Managing research data and Data Management Planning (DMPs)

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 be effectively stored and managed during a project, preserved for the future and – where possible – shared with other academics.  As part of this term’s ‘iSkills workshops’ programme, Bodleian Libraries are running a set of FREE workshops on Research Data Management, the first of which introduces the University’s research data policy and outlines the practical impact this will have on your work. The services available at Oxford to assist you will be outlined. This session is not only essential during your current studies but will be invaluable if you plan to continue in research as a career.
