Tri-Agency Research Data Management Policy

The Tri-Agency Research Data Management Policy supports Canadian research excellence by promoting sound Research data management (RDM) and data stewardship practices.

The policy requires post-secondary institutions eligible to administer Tri-Agency funding to have an institutional RDM strategy publicly available by March 1 2023.

UVic Research Data Management Strategy

Research data management refers to the processes applied throughout the lifecycle of a project to guide the collection, documentation, storage, sharing and preservation of data resulting from research and other scholarly or creative work.

The RDM Strategy describes the university’s commitment to promoting and supporting researchers with research data management, including creating data management plans, storing and curating research data throughout a project, and depositing data with a data repository for long-term management and preservation, in ways that are consistent with ethical and legal obligations.
