Is your research data stored securely?
With UniSQ’s secure digital storage facilities, access files whenever you need and wherever you are, share them with your collaborators in Australia and overseas, enjoy peace of mind that your research data is stored securely and comply with all relevant policies and legislation.
We assist researchers to access, setup and use research data storage via the recommended secure digital storage facilities provided by UniSQ, to facilitate good research data management practice. We also help to develop research data management strategies and plans.
UniSQ policy recommends maintaining three copies of research data – one primary and two secondary copies, which keeps you covered if something goes wrong.
Some third-party services may store data in offshore data centres, which can breach privacy legislation and University policy. With UniSQ’s offered storage services, data is stored in Australia in a way aligned with UniSQ’s Research Data and Primary Materials Management Procedure
Further, UniSQ’s Research Data Management and Indigenous Data Governance Schedule
outlines the University’s management of digital Research Data under the framework of FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) Data principles and CARE (Collective Benefit, Authority to Control, Responsibility and Ethics) Data Principles for Indigenous Data.
