Managing Social Science research data

Good research data management is a vital component of academic practice. Part of this is the principle that the data used to develop the arguments and outcomes of your research should, where possible, be effectively stored, preserved and usable. Bodleian Libraries are running a workshop that introduces the University’s research data policy, outlines the practical impact this will have on the work of researchers, and looks at some of the tools in preparation to meet the requirements as well as services that are already available. This workshop is not only essential during your DPhil but will be invaluable if you plan to continue in research as a career.

Key topics to be covered:

  • Common dangers and pitfalls of digital data
  • Effective organisation of your data
  • Getting the most from your data and producing a data management plan
  • Data creation and funder requirements
  • Preserving data; embargoes and access restrictions
  • Oxford based tools for research data management (RDM)
