Refreshed research websites bring benefits

We are pleased to announce some major updates to a pair of our research-related websites. These changes are already making it easier for researchers to find the information they are looking for. 

Research Data Oxford

Research Data Oxford is a group of staff drawn from across Oxford who work together to provide advice on the management of research data. The Research Data Oxford website has recently been relaunched, providing a one-stop-shop and key source for research data management at Oxford, with improved guidance for researchers and the wider University community. This new website replaces the previous version, although the URL will remain the same, so there is no need to update links to the former version of the site.

The re-launched RDO website is more user-friendly and presents information in a more organised way. The site offers a quick start guide for those who are new to the world of RDM, along with more detailed information covering all stages of the research data workflow, from developing a data management plan, through keeping sensitive data safe, to storing and preserving your data. The website will also eventually serve as a place for researchers to find out about the many research data-related events taking place, and will act as a hub for RDM at Oxford. 

Advanced Research Computing

The Advanced Research Computing (ARC) service provides access to High Performance Computing (HPC) resources, support, and advice to researchers. 

Over the past few months the ARC websites have also been reviewed and updated, reflecting the latest  compute facilities and providing simplified access to technical, policy and training materials. 

The main ARC service website provides all the information you need, and there is also a page showing upcoming  training sessions. The best place for new users to begin is our ARC getting started pages

More detailed user information about ARC has been moved across to GitHub-hosted ReadtheDocs sites, allowing for easier presentation of technical information, as well as enabling full document download in PDF format. These can be found on the following webpages: 

If you have questions about these services, please contact about RDO or for questions about ARC.
