Supporting your research data needs
Knowledge Enterprise, the ASU Library, and other departments across the university can provide data science and data management support for your research. These units are able to provide expertise in these areas:
- Data Management Plan support – we have data managers who understand what funding agencies expect to see in data management plans. They also know the services you can include in your proposal to reassure the funding agency that your data will be managed effectively and made available when the grant finishes.
- Technology Needs Assessments (TNA) – if you have a complex, collaborative project, you may need to use lots of different technologies. A Knowledge Enterprise research data manager can advise you on the systems, tools, and skills available to help support your research activities.
- Resilient project storage – secure storage that you can dedicate to storing your research data. This is particularly useful if you expect to create or collect large amounts of data during the life of your grant.
- Research information management tools and consulting services – we have a variety of tools and technologies that will help you manage your data and document your research.
- Statistical data analysis services – we have data scientists on who can advise on the myriad of statistical analysis techniques you might need to properly understand your data.
- Geospatial data services – units in the Library and the School of Geographical Science and Urban Planning can assist with the creation of geospatial visualizations and map applications.
- Scientific programming services – if you are using our research computing facilities, we have data scientists who can help with the programming needed to get the most out of this tremendous resource.
- Data publishing and preservation – the ASU Library has data publishing and curation experts willing and able to ehlp you publish your data, including providing a persistent identifier for citation purposes.
