There is a need to design and adopt policies on the management of research data, to ensure that valuable data are not lost. Such a policy also provides a basis to answer allegations of research misconduct or questions about the results obtained. It also assists in the protection of intellectual property and assures auditors and industry that robust academic supervision is in place. Correct data handling can also allow limited access to others for certain datasets (e.g. in large cohort studies).
The policy applies to all NUS faculty members, staff, students and any other persons at the University engaged in research, regardless of the source of funding for the project.
