Research Data Management workshops

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 the ‘iSkills workshops’ programme each term Bodleian Libraries runs the following set of FREE workshops on Research Data Management, covering data management planning; institutional funder and publisher requirements; sources of specialist data available at the University of Oxford and elsewhere; working with sensitive or restricted data; issues around preserving data and cybersecurity, confidentiality and informed consent; and where to get support.  These sessions are intended for Postgraduates and Researchers.  Click on any link for further information and to book a session.

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. This session introduces the University’s research data policy and outlines the practical impact this will have on the work of researchers. Some of the tools in preparation to meet the requirements will be outlined, as well as services that are already available. This session 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)
