Watch this video for a quick introduction on why learning how to manage your Research Data is important.
Research data management refers to all aspects of creating, housing, delivering, maintaining, archiving and preserving research data. It is one of the essential areas of responsible conduct of research.
For more information on what you can do to manage your research data and how to create your own Data Management Plan, check out out Research Data Management LibGuide.
It is highly encouraged to create an ORCID to avoid author ambiguity in your research.
At the moment, NTU is requesting NTU faculty members to authorize NTU to collect and use their ORCID iD and their ORCID record data for NTU research systems.
For more information on ORCID and how to create one, do check out the ORCID Libguide.
