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 publish and share your data?

Search the Publisher Data Availability Policies Index to check if a journal or publisher has a data availability policy.

Data sharing can enhance opportunities

  • Expanding the scope and scale of research
  • Research collaboration, both internationally and across disciplines.
  • Citation, recognition, and promotion (useful for future grant applications)


As Open as possible, as Closed as required

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

All researchers are encouraged to manage their data following the FAIR data principles and make their research data - as open as possible and only as closed as required.
