Research data is the information, records and files that are collected or used during the research process. Examples include notebooks, recordings, survey forms, specimens and other samples, photographs or computer code required to reconstruct meaningful information.

Research data management is about the planning, collecting, storage, sharing and promotion of research data.

Publish and promote your research data using Figshare. With Figshare, you can:

  • publish, share and promote your research;
  • mint DOIs (Digital Object Identifiers) for citation purposes

  • discover, reuse, and cite research data from colleagues at RMIT and beyond.

Figshare will automatically publish records to Research Data Australia.
