Research Data Management

The economic and social value of Australia’s research data is becoming increasingly apparent. In fact, it is estimated that research data in Australia is worth up to $6 billion a year (Report to the Australian National Data Service (ANDS) November 2014), much of which is untapped. At the heart of unleashing this value is making data openly available to be shared and reused wherever possible.

For the researcher, publishing findings and sharing research data and methodologies is integral to gaining credibility and advancing in their careers, and for some, becoming recognised as experts in their field.
