Learning to manage your research materials and data forms a very important part of your research experience. Good research data management (RDM) empowers you, protects you from disaster, and facilitates your collaborative exchanges with peers and advisors.
As part of University Policy, researchers at the post-graduate level (research Masters and PhD candidates) are required to be listed on a Research Data Management Plan (RDMP) in the University’s Researcher Dashboard (DashR).
While you don’t need to complete your own plan if you are already listed on your supervisor’s project, you are required to understand the importance of good RDM and be aware of the various tools and resources that the University provides to assist you.
We have created a series of short online lessons to help you reflect on aspects of your RDM. Completion of these lessons is a requirement for your candidature.
