Enterprise research data management system

The Library and ICT are working together to implement an Enterprise Research Data Management System, developing and building the University's capacity to collect, curate and disseminate research data underpinning research outputs.

An Enterprise Research Data Management System (ERDMS) will enable the University to better manage research data outputs, in line with its obligations to under the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research, as well as anticipated future requirements of funding agencies to require researchers to provide a research data management plan and to publish research datasets in the public domain.

After a successful six-month pilot, Figshare was chosen as the best fit solution for meeting these needs, and an institutional version of the platform was launched in October 2017, under the name ResearchData.Latrobe.

ResearchData.Latrobe (powered by Figshare) is now live as a collaborative platform for storing, sharing, and selectively publishing research data.

The benefits of ResearchData.Latrobe are:

  • Store and share your research data securely and easily
  • Collaborate with any researcher in the world
  • Set access conditions to your data
  • Assign a DOI to your data to make it citable and discoverable
