Help with digital research available

Reading time: 2 minutes

A number of resources are available to staff in all stages of research, including scaling up, managing research data and complying with funders’ requirements.

A recently launched interactive resource finder helps researchers identify the digital tools best suited for each project. Via simple questions, organised around the research lifecycle, the requirements of each project can be set, leading to a list of recommended resources for the consideration of the user.

To help with budgeting for IT equipment, data storage and other computing needs, the Digital Research Services team recommend using the Research Computing Funding Checklist which gives suggestions of IT-related items and costs to consider when planning new research and seeking funding.
