Funding advisors can help with costing RDM for funding applications, but some University of Plymouth information around costs for all researchers can be found below:
For further information, please see the RDM page on Storage and Backup.
Note: Any alternative IT service will need to be funded by your project and support will be provided on best endeavours.
Do you require transcription services, website development or other commercial services which has a cost associated and will need to be included in any funding calculations? Suppliers will also need to comply with the University’s Procurement obligations so should be sourced prior to funding to ensure appropriate costs are included. Check to see what University licences and services are already available to you before seeking your own.
Information on approved suppliers can be found in Sharepoint on the Procurement site.
If you are depositing using another repository, they should include information on costs within their guidance. Our pages on Selection, Preservation and Sharing has more information on decided what to retain, for how long, and choosing a suitable repository.
