data management

From 3-7 July 2017, EUDAT is organising a Summer School to introduce early-career researchers to the principles and tools needed for careers in data science and data management. The week-long training course will be set in the stunning landscapes of Heraklion, Crete, and kindly hosted by FORTH.

The University of Glasgow is offering a fully-funded 4 year PhD studentship on managing data related to animal disease outbreaks. This is supported by the Lord Kelvin Adam Smith (LKAS) programme and is suited to those with an interest in digital preservation, data management and epidemiology.

The DCC is involved in a few European Commission funded projects at the moment, namely FOSTER, OpenAIRE and EUDAT. On each we're providing training and support about open data, data management planning and Horizon 2020.

Please note that updated guidance on customising DMPonline is now available. (10 July 2014)
 
We've been developing some guidelines on how to customise DMPonline for your institution.
The first thing to do is determine what you need:

We received lots of feedback that we should shorten the DCC Checklist for a Data Management Plan and have managed to condense it to 13 questions and some basic administrative information. More detailed questions are used as pointers to help researchers decide how to respond and we've enhanced the guidance.
Here are the questions:

Marieke and I were in Northampton earlier this week to run a 3 hour training session for librarians.
We've been really impressed with the work to emerge from the Jisc MRD programme and elsewhere so pulled together various aspects of the different courses. The course slides and an accompanying handbook (inspired by the Leeds RoaDMaP project) are available on the new RDM for librarians webpage.

Issue 56 of the Society of College, National and University Libraries (SCONUL) Focus newsletter is dedicated to innovation in research support. 
Many of the articles provide practical examples of what libraries are doing to improve research data management support and how the professional role of librarians are evolving to support research data management and curation. 

This new Jisc funded study investigates the research data management needs of academic chemists.

Some places remain for the DCC Northeast England Roadshow in Newcastle upon Tyne, 23-24 April.

Registration is now open for the DCC Roadshow for the Northwest of England. The event is being organised in conjunction with The Library, University of Salford.
