Research Data Management helps researchers navigate the increasingly complex landscape of data planning, storage, and sharing. This guide can be used to learn about best practices, tools, and services related to research data across disciplines. If you need assistance, contact RDM Consulting at researchdata@berkeley.edu.

The Securing Research Data working group, run by Jon Stiles of the D-Lab and Rick Jaffe of Research IT, provides a forum for researchers and staff to discuss issues concerning sensitive, confidential, and restricted-use data.

Love Data Week logo Workshops & demos for researchers: Reproducibility, Security, HPC, and Cloud. Feb 11-14 is Love Data Week!

Please join us for a series of events on February 11th-15th during Love Data Week

This nationwide campaign is designed to raise awareness about data management, security, sharing, and preservation. Students, researchers, librarians and data specialists are invited to attend these events to gain hands on experience, learn about resources, and engage in discussion around data needs throughout the research process.

Improving campus services for working with sensitive data

Increasingly, researchers in a wide range of fields at UC Berkeley are applying novel data science approaches to very large sensitive and restricted data sets. Working closely with Berkeley Research Computing (BRC), the Research Data Management (RDM) Program has been helping dozens of faculty, students, and postdocs working with sensitive data by providing consulting expertise in a number of disciplines, including the biological sciences, public health, social welfare, demography, computer science, and more. The combined approach of providing data management and computation support helps researchers integrate data management and curation best practices into their larger research workflows while protecting their data. 

UC Berkeley's Research Data Management program and our partners provide consulting, training, and documentation around each of these areas. Read more below, or email researchdata@berkeley.edu to set up a consultation.
