RDCR Managing your research data 

Upcoming courses: 10 Oct 17, 28 Nov 17, 6 Feb 18, 17 Apr 18. All in the Library TalkLab, Level 3, from 1.30 - 4 pm

Research Councils and funding bodies increasingly require evidence of adequate and appropriate provisions for data management and curation in new grant funding applications. This course is for researchers and research support staff who want to learn more about developing sound data management and curation plans and how data management planning can improve the potential impact of their research.  The session will be illustrated with real-life examples. 

 

RIDMP Introduction to DMPonline 

Upcoming courses: 11 Oct 17, 29 Nov 17, 8 Feb 18, 18 Apr 18. All in the Library Jura Lab, Level 4, from 2 - 4 pm

The University and most funding bodies now require researchers who collect data of some sort as part of their work to write a Data Management Plan (DMP). Plans typically state what data will be created and how, and outline the plans for sharing and preservation, noting what is appropriate given the nature of the data and any restrictions that may need to be applied. DMPonline is a flexible web-based tool you can use to create your own DMPs. This course is for all researchers who collect data as part of their work, and for support staff. The course will provide an introduction to data management planning and guidance on using DMPonline. During the course, participants will have an opportunity to try DMPonline for themselves.
