Managing research data is a key element in the process of scholarly communication.
Researchers are required to manage their research data and primary materials in order to meet the requirements of the Australian and Griffith University Codes for the Responsible Conduct of Research and funding bodies. Planning for the management of research data early in a research project can improve research efficiency, guard against data loss and ensure preservation of valuable cultural assets to maximise Griffith's research impact.
This resource complements the Griffith Best Practice Guidelines for researchers: Managing Research Data and Primary Materials by providing creative arts-specific information and training resources.
It covers key elements involved in managing your data throughout the research lifecycle:
