Computers are data is becoming the new central to archiving and analysingthis information, but their processing reality to which research will power isn’t increasing fast enough, and their costs are decreasing too have to adapt.” slowly, to keep up with the deluge.” – John Wilbanks (Creative Commons) - Elizabeth Pennisi (Science Author)“Data is more like soup “I worry there wont be – it’s messy and you enough people around todon’t know what’s in it.” do the analysis.” – Liz Lyon (UK DCC) –Chris Ponting (University of Oxford UK, Computational biologist) The University of Western Australia

Benefits: ComplianceThe CodeThe Australian Code for the Responsible Conductof Research guides researchers and institutions inresponsible research practices.Section 1: General principles of responsible researchSection 2: Management of research data and primary materials – Proper management and retention of research data. – Researcher must decide which data to retain – May be determined by law, funding agency, publisher or a discipline’s convention. The University of Western Australia
  12. 12. Benefits: Compliance UWA Code of Conduct for the Responsible Practice of Compliance with Research http://www.research.uwa.edu.au/staff/research-policy/guidelines Section 2 refers to the management of research data and primary materials and states: 2.1 Data (including electronic data) must be recorded in a durable and appropriately referenced form. 2.2 Data must be held for sufficient time to allow access and reference. Recommended a minimum 5 years from date publication, but up to 15 years for specific types (eg clinical studies) 2.3 Wherever possible, original data must be retained in the school or research centre in which it was generated... In all cases, prior to the publication of research findings a Location of Data Form must be completed. These guidelines should be seen as a framework for sound research practice and for the protection of individual research workers, including both staff and postgraduate research students, from possible misunderstandings.
