Because good research needs good data

Other DCC Events

The Digital Curation Centre (DCC) is delighted to announce we will host a one-day workshop on May 8th in Glasgow to help UK HEIs to assess their readiness to comply with EPSRC policy framework on research data. 

DMPonline is the DCC's web-based tool to help researchers write Data Management Plans. We've recently released a new version of the tool which offers a lot of flexibility in terms of how institutions can customise it. You can create your own template to provide questions and guidance that researchers should respond to, add tailored guidance to help researchers answer funders questions, and provide examples and suggested answers.

If you have an interest in training researchers how to use computing, software or data, you should attend the workshop for e-Infrastructure trainers on 14 August at the newly opened Hartree Centre.

The goal of the workshop is to create a community of trainers who will work together to improve the quality and provision of e-Infrastructure training. We will bring together a huge variety of trainers so that they can network, share ideas and work on a strategy for improving training.

About the Workshop

Developing effective means of measuring the impact of data publication is essential if data is to become recognised as a first class research output. The field of data metrics is still in its infancy, although both established indexing services and ‘altmetrics’ providers are now offering services which measure aspects of data use and impact.

The University of Edinburgh with support from the Digital Curation Centre, EDINA, and Edinburgh University Library are delighted to announce that after its temporary incorporation into Open Repositories 2012 the Repository Fringe will return as a standalone event this year to be held in the Informatics Forum.

Further sponsors and supporters to be announced.

Repository Fringe aims to showcase a range of innovative repository and related developments to coincide with 'preview week' that precedes the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

The Visual Arts Data Service (VADS) in conjunction with the Digital Curation Centre (DCC), through the JISC-funded KAPTUR project invites Information Managers, Research Data Managers, Librarians, and other UK higher education staff or researchers with an interest in managing visual arts research data to this workshop. 

The event has been inspired by a DCC and ANDS 'how-to guide': How to Appraise & Select Research Data for Curation written by Angus Whyte (DCC) and Andrew Wilson (ANDS).

 

 

This practical workshop is aimed at those who are considering incorporating DataCite services into their repository and would like to learn more about how to work with the technology.

DataCite Technical Lead, Ed Zukowski, will present an overview of the DataCite technical infrastructure and participants will have an opportunity to sample the services on offer through a series of hands-on sessions. 

Topics covered will include:

The three key aims of DataCite are to improve the discovery of, access to and use of research data. 

The theme for the European Summer meeting is 'Digital Research Data in Practice: solutions for improving discovery, access and use' and will focus on demonstrating practical ways that DataCite, its members and data centres are enabling these aims to be implemented.

See the Programme on the DataCite website.

EDINA, the University of Edinburgh's Information Services and the Digital Curation Centre are delighted to announce that the University of Edinburgh will be hosting the Seventh International Conference on Open Repositories (OR2012) from 9-13 July, 2012.
