Institutions are increasingly looking for Research Data Management solutions to support the Research Data Lifecycle. ReDBox and the cloud based ReDbox Lite are the leading Australian solutions that provide organisations with the ability to manage, describe, share and publish research data collections to systems such as Research Data Australia. The capabilities allow end to end tracking and support for the research data lifecycle. It has a flexible workflow system for cataloguing data sets and linking to them wherever they reside. The system evolved over a period of time with considerable input from the research data community and ongoing development and community support continue makes ReDBox suitable for a variety of institutional requirements. The poster outlines how ReDBox supports the Research Data Lifecycle, from Research Data Management Planning, to metadata harvesting, storage provision, collection management and ultimately publication through Research Data Australia and Datacite.
