Data management overview


Research data management which results in trusted, reusable, interoperable, findable and accessible data is a joint responsibility between researchers and institutions.

Key steps in reseach data management

For researchers

ANDS helps researchers to organise and manage their research data, promote and share it with other researchers, and locate other research data in Research Data Australia

For institutions

ANDS Guide to Research Data Management in Practice (PDF, 0.74 MB), prepared by Mercury Project Solutions, outlines the roles and responsibilities of hosting institutions and individual researchers with respect to data management.

The information below sets out fundamental elements that institutions will need to consider in formulating their data management framework and strategies.

Bringing it all together

A one-stop-shop set of web pages for research support staff and researchers can help tie it all together and present a logical step by step process. By presenting the information in this way people can easily find what they need as well as be made aware of all the other steps they need to do.

How the components of research data management are organised will vary between institutions but they may include such things as human contacts, activities and events, online tools and online information.
