Postgraduate researchers are expected to manage their research data to the highest standards and wherever possible to publish the data in BORDaR (BU's research data repository). This will then be linked to thesis' deposited in BURO (BU's publications repository). For an introduction to what research data management is, see the links above. For guidance, follow the links at the bottom of the page.
It's recommended that all PGRs attend the library's workshop 'Research Data Management: An Introduction', offered as part of the Doctoral College's Research Development Programme. Go to the Doctoral College: Researcher Development Programme area in Brightspace to find out more and book yourself a slot. This is open to all PGRs, whether you're just starting or you've been here a while.
