ANDS Guides and Other Resources
These guides provide information about ANDS services and some fundamental issues in data-intensive research and research data management. These are not rules, prescriptions or proscriptions. They are guidelines and checklists to inform and broaden the range of possibilities for researchers, data managers, and research organisations.

Most of these guides have a level designation as well as a title. The three levels are as follows:
- Awareness: Intended for the general public or novice reader. May also serve as an introduction to higher-level documents on the same topic.
- Working: Intended for those who need a working knowledge of the topic. These will tend to focus particularly on how to carry out various tasks, particularly involving services offered by ANDS.
- Expert: Intended only for those who need specialist or advanced management or technical details on this topic.
Not every topic will be covered at all three levels.
We are keen to get feedback on these materials. If you have any comments, constructive criticism, suggestions for improvements or additional topics that we need to cover, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
