Research Data Management at LSE

This website provides information and guidance for researchers on Research Data Management (RDM) drawing on external and internal support and polices. It will also provide a contact point for questions on how to manage research data. LSE Library offers a range of services to assist LSE colleagues with RDM at all stages of the research lifecycle, including:

  • How to manage your research data, from the planning stage to finishing a research project.
  • What LSE and the research funding councils expect you to do with your research data.
  • How to find and describe data for re-use in your research.
  • How to preserve and share your data through a suitable data archive or repository and how to apply appropriate usage licenses to data.

If any aspect of RDM is not covered in these pages, please contact us at datalibrary@lse.ac.uk.
