Data Management

Data Management

As science has become more data-intensive and collaborative, research data management is consuming more of researchers' most precious resource: time. In the era of "big data", decisions regarding data are more complex and fraught with larger consequences. See, for instance, the debate about reproductibility in computational science; funding agencies’ mandates to make public data accumulated with taxpayers' dollars; or the challenges of staff turn-over for efficient and effective data management.
