Bodleian iSkills: Managing Social Science Research
Tuesday 2nd February, 14.00-16.00
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. Main subjects will include: 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). This session is not only essential during your DPhil but will be invaluable if you plan to continue in the field of research as a career.
