As academia in general, and research funders in particular, place ever greater importance on data as an output of
research, so the value of good research data management practices becomes ever more apparent. In response to this,
the Innovative Design and Manufacturing Research Centre (IdMRC) at the University of Bath, UK, with funding from the
JISC, ran a project to draw up a data management planning regime. In carrying out this task, the ERIM (Engineering
Research Information Management) Project devised a visual method of mapping out the data records produced in the
course of research, along with the associations between them. This method, called Research Activity Information
Development (RAID) Modelling, is based on the Unified Modelling Language (UML) for portability. It is offered to the wider
research community as an intuitive way for researchers both to keep track of their own data and to communicate this
understanding to others who may wish to validate the findings or re-use the data.
