Data refers to anything which underpins a research output, and can exist in any media.

‘Data’ includes things like audio-visual recordings, digital images, objects, software, interview transcripts, survey results, sketchbooks and lab notes, as well as Excel Spreadsheets and SPSS documents, so most researchers will work with data of some form.

If you have not created any new data as a result of your research, you do not need to upload your evidence to e-space.

However, you are obliged to include a data access statement on any published outputs that states that you have not created any new data. You should also include information about how to access any third-party data you may have used during your research.
