Research Data Management in practice Guide

ANDS commissioned this "Research Data Management Practice Guide" as a practical starting point that focuses on the 'Why' and 'How' of good data management. A research data management plan is part of the research process and this guide aims to suggest the major roles and responsibilities of;

  • the individual researcher,
  • the hosting institution, and
  • those of a joint nature.

This Guide is aimed at research administrators in the e-research space, providing them with an overview for the planning and operations of sharing research data. No single person or even business unit is responsible for all aspects of research data management so a collaborative approach is required. In all cases this will involve the researcher / data creator.

Key steps a research institution needs to consider in research data management, before, during and after a research project.
