UQ Research Data Manager (UQRDM)


UQ is pioneering and adopting the highest standards of excellence in research data management. The UQRDM is a robust, world-leading system designed and developed here at UQ. It provides, for the first time, the means for all UQ researchers to ensure their research data is managed in line with best practice.

The UQRDM provides the UQ research community with a collaborative, safe and secure large-scale storage facility to practice good stewardship of research data. The UQRDM facilitates collaboration across the whole of UQ, with other research institutions and industry partners.

The benefits of UQRDM

UQRDM will bring to UQ an integrated data management system covering the entire research data lifecycle including, seamless provisioning of easily accessible, secure and sharable data storage in real-time from one location. UQRDM also enables publication records to be linked to datasets and provides a mechanism for the storage and retrieval of archived data.

UQRDM will ensure that research data:

  • remains accurate, authentic, reliable, and complete,
  • retains integrity and research results may be replicated,
  • security is enhanced, minimising the risk of data loss,
  • re-use is enabled by collecting critical metadata early,
  • is available in accordance with the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research and the FAIR guiding principles, and
  • meets funding, journal and regulatory body requirements.
