Research Products:

Research products are the data generated by a research project. The types of questions you will likely be asked will address include:

  • a description of the data to be managed
  • summary of research and data
  • explanations of the types of data and formats you will be generating
  • possibly an explanation of the tools used in collecting and generating data
