Dr Anna Adlam, Senior Lecturer and Co-Director of the Centre for Clinical Neuropsychology Research (CCNR) in the School of Psychology has developed a research data management and open access policy for the Mood Disorders Centre (MDC) and Clinical Education Development and Research (CEDAR) at Exeter.
Following these guidelines will ensure that the data generated by MDC and CEDAR members are stored securely, will be reusable in the future, and can be shared easily amongst collaborators. Moreover they will help MDC and CEDAR members meet funder and/or institutional requirements on research data management and open access.
The policy is available in Open Research Exeter, along with the guidelines that the Marine Renewable Energy Group and the Centre for Cognitive Control and Associative Learning have created to ensure best practice in research data management in their research groups.
If your research group has a research data management policy that they would like to share with other groups, or if you are thinking of developing such a policy, please contact the Open Access and Data Curation Team on firstname.lastname@example.org.
