Support for research data at Yale is a collaboration between units across the university including Yale University Library, Yale Center for Research Computing, Information Technology Services and the Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning.  Staff work with researchers at each stage of the data life cycle — whether you need to locate others’ data; use your own data; find a way to manage, store, and describe that data; analyze the data; or preserve and share it for future researchers.

Create a data management plan

Yale researchers may use the Data Management Planning Tool (DMPtool) to create, review, and share data management plans that are in accordance with institutional and funder requirements.

Find a research data repository

The Registry of Research Data Repositories provides a fast and easy way to determine if your data is appropriate for a repository.

Learn about research data management at your own pace

If you want basic education on research data management but do not have the time for a workshop or consultation, on-demand data management best practices tutorials can be found online.

The Yale University Library maintains research data management guides filled with tools, resources, and helpful URLs for learning about specific aspects of RDM, including funding mandates, discipline-specific metadata standards, and how to write a data management plan. 

Many others come out of the United Kingdom and Europe, which have different funding contexts from the United States:
