Research Data Management at Flinders
Management of research data involves considerations of ownership, storage, security, confidentiality, access, retention, disposal, and who has responsibility for these activities. 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.
You can create a data management plan to support a new funding application, at the beginning of a project, or to formalise procedures once a project is underway.
The process includes bringing together information about:
- the project that will generate or collect the data
- people involved in the project
- requirements related to the data (size, file type, access, security, retention)
- sensitivities related to the data (ethics, commercial, cultural)
- ownership, licensing and intellectual property
