Research Data Management policy

The University of Cape Town is currently drafting a Research Data Management (RDM) Policy. Read the latest draft.

At UCT, the drivers and principles for managing research data are emerging in response to a number of policies published by funders of research, which include:

  • ensuring the validation of research results

  • providing research opportunities in data reuse

  • enabling actionable and socially-beneficial science to address global research challenges.

Making data resulting from publicly-funded research open access requires consideration of the necessary limits on openness. The UCT RDM Policy will assist researchers in complying with legal requirements and emerging terms of funding and scholarly publishing regarding personal information and commercial considerations.
