A research data lifecycle describes the stages through which research data is collected, recorded, processed and results are published.
The management of research data will involve different combinations of researchers and support staff and activities during different stages of your research.

A lifecycle approach is helpful for effective data management as it encourages planning ahead, including awareness of pre-existing data and how your data will complement this. Thinking carefully about how data – and metadata – will be gathered, processed and preserved, and what type of consent you need to deposit your research data for reuse beyond your original project.
