We offer support to all researchers and doctoral students:
We have an online GW4 Research Data Management Triage Tool that you can use interactively to find out answers to frequently asked questions. You will need a University of Bath login to access the tool.
We also have a Research Data Management Adventure game, which is a self-paced text adventure to help you learn how to better manage your data throughout a research project.
