Data Management and Data Sharing
** This page is being updated. For detailed information on data management, please go to our NEW Research Data Management Guide. **
Research funding agencies, scholarly journals, governments worldwide, and the general public now expect greater access to, and sharing of, research data, especially data generated or collected with the support of public funds.
The Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research stresses the importance of good stewardship of data, not least because well-managed data is easier to share. Managing data effectively has thus become an important part of researchers' responsibilities.
Download our Checklist - Research Data Management Plan to help create your own plan.
Download our Data Management Plan Template to record your own plan.
Download our Data Assets Inventory template to create a registry of the datasets in your organisational unit.
(Note: UQ's data management policy has not yet been finalised but our checklist and template are designed to help you comply with the Code's requirements.)
We are very keen to extend and improve our current research support and data management services. Please tell us what you need by filling in our data management questionnaire.
