Research Data Management and Open Data

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

This two-day workshop combines both presentations and interactive activities, exercises, and discussions, will provide Ph.D. students with practical skills directly applicable to their own research. Drawing on a wide range of data – both quantitative and qualitative – the workshop will address the following key topics in data management:

  • Documentation and contextual description
  • Ethical and legal aspects of managing and sharing sensitive data
  • Anonymising research data for reuse
  • Writing a data management plan
  • Data handling (e.g. file organisation and data storage and security)
  • Data preparation

By the end of the workshop, participants will know how to apply good data management practices in their own research and will be able to work more efficiently and effectively with data individually or as part of a research team, where data are often co-produced and shared.
