University data safeguards
The University has several policies, codes of practice and protocols that are key to the safe processing and preparation of your research data.
Make sure you're familiar with the following University policies and know how they affect your research. Please contact the Research Data Leeds service if you need help.
Your data management plan should set out how you will comply with these University safeguards, as well as any other data sharing agreement entered into with a third party.
