Data can be anything used as a basis for reasoning, discussion, calculation and/or creation.
As such all research projects use or interact with data.
Data can take many forms – please see here for examples.
The UNSW research data management plan (RDMP) is structured into five sections:
You need to complete the mandatory Part I (Project Details) and Part II (Data Governance) to submit your RDMP.
An RDMP ID is generated when you click Save or Submit. This ID can be found on the ResData dashboard.
For parts III to V you may need more information about the research project and the data it will collect, generate or use.
The RDMP is a living document which should be reviewed periodically and updated as the project progresses and/or changes.
Entering information in as many fields as possible at the beginning of the research project will prompt you to consider aspects of
how you will manage data throughout the life of the project.
If you have questions or would like assistance completing an RDMP
