Abstract

The chapter documents the proposed framework for the establishment of research data management services in research institutions in Zimbabwe. It has been indicated that there are no formal research data management services taking place in Zimbabwe as researchers are managing their own data. It is against such a background that a literature review was undertaken to understand how research institutions in other countries are engaging in research data services. E-mails were sent to the pioneers of research data services. It was discovered that there are challenges that are faced when establishing research data management services and it is important to consult all stakeholders at the planning stage. The framework consists of strategies, policies, guidelines, processes, technologies, and services.
