Research data management
As a researcher you are responsible for efficiently and responsibly carrying out your research and for communicating the results of research effectively. Good data management can save time and give you peace of mind that your data is not at risk. If your data is not subject to commercial and ethical restrictions, you can also increase your research profile by including data outputs on open access in the Southern Cross Research Portal via your Southern Cross Researcher Profile. Contact ResearchPortal@scu.edu.au to arrange an appointment to describe your data set.
