We want to acknowledge Griffith University, especially Sam Searle. Griffith University's Best practice guidelines for researchers provided a wonderful launching pad for these guidelines.

We want to acknowledge the Monash University research data management guidelines which also provided us with useful information for these guidelines.

We want to acknowledge the Australian National Data Service (ANDS). Many ANDS resources have been consumed in the creation of these guidelines.

Managing and Sharing Research Data: A Guide to Good Practice, by Louise Corti, Veerle Van den Eynden, Libby Bishop and Matthew Woollard, was a particularly useful resource in developing this guide.

We want to acknowledge the generous input and advice we have received from every area of La Trobe University whose responsibilities intersect with those of the research data team in the library.

We want to acknowledge Andrew Williams of the University of Adelaide.
