ResData allows you to set up and document a Research Data Management Plan (RDMP) for your project – for grant-funded projects this will be linked on-line to the record in InfoEd. A RDMP is required to obtain a storage allocation in the Data Archive.

ResData is also an online catalogue of UNSW datasets and collections of research materials. It records descriptions of UNSW research data. ResData records are published to the online portal Research Data Australia (RDA).

RDA is a discovery service for Australian Research Data. Registering your datasets in RDA is one way of making them discoverable – and hence accessible and potentially available for re-use and sharing. You retain full control over who has access to your data and under what conditions.

Note: ResData is a UNSW Library service.
