To initiate publication of a dataset and/or a dataset description in ResearchDirect, please use the ‘Submit a research dataset’ link on the ResearchDirect homepage.

Use the 'Create Archival Data Record' option (Manage tab) to create a detailed description of your completed dataset. You can then submit this for further curation and inclusion in ResearchDirect and Research Data Australia (using the Publish and Share tab).

The dataset record provides access to the dataset as file attachments or a URL.

Dataset records will be allocated a DOI which can be provided to a journal, if the dataset is supporting a journal article, or used to cite the dataset in other publications.

For further assistance, staff may access the 'Support for research data management planning' enquiry form in the WesternNow Staff Portal.
