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.

When and how can a record be updated?

 A UQRDM record can be updated at any time throughout the project, by the record owner or the lead. Other UQ collaborators have read-only access to the record, and external collaborators do not have access. 

Once storage has been provisioned and the record is "active", additional fields will appear within the record. While it is not compulsory to complete these fields, they can aid HDR students and researchers in managing their research data across the research lifecycle (from project conception to publication and dissemination of results). 

 Note: all UQ collaborators on the record will have access to view provenance (record history) information - this includes every change that is made to the record (e.g. when a collaborator is removed or added). For security purposes, owners and leads are immediately sent email notifications when a new collaborator joins a project record. Owners and leads are also sent a weekly email containing provenance changes for all projects on which they are owners or leads. If no changes were made to the project record, no email will be sent.  See FAQ for more information.

Updating an active record

The following images show where and how you can access and update information in your active project record.  Check each question option to see where to:

  • find the storage access instructions
  • change the digital research notebook setting
  • add or remove a collaborator
  • change the owner or the lead
  • publish dataset in UQ eSpace
  • update project information

 Note: only the owner or the lead can make these changes.
