The University's preferred method for publishing a dataset record is via ResearchDirect

The first step is to complete a dataset description in ResearchDirect.

This will be the basis for a published record that will appear in Research Data Australia

  • Use the ‘submit a research dataset’ button from the  ResearchDirect to start the process.
  • Sign in with your Western account.
  • Go to the ‘Manage’ tab to create the description.
  • Once complete, go to the ‘Publish and Share’ tab to progress that record through for review by Library staff.

A Library staff member will contact you should they require further information about the dataset description or availability of data files.

For further assistance, staff may access the 'Support for research data management planning' enquiry form in the WesternNow Staff Portal.
If you are an HDR student, please use the enquiry form in the WesternNow Student Portal.
