Griffith’s Research Data Guidelines go globalPosted: September 19, 2013
Griffith’s recently released Research Data Guidelines have already been met with international praise.
Last month, Griffith University released Best practice guidelines for researchers: Managing data and primary materials, a document that aims to help our researchers manage their data better.
Information Services staff compiled the guidelines to communicate with researchers about the services INS can offer them in this area. The document was well received by internal groups, and has now garnered further support from universities and research institutes across Australia and Europe. Here is some of the feedback:
Congratulations on a magic resource. European Commission just funded a project focused on including open practices in standard Grad Schools curricula, so we will be relying on good resources like yours to argue the case. – Dr Ivo Grigorov, National Institute of Aquatic Resources, Technical University of Denmark
It was great to see these Griffith documents. I drew them to the attention of the eResearch Directors at Vic Uni and Deakin and we have been discussing them….This has lead ANDS to consider how we can run a webinar around promoting/assisting in this kinds of activity, which we see as important and strategic. – Dr Richard Ferrers, Australian National Data Service (ANDS)
I’ve had a read through the documents and I think they’re great. – Owen O’Neill, eScholarship Research Centre, University of Melbourne
I’ve recently been drawing together guidelines on good practice in research data management from across the JISC Managing Research Data programme and other sources. I noticed there are a couple of points where you’ve expressed good practice in a particularly succinct way. I wondered if you’d be happy with me drawing on a couple of points from your material? – Laura Molloy, Humanities Advanced Technology and Information Institute, Glasgow University
Your feedback on the guidelines is welcome, as they will be updated regularly to reflect changes in policy, technology and research practices. Have you read the guidelines? What do you think of them?
