Research Data Management Policy

The University of Salford RDM Policy outlines the University’s approach to ensuring best practice in Research Data Management throughout the data lifecycle. It is informed by research funder data policies.

The Policy applies to all research data created by academic staff and postgraduate research students (PGRs). The Policy does not apply to postgraduate taught students or undergraduates, but support and guidance for best research practice is available to everyone. The Policy’s primary application is to ensure current (from Policy publication date) and future research data which are generated, or are in use, are discoverable and accessible. Over time, the University will endeavour to make older research data discoverable and accessible.
