This guide will assist you to manage and maximise the value of your research data throughout the research data lifecycle, from planning to publishing and everything in-between!

Welcome to Your Guide to Getting Data Wise!

This guide will assist you to manage and maximise the value of your research data throughout the research data lifecycle, from planning to publishing and everything in-between!

Why Do I Need to Get Data Wise?

Research data is valuable - to you, the University of Tasmania, other researchers, funder organisations and the Australian community.

Managing your research data enables compliance, preservation, discovery, access and re-use.

You can publish, share and get credit for even the most sensitive data if you plan it from the start!  

UTAS researchers should deposit their, dataset or data collection, metadata in VIVO, the University's Research Data Discovery Portal. Search VIVO to find datasets or collections in your field.
