Physical, field and digital data
- During the research project physical paper-based data will be stored in locked filing cabinet in the Principle Investigator’s office.
- When conducting fieldwork, research data will be stored on the Principle Investigator’s password-protected laptop and backed up daily on an [external hard drive / USB drive].
- Data will be organised into separate files and stored in a single folder.
- Each file name will contain the project acronym, the type of content (surveys, transcripts, articles, etc.), and the date it was collected.
