Research Data Management at LSE

This website provides information and guidance for researchers on Research Data Management (RDM).

LSE Library offers a service to assist with the management of research data at all stages of the research lifecycle, drawing on external and internal support and policies. This reflects LSE's recognition of research data as a valuable asset to be looked after and shared wherever possible. 

The service is here to help you:

  • Understand expectations of LSE, research funders, and academic journals in sharing research data. 
  • Manage research data from planning through to finishing a research project.
  • Describe data for use or re-use in your research.
  • Preserve and share data in a suitable data archive or repository with an appropriate re-use license. 

If the information you want is not covered in these pages, please contact us at datalibrary@lse.ac.uk.
