Research Data Planner Support

Supporting information and links to relevant documentation are provided within Research Data Planner. The tool also provides thought starters for your research data management plan. You might like to investigate the material listed below if you would like support in navigating through the planning questions.

You can also complete the Managing your Research Data online course. Upload a Data Management Worksheet in preparation for writing your data management plan, and gain CaRST points if you are a Higher Degree by Research student.

If you are an HDR student and still have questions, come to this hands-on workshop where you will have a chance to work on your research data management plan and get answers to your questions. You can learn more about University data storage options from a member of the research support team. This workshop is optional; you do not need to attend in order to complete your data management plan. If you wish to attend you must first complete the online course and submit the worksheet.

Your supervisor and colleagues can also help with management of data in your research discipline.

  • Who can I add as a collaborator?

  • Can I delete a plan?

    The system is designed to retain all plans. The following options are available:

    • Rename and edit the plan for another project
    • Keep the plan in your list, perhaps adding 'test' to the name
    • Don't share the plan with anyone - no-one will see it but you.

From time to time there will be updates to Research Data Planner which will impact all users. A summary of the updates will be recorded here.

University staff in particular roles are responsible for administrative tasks in Research Data Planner, including running reports, adjusting user access, and editing the plan template. If you do not have administrative rights, but need a specific administrative task completed, please contact the Research Support team.
