Research Data Management policy


31 January 2014

The University has a new Research Data Management Policy. The University is working on initiatives to help researchers comply with the new policy and manage their research data, including:

  • Electronic Lab Notebooks (ELN): the University is working to implement a University-wide ELN service. A pilot will run from March-May 2014. Researchers: register your interest in the ELN pilot.
  • Research Data Storage: the University has central Research Data Store (RDS). Researchers are encouraged to apply for space on the RDS.
  • Research Data Management Guidelines: The Research Data Management Guidelines website provides information for researchers, research students and support staff.
The Research Data Management policy sets out the responsibilities of the University, Faculty representatives and individual researchers with regard to the management, storage, retention and ownership of and access to research data. The new policy also assists researchers and the University in meeting new ARC funding requirements, the requirements of the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research and the University's Research Code of Conduct(PDF).
