Research Data Sharing and Management Support

Diagram of the research data lifecycle

Research data is the recorded factual material commonly accepted in the scientific community as necessary to validate research findings. Research Data Management is the organization, management, publication and preservation of research products.

The ASU Library provides support for data management planning and sharing, open access and open data publishing, copyright and rights management which foster reproducible and responsible research as part of ASU's Research Data Management support structure.

This guide provides several resources (links located in the left-hand menu) including:

With data as with pizza, it’s considered good manners to share. Whereas pizza sharing is a private affair, data sharing is how good citizens of science give collaborators and strangers access to results generated mainly or entirely with public funds.

Suggested Readings

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
