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, to address how research data will be managed during and shared after the project.
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 UQRDM system allows a researcher to fill out this information, using the additional fields that are displayed once a record is active ( ie data storage has been provisioned). A researcher can then export this information and paste it into a grant or ethics application where required.
Completing all the additional fields also gives you a central document to plan for, organise and manage all your research data consistently. This will save you time, improve efficiency and reduce the risk of data loss during the project.
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.
