Book now – advanced training course on managing your research data

The UK Data Service at the University of Essex is holding an in-depth two-day course, on 18-19 June 2015, to help researchers develop their knowledge and professional skills in handling and managing and sharing the research data they produce.

Focusing on all kinds of social science data, quantitative and qualitative, the course will cover:

  • why and how to share data
  • research and data management planning
  • documenting and providing context for data
  • formatting and organising data
  • ethics, privacy and access
  • rights relating to research data
  • publishing and citing research data

Having these skills are increasingly important to researchers seeking to advance their careers, as they are not taught in most postgraduate programmes. In addition to managing and safekeeping research data for personal use, funders are increasingly mandating data management plans that allow data to be archived and reused, while journals are requiring submission of data underpinning peer-reviewed publications
