The University recommends BOX cloud storage for data generated, processed, analysed and stored as part of your research.
In order to manage research data well, you need a flexible solution for data storage, sharing and collaboration. Information Services along with researchers have been piloting the BOX cloud storage solution for research data management. Following this pilot, we are ready to open UoN BOX as an option for storing research data.
BOX makes it easy to organise and share data. It offers automated backup for additional resilience and security. Data stored in BOX can be retained when staff leave the University or change their role. This ensures that research teams won’t lose data when someone leaves.
BOX offers many of the features identified as essential for the management of research data.
Box must not be used to store and share highly confidential information. For example:
