What type of data can I store in the Data Archive?
The Data Archive is suitable for research data which is no longer required for active use. Examples of data that is suitable for archiving includes:
- Data that belongs to a completed project needs to be stored for reference and must comply with the funding agencies guidelines.
- Data that may be considered difficult to reproduce (raw data).
- Reference data that will be used multiple times.
- Data from computations and final output.
- Research data you need to remove from your local data stores in order to free up space for current research.
Do not upload documentation;
- Not directly related to UNSW research; including personal documents and photos, music, or personal emails.
- Teaching and administrative materials.
- Back-ups of portable or networked computers.
