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 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.

Careful management of your data is vital for the health of your research project and having a robust research data management plan is increasingly required by funders.

A good research data management plan will ensure that:

  • you create, collect, store, structure and use your data in the most effective way for your particular research needs
  • your data is safely backed up and preserved for the future
  • you can make your data available to others where appropriate (and when mandated by your funder)
  • sensitive and confidential data is kept securely

Although having an effective research data management plan is really important, it can be difficult to know where to start.     Bodleian Libraries run a series of workshops covering elements of Research Data Management.  The next workshop in this series will take place on  Thursday 8th February and will introduce MANTRA, an online learning course covering best practice in research data management.  During the workshop you will have an opportunity to start the tutorial with help at hand from the Bodleian Libraries’ Data Librarian and to ask him questions about managing data for your own research project.  >Book a place on Bodleian iSkills: Get managing your data off to a good start with MANTRA
