The ANU Data Commons is a central data repository for ANU research data. The repository is designed to securely store data and ensure that the data is immune to format and media changes so that the data can be read and reused. Access to the data can be open (anyone can download and access it) or embargoed (access is restricted until a particular date) or restricted (people have to ask to get access to the data). For more information, please contact Doug.Moncur@anu.edu.au.
Open Research@ANU allows members of the University to share research with the wider community. Open Research@ANU accepts journal articles, conference papers, book chapters, working or technical papers and other forms of scholarly communication. It is also a repository for digital images of manuscripts and photographs in University research collections. For more information, please contact email@example.com.
The National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) provides advanced computing support to a wide spectrum of research fields, including earth science, engineering, social science and the humanities. Advanced computing includes high performance computing, large or complex data management, high-end visualization (including virtual environments), and virtual community management.
NCI supports projects with large data or data intensive requirements. The areas covered include:
· managing large or complex data repositories
· Web portals and specialist tools
· curation advice of data and metadata
· grid technologies for remote access, transfer and replication of data
· relational database management support
· data mining and analysis
· support for data workflows and pipelines linking to instruments or computational models
· project tracking, auditing and performance advice
The facility manages a large mass data storage system which is an environment that supports many of these activities. ANU researchers can secure cpu-hours on NCI’s peak computing system, Raijin by applying through NCMAS or the ANU Allocation Scheme.
For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the ANU Allocation Scheme web page.
Although not specifically an ANU service, the Australian Data Archive (ADA) has been an important service located on the ANU campus since the 1980s, and many ANU researchers choose to archive their data with the ADA.
