Abstract

The Data Audit Framework provides organisations with the means to identify, locate and assess the current management of their research data assets. Armed with this information they are in a position to improve ongoing data management. In this article we share our experiences of implementing the Framework and report back on the kind of data issues researchers commonly face. We also indicate how the Framework will be further developed before being released for widespread adoption.
