Support for researchers in the Life Sciences


Research Life Cycle

Research is a series of steps that are generally followed from conception to completion. The process is not necessarily linear, nor are the steps independent of one another as is often depicted in a lifecycle diagram. For best results, plan for data management right from the start with project design, and continue to revise and improve your plan throughout the entire data lifecycle.

Researchers in the life sciences may find the data management resources collected here of use for exploring solutions that have worked for others, identifying learning opportunities, and building community.
