Research data is valuable - to you, the University of Tasmania, other researchers, funder organisations and the Australian community. The Australian F.A.I.R. Policy Statement commits to making all Australian publicly funded research F.A.I.R (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) by 2020.
How F.A.I.R is your data? Test your data's FAIRness using the ANDS-Nectar-RDS FAIR data self-assessment tool
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!
UTAS researchers have the following options regarding data storage, data management plans and sharing data descriptions:
|Academic staff||HDR candidates|

|Data Management Plan (DMP)||Login to RDMP, create a Project to create a DMP||Download the Library's DMP template|

You may have to follow more than one data policy, depending on: where you work, the type of data you are collecting, where you plan to publish, and who you are funded by.
