There are still places available on our training event Planning, appraising, ingesting and documenting social science data on 27 November 2013.
When it comes to dealing with the ever increasing commitments of research data, the UK Data Service continues to see institutions struggle with the challenges of domain specificity, in particular, how to treat social science data.
How do we help our local researchers cost, plan and manage social science data effectively and following best practice? How do we then appraise, ingest, curate and make accessible that mixed bag of data that a social scientist might have created? How can we effectively demonstrate the impact of sharing?
In this workshop we will showcase our collaborative support and training materials that are being used to support:
- research support staff who face dealing with ensuring compliance with data management responsibilities set out in almost all research applications (as well as persuading them it’s the right thing to do)
- institutional repository managers now charged with appraising, ingesting, describing and managing social science research data created by local academics.
The day includes hands-on work getting your hands dirty with data!
