Research Data Management

This guide will assist you to store and manage your research data throughout the research data lifecycle, from planning to publishing!

Fundamentals of Research Data Management


What is Research Data?

Any information or measurement collected, recorded and used during your research project (including hand-written notes, submitted questionnaires, spreadsheets, photos, videos, and interview transcripts and recordings).


What is Research Data Management?

This involves planning and taking steps throughout the Research Data Lifecycle to ensure that your research data is created, stored, and shared to comply with policies and to maximise impact. A Data Management Plan (DMP) sets out these steps and is a requirement of most research institutions and funding bodies.

University of Tasmania Ethics Review Management applications, require the articulation of your data management plan.
