UQ Research Data Manager

Provides information about how to use the UQ Research Data Manager (UQRDM) to store and manage research data for research projects.

Create a data management plan

UQ researchers and HDR students can create a data management plan on UQRDM project record for a grant or ethics application.  The UQRDM system has the capability to put together information provided by the project owner or the lead on the project record to produce such a plan to address how research data will be managed during and shared after the project.  It is highly recommended that the project owner and lead provide this planning information, using the additional fields that are displayed once a record is active.  



There is also a Research Data Management Plan Checklist to guide researchers through planning their data management process.

While there are no formal requirements for researchers that complete data management plans be submitted for assessment under the Australian Research Council (ARC) and the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), they are required to be in place prior to the commencement of the project. The National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research states researchers should develop a data management plan.

See more information on completing the data management section for ARC applications.

How to export a data management plan on UQRDM project record

Both the record owner and the lead can export the information contained within a UQRDM record into a data management plan. Open your active record, click on the "Export data management plan" for the record that you wish to export. A separate page will open showing the PDF document.
