Data management

The recording, storage and management of research data at FedUni is guided by the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research.

The Code advocates and describes best practice for both universities and researchers and includes guidance on how to manage research data and materials, publish and disseminate research findings, conduct effective peer review, and manage conflicts of interest.

The research data at Federation University is recorded and managed in a research management system called Integrated Research Management Application (IRMA).

The Publications and Contracts/Grants Modules are the first modules to be made available to researchers.

Publications module (Research Outputs)

Whilst every effort has been made to update research publications, not every publication has been accounted for. Publications will continue to be added on an ongoing basis.

Research outputs (publications) information is recorded and stored in the Publications module and includes all bibliometric information such as: Publication year, Output type, Title, Numbers of internal/external authors, Journal name, Volume, Issue number, Start and end page numbers, DOI, Scopus ID, Co-author names, Citation count.

Research outputs are collected through various sources such as harvested directly from Scopus, Web of Science and manual entry.

Contracts/Grants module

Research Funding (Contracts and Grants) information is recorded and stored in the Grants module and includes details of a research funding project - from application, reporting and management for research grants, contracts, tenders and fellowships.
