RDIM Step 6 - Review Review Embargo Period

Review Embargo Period

On completion of the research project, Researchers (including HDR Candidates), often embargo their data for 1-2 years while they continue to use the data for future publications.

The embargo period is assigned by the Lead Investigator at the time of completing the Data Publication.  Once this period has ended, the Research Data Services Team will contact the Data Manager to confirm if the Data Publication can now be published (note that under JCU’s Custodianship Model for Research Data and Information, responsibility for managing research data post project falls to the Data Manager), the Data Manager can chose to approve or extend the embargo.
