The Australian National Data Service

The Australian National Data Service (ANDS) aims to make Australia's research data assets more valuable for researchers, research institutions and the nation. ANDS offers many guides to aid understanding of research data management (see the section at the bottom of this page).

ANDS' flagship service is the Research Data Australia discovery portal where you can find, access and reuse data for research from Australian research organisations, government agencies and cultural institutions.

ANDS is part of the Australian Research Data Commons that includes  Nectar and the Research Data Service.
