Research data management (RDM)

Please begin by visiting the RDM Portal - a central repository of USQ's Research Data Management resources.

To assist researchers to develop data management strategies, USQ has a Data Management Plan template. This template will guide your planning by identifying the areas of data management that you need to consider and address, and provide tools and information to help you understand the requirement. The plan is in a narrative style to enable inclusion of data management strategies in grant applications. 

If you are unsure of what you need to do, or how to answer the questions on the Data Management Plan template, you can contact your Research Librarian, who will be able to guide you through the process and refer you to any services and resources you might need. Learn more about Managing Research Data.
