Event Details

Title: Day-to-day Management of your Research Data

Description: All too often researchers improvise their management of files... and then disaster strikes and files are lost due to either broken hardware or a confusion of copies and versions.... usually at the most critical moments. To save you from such a fate, every now and again efforts are made by those providing university services. This is one such effort. This event seeks to guide researchers into good practice. Furthermore it is now required by research funders and by universities themselves that, where ethical to do so, research data be made available to the wide community. Awareness of that needs to influence research data creation and storage from the earliest stages of work. 

Course content: Intended for all all research active staff and PhD students, the session will comprise short talks and then working groups.

The talks will outline:

  1. How and why researchers need to plan how they manage their data.
  2. The services on offer (especially DataStore) from the University and the School.

These talks will be followed by opportunities for discussion and an invitation to go into working groups to write your own data management plan with support.
