Research Data Management

Research data management activities include how data is collected, organised, stored, backed-up, preserved, shared, archived and disposed.

Good research data management practices enable data generated in research projects to be preserved and accessed for both current and future use.

See UOW research data storage and research data management pages to learn more about options for storing and managing your research data at UOW.

Research data training is available to all UOW HDR students and researchers through Moodle. It is recommended that HDR and Honours students, as well as researchers new to UOW, complete this training so that they are up to date with research data management at UOW. 

ReDBox: data management planning tool

ReDBox (Research Data Box) is a tool to help UOW researchers manage their research data.

When starting a research project, it’s important to plan how your research data will be managed and decide who will access it, where it will be stored and for how long.

With ReDBox, you can record your project details in one place for your team to access and create a Research Data Management Plan to use in ethics applications and for funder requirements, saving you time.

Once your Research Data Management Plan is created, you can request for your data to be stored in one of the recommended storage options aligned with UOW's Research Data Management Policy.

NOTE: if accessing ReDBox off-campus, you will need to be connected to UOW's remote network (VPN).

For further support, check out the ReDBox Getting Started Guide and FAQs or email
