Research data guidelines – 2014 update now availablePosted: September 22, 2014
A 2014 updated version of Griffith’s Best practice guidelines for researchers: Managing data and primary materials has just been released.
The guidelines contain practical advice on some common research data management issues and provide pointers to Griffith support services and external sources of further information.
The updated version reflects some important changes since the 2013 release such as:
- changes to Australian funding agency rules, in particular the new requirement from the Australian Research Council for grant applicants to outline storage, access and re-use arrangements for research data arising from the project
- improved research data storage options from Griffith University (such as the Research Storage Service launched on 1 August) and the research sector
- the release of Griffith’s new Cloud Hosting Policy which prohibits the use of third party hosted cloud storage services for University data.
