About Research Data Management - what's involved?

Good stewardship of research data is a key requirement for the responsible conduct of research. Adequate management of research data is also a legislative and funding body requirement, including an obligation under the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (the Code). Good stewardship involves:

  • planning how data will be created, stored, used and protected from loss, damage or theft
  • describing data so it can potentially be re-used by others
  • documenting compliance with the relevant policies, legislation and funding body requirements

This course will take you through your responsibilities and explain the advice, tools and services available to help you and UQ meet our requirements under the Code, funding agreements and legislation.
