Working with data while you do research

Managing Data @ Melbourne

Managing Data @Melbourne is the University's research data management training program. It consists of six short modules, which outline the fundamental practices of good data management. Develop the skills you need to draft your research data management plan.


Melbourne University runs a local instance of Figshare, the global data storage and sharing platform. Figshare allows you to upload and visualise almost any format of data. Your data can be shared and DOIs can be generated through Figshare. Find out more on these pages.

The Australian Research Council and data management

New data management rules introduced by the ARC require that most grant applications contain information about how project data will be managed and shared. These pages provide information about how to successfully complete this section.
