An Introduction to Research Data Management

20 January 2016
Library of Birmingham, Birmingham

Overview

Good data management has increasingly become an expected element of high quality research. Funding body mandates are reflecting this change and they now place a greater emphasis on providing evidence of appropriate provision for data management and curation in grant applications.

This half-day workshop will provide an introduction to the research data management landscape and will look at data sharing and data management planning in greater detail. The agenda will include a mixture of presentations and workshops, allowing opportunities for questions and discussion.

By the end of this workshop participants will:

  • Understand funder’s requirements for data management and sharing
  • Learn how research data management and curation can facilitate data sharing and increase citations
  • Understand what a data management plan is and how to complete one
  • Be aware of some of the free tools and support services available

Who should attend?

This course will be of interest to researchers and HEI support staff looking for an understanding of the main issues around research data management and an introduction to ways in which these issues can begin to be addressed.
