Software, Repositories & Data Management


Saving, Storing and Sharing

Research Projects have always generated a considerable quantity of data and as the amount of information created continues to increase rapidly, issues around its management and curation are becoming increasingly important.

Funders and publishers are increasingly requiring that data generated through a project or supporting publications be made openly accessible. As a result good data management practice and the tools that support this are important parts of the research landscape. The Centre plays a dual role from this perspective, both in terms of managing data  created by our own projects and through projects for which this very problem is a specific focus.

The DataFlow project offers a two-stage data management infrastructure, making it easy for researchers to work with, annotate, publish & permanently store data.

The NeuroHub project is developing a research information system for neuroscientists at Oxford, Reading and Southampton.
