The importance of credible research data in conducting empirical studies in banking and finance is well established. Finance scholars face the challenge of finding and using reliable and credible data to provide empirical evidence to support investment and financial decision-making and to meet expectations for evidence-based finance practice. This paper discusses some of the benefits of establishing and operating specialised research-data centre for collection and storage of banking and finance data in Nigerian universities. The paper also emphasises the establishment of research centres with specialisation in specific areas in banking and/or finance as well as discusses the basic stages in establishing such centres.
