Research data management
Proper and effective management of research data is essential for the responsible conduct and reporting of research. Data must be retained and stored appropriately to enable the accuracy, veracity and basis of findings and methods to be established, scrutinised, tested and shared. Flinders Library provides support in creating Data Management Plans and making research data open access.
Data Management Plans
A Data Management Plan (DMP) documents how research data will be collected and managed, including its storage, privacy issues, dissemination and retention or disposal. A DMP is a living document that changes as the research project progresses and is often required by funding bodies.
Flinders researchers (including HDRs) can create a digital DMP through the Service One DMP Planning Tool, after first requesting access. Instructions on use are available in the DMP User Guide, in addition to materials on the Service One Orientation FLO page (scroll down to Data Management Plans section).
