ItemSustainable paths for data-intensive research communities at the University of Melbourne: a report for the Australian Partnership for Sustainable RepositoriesSHADBOLT, ANNA ; VAN DER KNIJFF, DIRK ; YOUNG, EVE ; WINTON, LYLE ( 2006-08)In 2006 the University of Melbourne participated in an eResearch auditing project with the Australian Partnership for Sustainable Repositories (APSR). The focus of this project was to look at the data management needs of a selection of data intensive research communities at the university. A multidisciplinary team within Information Services documented researcher community activity around research data management, storage and sustainability. Eleven research communities from diverse disciplines were selected including: Applied Economics; Astrophysics; Computer Science and Software Engineering; Education; Ethnography; Experimental Particle Physics; Humanities informatics; Hydrology and Environmental Engineering; Linguistics; Medical informatics; Neuroscience, and the Performing Arts. Project findings provided information about general sustainability issues of data management policies and practices at the university. Recommendations around ICT infrastructure and support needs of eResearchers were proposed for consideration by management.
