Research Data Management

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

Why Store Data?

Successful data storage and preservation ensures security, policy compliance, as well as enabling your data to be found and re-used. It involves:

  • Storing and backing-up data in secure repositories, with complete and accurate metadata
  • Routinely checking data is still usable and is unchanged
  • Including copies of software (or emulators) required to access and use your data, or migrate data to up-to-date formats 

University of Tasmania Data Storage Options

About

A dedicated, University of Tasmania research data repository to securely store your datasets and make your data publicly available, through the Research Data Australia search portal. If publishing your datasets is not possible (e.g. for privacy or confidentiality reasons) you can still use Research Data Portal (RDP) to archive them in a secure location.  

Use the RDP Data Management Plan tool to: build & store a Data Management Plan, request data storage, or provision your own and invite collaborators to access live datasets.  Print the DMP as a PDF to attach to grant applications or share.

Who can use it?

  • University staff
  • HDR candidates
