Research Data Management

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

DOIs make Data Findable & Citable 

A Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is a persistent identifier.

Minting a DOI for your dataset ensures your dataset will be persistently findable and accessible, no matter where the "digital object" URL, e.g. dataset, is located on the web.

Why get a DOI for your dataset?

Datasets with DOIs enable consistent and correct citation by others which ensures the impact of your research is measured.




DOI minting for published Research Data Portal (RDP) datasets

  • Open published datasets - DataCite DOI is automatically minted when a open dataset is published
  • Mediated published datasets - DataCite DOI is automatically minted when a mediated dataset is published

Criteria for minting DOIs at UTAS

Your dataset needs to be:

  • Affiliated - to the University of Tasmania 
  • Accessible -  openly available in the Research Data Portal or IMAS Portal, or securely stored with access via mediation 
  • Discoverable - metadata deposited in the Research Data Portal or IMAS Portal
  • Persistent - permanently stored in the Research Data Portal or another University managed system
  • Immutable - dataset or data collection will remain unchanged 
  • Unique - dataset has not previously been assigned a DOI
  • Citable - contributes to the scholarly record and is related to a journal article
