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.

Can I change the UQ lead or owner on a record? How?

Only the record owner or UQ lead has the authority to make this change. See how to change the record owner or UQ lead.

Can I login to UQRDM using both my staff and student logins?

Yes you can.  If you create the project record using your student account, then you need to add your staff account as a collaborator on the project record.  If you create the project record using your staff account, then you need to add your student account as a collaborator on the project record.

How can I change the Owner from my staff account to my student account?

You need to add your student account as a collaborator first.  Once you click the link in the email sent by the UQRDM system and join the project as a collaborator, you can make your student account as the Owner by clicking the three vertical dots and selecting "Make Owner".  See how to change the record owner or UQ lead.

How do I remove collaborators?

Only the record owner or UQ lead has the authority to remove collaborators. See instructions on how to remove collaborators.

How do I add new collaborators?

Only the record owner or UQ lead has the authority to add new collaborators. See how to add collaborators.

How do I add more information to my record?

Once a record is "active" you will see a different version of the form (with additional fields). This different version is available upon opening up any "active" record. While the additional fields are not mandatory, we strongly encourage the owner/lead to update this information throughout the project. The owner/lead can choose to fill in as much information as they want and can come back and add or remove information at any time, as referred to on our create a data management plan page.

This additional information can be easily exported to a PDF document as a data management plan. Find out how to export a data management plan.

Deleting a project record from UQRDM

You can delete a UQRDM project record where no storage has been provisioned. Usually this means the record is incomplete, or has not been approved (pending approval) by the UQ Lead.

  1. Go to UQRDM dashboard.
  2. Open the incomplete or pending approval record. Only Project Owners and Project Leads can delete records.

3. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Remove Record

The record will be removed from UQRDM, and will not be found in either your R:/ drive or via the cloud interface.


If you wish to remove an active record with data stored, take the following steps.

1. Confirm that you are authorised to delete the record. Check with either your HDR Supervisor or Project Lead.

2. Move any remaining files, documents or data out of the project storage allocation and save to another appropriate location.

3. Contact ITS Help (help@its.uq.edu.au) to request your UQRDM project record be deleted. Include the project short-code or ID and reason for deleting.

4. Your storage will be removed. Anything still stored there will be deleted. The remaining, unwanted UQRDM project record will be deleted.
