This course will introduce participants to the theory and principles of best practice research data management.  

Good stewardship of research data is a key requirement for the responsible conduct of research. Adequate management of research data is also a legislative and funding body requirement, including an obligation under the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (The Code).

Good stewardship involves planning how data will be created, stored, used, protected from loss, damage or theft, and shared or published after the research project finishes, documenting compliance with the relevant policies, legislation and funding body requirements.

This course will guide you through your responsibilities and explain research data management best practice, tools and services available to help you and UQ meet our requirements under The Code, funding agreements and legislation.

This course will:

  1. Raise your awareness of what is required for good stewardship of research data.
  2. Present strategies for managing research data and making it available wherever possible.
  3. Raise awareness of tools and services available to help manage the stewardship process, including the use of UQ Research Data Manager.
