected via LimeSurvey, as secure platform and stored on the Mount Allison University servers.

What is Research Data Management?

"Research data management (RDM) refers to the processes applied through the lifecycle of a research project to guide the collection, documentation, storage, sharing and preservation of research data."

-Tri-Agency Research Data Management Policy - Frequently Asked Questions

The Tri-Agency Research Data Management (RDM) Policy was created by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Council of Canada (NSERC), and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).

Institutions that administer CIHR, NSERC, or SSHRC funds must have an institutional RDM strategy that outlines RDM support for researchers. Mount Allison's Research Data Management Institutional Strategy is under development and will be published by March 1, 2023.
