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.

Using UQRDM cloud

The UQRDM cloud web interface can be accessed by approved UQ and external collaborators, linked to a UQRDM project. 

To access the web interface, enter this address: using any of the following web browsers: 

- Mozilla Firefox (14+) 

- Google Chrome/Chromium (18+) 

- Safari (7+) 

- Internet Explorer (11+) 

- Microsoft Edge 

Note: There may be up to a 2 hour delay for external collaborators to access their allocation folder via the cloud. If your external collaborators experience a delay longer than this, please contact ITS Support .

External collaborators should login using the same authentication method that you joined the project with.

When logging in for the first time you will see a pop up prompting you to download the sync client application. To get rid of this message - press the "escape" button or click outside the pop up. 

Once logged in, your allocation folders will be available in the same format (6-10 character short code followed by a 5 character storage code, e.g. RDMUQ2017-I0001). 

You can access your files within these allocation folders and use the web interface to create, preview, edit, and delete files.

Within the UQRDM cloud web interface, there is the option to share folders and files with partners that are not listed as "collaborators" on the record. There is also the ability to control access permissions (e.g. read-only access) using this sharing functionality. 

See more information on how to use this functionality on the sharing by email or link using UQRDM cloud page. 

There is also a sync client that can be used in conjunction with UQRDM cloud. 

See more information about the UQRDM cloud sync client.
