Research Data Management webinar

4 Apr 2018 - 10:15

How do researchers develop their data curation skills in order to participate in the emerging field of data management and sharing, and do so in an ethical, legal way?

In this presentation, Michelle Willmers and Thomas King from the Research on Open Educational Resources for Development (ROER4D) project share their experiences and insights around curating and publishing data in a large-scale Global South networked project. Focusing on the increasing importance of data-sharing mandates and funder requirements around data management as well as the personal and collaborative benefits of data stewardship, the presentation focuses on practical strategies for improving data management practice in qualitative and quantitative contexts.

The session provides researchers with guidelines on how to undertake data management planning in the research scoping and grant proposal stages, and how to prepare data for publication and reuse.
