Data retention

When leaving Griffith:

  • make plans for the data you are taking with you
  • nominate a custodian, for example, your Head of School, for the data you are leaving.

Read the Schedule of Retention Periods for Research Data and Primary Materials for guidance on how long to keep your data and primary materials.

It reflects the minimum periods outlined in the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (2018).

In the context of this Schedule, research data are defined as:

factual records, which may take the form of numbers, symbols, text, images or sounds, used as primary sources for research, and that are commonly accepted in the research community as necessary to validate research findings.
