Data Management Planning Institutional Underpinnings Outputs at the University of Canberra

This data set is a collection of materials used to integrate Research Data Management Planning into the University of Canberra (UC). This work was completed as part of the outputs for the (ARDC) Institutional Underpinnings (IU) Project in 2022: The aim of sharing these materials is to provide awareness and allow the reproduction of the outcomes of this project at other institutions. Below, we briefly describe two components of this project: (1) Integration and (2) Engagement: (1) Integrating a data management planning (DMP) tool (ReDBox) with UC's research manager (Pure) in accordance with new UC DMP Policy. We wanted a seamless workflow for researchers to create and develop a data management plan for new research projects. That is, an integrated system that is initiated when a project is awarded in Pure, spurring the creation of a ReDBox data management plan with fields pre-filled with information from the Pure project so that researchers do not need to re-fill the same information in different platforms. (2) Raise awareness of this integration and the benefits of DMP for researchers. We wanted to educate researchers on the aims of DMP (specifically risk-management and data governance) as well as how to engage with that at UC, i.e. using Pure and ReDBox for their research projects and associated data management. Please refer to the README contained in the Outputs folder for additional information, and the project page: DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.7655390. This project was one of 25 funded in the IU initative.
