So… you want to do research?
STOP… THINK… What about the data that is going to form the basis of your research?
Think through the following first and create a draft data managment plan. As your research develops you can modify and update this.
An excellent article written by a previous colleague of mine from the University of Strathclyde.
Whilst this refers to PURE as the CRIS (Current Research Information System), the principals are the same, if you are at the University of Northampton, think NECTAR where it mentions PURE…(NECTAR is our repository, we don’t have a CRIS).
