CSU has been participating in an Australian National Data Service (ANDS) funded Open Data Collection Project. The first dataset included was from Roshan Thapa’s PhD and the second set was our survey on research support services. Both can be accessed from RDA https://researchdata.ands.org.au/dr-roshan-thapa/477630 or https://researchdata.ands.org.au/academic-library-survey-research-management/477634 via CRO, CSU’s institutional repository.
Part of the service is to create a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) which can facilitate data citation. Citing data is increasingly being recognised as one of the key practices leading to recognition of data as a primary research output.
The current two CSU open datasets are:
Thapa, Roshan ( 2015 ): Botanal and Seedling Data: Rehabilitation of perennial pastures PhD Project. Charles Sturt University. URI: http://researchoutput.csu.edu.au/R/-?func=dbin-jump-full&object_id=67852&local_base=GEN01-CSU01.
Kennan, Mary Anne ; Corrall, Sheila ; Afzal, Waseem ( 2015 ): Academic library survey responses data: Research support services, including bibliometrics and research data management. Charles Sturt University & University of Pittsburgh. URI: http://researchoutput.csu.edu.au/R/-?func=dbin-jump-full&object_id=67918&local_base=GEN01-CSU01.
