Miksi suunnitella tutkimusaineistojen ja -datan hallintaa etukäteen?

Mikään aineistonhallinnan osa-alue ei ole merkityksetön, ja jokaista on tarpeen tarkastella ja suunnitella hyvissä ajoin etukäteen. Huonoon suunnitteluun liittyy riskejä, jotka voivat aiheuttaa ongelmia tutkimusprojektin kannalta. Tunne datasi- artikkelisarjan neljäs osa pureutuu siihen, miksi datanhallinan suunnittelu on niin tärkeää.
