Workshop on research data management

Book now for the workshop on looking after and managing your research data

Bookings are now open for an in-depth two-day course where researchers can develop their knowledge and professional skills in handling and managing the research data they produce.

New data management requirements are challenging for early career researchers, as the necessary skills are often not taught in Ph.D. programmes.

To fill that gap, the UK Data Archive is offering a course focusing on all kinds of social science data - quantitative and qualitative - across the following seven areas of data management and data sharing:

·         the benefits of good data management
·         data management planning
·         documenting and contextualising your data
·         formatting your data
·         storing your data, including data security, data transfer, encryption and file sharing
·         ethics and consent
·         data copyright
This course, on 24-25 April 2013 at the UK Data Archive, is offered as part of the ESRC Advanced Training Network.
