Data Storage: Data Management Plans

Do not forget to include information about your method of storing research data in the data management section of your grant proposal and the costs in the budget.

LABARCHIVES

The research will be conducted using LabArchives, a secure cloud-based electronic lab notebook application enabling researchers to easily create, store, share, and manage their research. The University of Utah has a site license and LabArchives has been approved by the University’s ISO for sensitive data. Access (explain how access will be managed) to maintain compliance. All data is regularly backed up and maintained in multiple locations. LabArchives maintains an audit trail and is 21 CFR Part 11 compliant. LabArchives supports efforts to ensure research data is reproducible and reusable.

If you are going to be collaborating with researchers at another institution and they do not have a LabArchives site license, then they can use the UU's site license. Add this to your data management plan:

As a result of the site license, collaborators at (list the collaborators) will be able to use the University of Utah’s LabArchives.

REDCAP

The research will be conducted using REDCap, a secure web-based application for creating and managing online surveys and databases.The REDCap.software is housed at the Center for High Performance Computing at the University of Utah on servers compliant for restricted data; 21 CFR Part 11, FISMA, FERPA  and HIPAA. Data is fully backed up. Access (explain how access will be managed) to maintain compliance. REDCap is administered by the Biomedical Informatics Core at the University of Utah, School of Medicine. REDCap supports efforts to ensure research data is reproducible and reusable.

UBOX

Files resulting from this research will be stored in Ubox, an online cloud storage and collaboration tool for storing, accessing and sharing files and folders.The University of Utah has a site license and UBox has been approved by the University’s ISO for sensitive data. (OR: The University of Utah has a site license and UBox supports HIPAA/FERPA regulations, therefore has been approved by the University's ISO for restricted data.) Access (explain how access will be managed) to maintain compliance. Data is regularly backed up.

THE HIVE

The research data from this project will be deposited with The Hive: University of Utah Data Repository under a (type of license) to ensure that the research community and public have access to the data for (number of years). A README file will be deposited describing the research and data sufficient enough to reproduce the research and/or reuse the data. By depositing the project data with The Hive good curation practice is ensured, e.g. migration to new formats, platforms, and storage media.
