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.

Reasons why you might create a data management plan

It may be useful for a researcher or HDR student to create and export a data management plan for a project grant or ethics application. While there are no formal requirements for researchers to complete data management plans for grant applications under the Australian Research Council (ARC) and the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), there are still requirements to indicate how research data will be managed and shared after the project. The UQRDM system allows a researcher to fill out this information, using the additional fields that are displayed once a record is active (data storage has been provisioned). A researcher can then export this information and paste it into a grant or ethics application where required. 

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

How to export a data management plan

Both the record owner and UQ lead can export the information contained within a UQRDM record into a data management plan. Go to the "my records" page and click on the "export PDF" symbol for the record that you wish to export. A separate page will open showing the PDF document.
