Research Data Management in a Developing Country: A Personal Journey
AbstractThis paper explores our own journey to get to grips with research data management (RDM). It also mentions the overlap between our own ‘journeys’ and that of the country. We share the lessons that we learnt along the way – the most important lesson being that you can learn many wonderful and valuable RDM lessons from the international trend setters, but in the end you need to get your hands dirty and get the work done yourself. You must, within the set parameters, implement the RDM practice that is both appropriate and acceptable for and to your own set of researchers – who may be conducting research in a context that may be very dissimilar to that of international peers.
