Does my data look good in this? Exploring research data management in the creative arts
This free workshop will give you a unique opportunity to meet and share experiences with others who are working to support arts researchers with data management. It will be highly interactive and will explore the nature of 'research data' in the creative arts, its importance, and what we need for its curation and preservation to be effective.
Research data management has become an increasingly hot topic with a number of research funders requiring data to be made openly available and maintained in the long term with a data management plan. Jisc have also instigated a pilot project (2016-17) to develop a national research data shared service.
This workshop will focus on needs of the creative arts research community, where there are few institutional systems for managing research data, and where the terminology of ‘research data’ does not readily translate to artistic practice.
