University of Oxford - Research Data Management Training Materials

Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 

The Data Management Rollout at Oxford (DaMaRO) Project created a research data management policy for the University and the infrastructure to enable researchers to comply with it.

In spring and summer 2013, the DaMaRO Project ran a series of face-to-face training events, aimed chiefly at postgraduate research students and early career researchers. The final versions of the teaching materials from these events are available at this resources website. In addition, there are key resources handouts, case studies in the humanities, social sciences and physical sciences, a list of 20 questions to ask regarding research data management, and the top ten things researchers need to know about research data management.  Slides are available for the training events.
