New Research Data Management website

A new website designed to support researchers with their research data management activities is now available at This has been developed by Research Services in collaboration with OUCS.

The website includes information about:

• research funder requirements in the area of research data management
• services available within the University to assist researchers in this area
• guidance on how to produce a data management plan as part of a funding application
• further sources of advice and online guidance, updates and news, and tools and training available to help

Previously, web-based information about research data management was available from a number of sites across the University but it was felt that a single source of `signposting' information would be a valuable resource for researchers from all subject disciplines at differing stages of the research cycle, increasing understanding of the benefits of improved research data management, as well as communicating the range of services available.

The website is one of the project outputs from the JISC-funded ‘Embedding Institutional Data Curation Services in Research' (EIDCSR) project, which aims to scope the requirements to manage and curate research data generated by Oxford researchers. The intention is that information available from the site will increase as policy and services in this area develop.
