The Research Data Management Working Group (RDM WG) is charged with reviewing, recommending and implementing policies, services and infrastructure as they relate to supporting the research data lifecycle at Rowan University. The WG is a collaborative project between representatives from Rowan University Libraries, the Division of University Research, and the Information Resources and Technology. The goal of this group is to assist with creating and implementing data management plans, applying best practices for managing data, and finding data management services at any stage of the research process. 

The WG is in the process of synthesizing and providing easy access to existing research data management services and resources via in one easy-to-use portal. We will use this site to post updates about our work, as well as announcements about new services and resources that are able to highlight to make available to the Rowan community to assist in their research. In the meantime, if you have any questions/comments/suggestions for this group to consider, please email with your inquiry.
