It is often a challenge to get the engagement with the right internal stakeholders, system providers and to ensure that the end-users have a simple and effective systems to support their research.
The University of Canberra (UC) is currently undertaking a project to develop a Research Data Management framework. UC engaged with Elsevier and QCIF to help fill the gap in our processes and solutions and provide researchers with appropriate tools to assist them in their research data management planning such using RedBox, Mendeley Data and Mendeley data Monitor.
Though these systems were implemented independently, the University is now working actively with both providers with a pilot project to integrate these various research management systems and our ethics system (Infonetica). In this process we have learnt some valuable lessons along the way.
This presentation talks about the challenges face and the solutions used to support this project. The development of our research data management policy/procedure, guidelines for researchers on how to appropriately classify the sensitivity of research data and providing the appropriate storage solutions to help future proof our research.
