At the start of your research project you will be planning to either use data from other sources, or collect your own data.
These are some of the things you should plan for:
Who should submit a Plan?
Research Data Management (RDM) is a recommendation of the Australian Code for Responsible Conduct of Research as well as being required by many funding bodies. Many funding bodies require RDM to be specifically addressed in the applications.
Charles Sturt has an RDM policy requiring all active research projects (whether funded externally or not) to have a RDM Plan.
The plan can be added to or amended as the research project evolves. If you need assistance contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: this form is also serves as a request for Research Data Storage at Charles Sturt.
Approval and peer review process
Copies of the form go to:
Subsequent editing and updates to the Plan: The researcher should use the online form to resubmit previously submitted details, along with the updated information. This process creates a new copy.
For Higher Degree Research students, your supervisor needs to sign the form. The plan will be emailed to you. You can forward it to your supervisor. The supervisor can sign using the 'signing' feature on the PDF.
Help is available at any stage of research. Ask your experienced colleagues, your supervisor, or contact email@example.com
