    Seeking win + win + win + win + win……
    Where do I safely keep my data from my fieldwork, as I travel home?
    How do we ensure we have access to our research data after some of the team have left?
    How can our research collaborations share data, and make them available once complete?
    How can I best keep years worth of research data secure and accessible for when I and others need to re-use it?
    How do we ensure compliance to funders’ requirement for several years of open access to data?

    Research Integrity, London - Sept 2011
     High level statements from University’s Research Computing Strategy (AY2007-8)
    contains an ‘embryonic Research Data Policy’
    • Researchers will have access to world-class data services which will include storage, backup, sharing and access facilities to enable re-use, curation, and archive of data that they obtain through experimentation, observation and simulation or that is purchased or procured for use in research. It will be possible share data with groups both within and beyond the University.
    • 6. Researchers will have the skills and knowledge to make best use of the computational facilities available to them. Training will be available in order to ensure this is the case.
    • 7. Flexible and timely support will be available for all researchers to help them to make the most of these services.
    • 8. Research facilities will be available to collaborators from different institutions and to independent visiting scholars and will support mobile researchers.

    RDM Policy approved by University Court – http://tiny.cc/6u2s1
    It shall be the University's policy that:
    • Research data should be managed to the highest standards throughout the research data lifecycle as part of the University's commitment to research excellence. 
    • 9. The Universityshould provide training, support and advice, as well as mechanisms and services for storage, backup, registration, deposit and retention of research data assets in support of current and future access, during and after completion of research projects.
    • 10. Responsibility for research data management through a sound research data management plan during any research project or programme lies primarily with PIs. 
    • 11. All new research proposals must include research data management plans or protocols that explicitly address data capture, management, integrity, confidentiality, retention, sharing and publication.
    • 12. Research data management plans must ensure that research data are available for access and re-use,where appropriate and under appropriate safeguards. 
    • 13. The legitimate interests of the subjects of research data must be protected. 
    • 14. Research data of future historical interest, and all research data that represent records of the University, including data that substantiate research findings, should be offered and assessed for deposit and retention in an appropriate national or international data service or domain repository, or a University repository. Such research data deposited elsewhere should be registered with the University.

    Some of the elements of our RDM Implementation Plan
    Pre-award: self-help for preparation of RDM plans on website, using DCC DMP Online
    Data management throughout the project: guidance on storing & managing data, incl compliance and built-in curation, to ensure good practice from the outset
    Metadata service: advisory service on creating metadata
    Data storage throughout the project: provision of information about Edinburgh research data storage services
    Archiving data: services to help researchers decide how to archive data at end of project or other appropriate point
    Making research data visible: information about how to make research data available to defined audiences
