|UK Data Service: Secure Lab||
The UK Data Service SecureLab has enabled secure access to the most sensitive and confidential data in the collection since 2011. SecureLab provides controlled access to data that are too detailed, sensitive or confidential to be made available under less restrictive access levels.
|UK Data Service: Teaching with Data||
This is a collection of resources dedicated to teachers, trainers and their students but could also be useful to researchers and the general public. It includes guides, e-books, slides and webinars covering a wide range of topics: quantitative methods, statistical software, teaching data analysis, data visualisation, qualitative methods and psychosocial approaches.
|Australian Research Data Commons Training Materials||
The ARDC is a transformational initiative that enables Australian research community and industry access to nationally significant, leading edge data intensive eInfrastructure, platforms, skills and collections of high-quality data. The purpose of the ARDC is to provide Australian researchers with competitive advantage through data, providing access to leading edge eResearch collections, tools, infrastructure and services. Its mission is to accelerate research and innovation by driving excellence in the creation, analysis and retention of high-quality data assets.
|Teaching resource: Non-interview methods||
This teaching resource provides instructors and students with materials designed to assist in teaching qualitative methods of data collection.
This resource provides brief summaries of some of the different ways in which researchers can collect qualitative data, including focus groups, diaries, online data collection, and visual methods. Each summary is accompanied by an illustrative data sample from the extensive collections held by the UK Data Archive.
|Delivering Research Data Management Services||
This is a five-week course for individuals that support researchers to manage and share their data, including librarians, IT and information specialists, data stewards, and research office staff. You’ll discover common research support services, how to create data management plans, and how to develop your own research data management roadmap. You will learn from experts in the field from the internationally-recognised Digital Curation Centre and Research Data Netherlands and build your confidence in supporting researchers and preserving data. This course has been certified by the CPD Certification Service as conforming to continuing professional development principles.
|Cite the data||
Citing a dataset correctly is just as important as citing articles, books, images and websites - each dataset is a source of evidence to support our argument.
This resource includes videos, presentations and top ten tips for citing data. These can be used by trainers to teach and highlight the importance of data citation.
QAMyData is an easy-to-use, open source tool that provides a health check for numeric data. The tool uses automated methods to detect and report on some of the most common problems in survey or numeric data, such as missingness, duplication, outliers and direct identifiers.
The tool offers a number of configurable tests that have been categorised into four types: file, metadata, data integrity, and identifiers, which can be run on popular file formats, including SPSS, Stata, SAS and CSV. A standard config file has default settings for each test, such as a threshold for pass or fail on various tests (e.g. detect value label that are truncated, email addresses identified as a string, or undefined missing values) which can be easily adapted to meet the user’s own desired thresholds. The configuration feature allows the creation of a unique Data Quality Profile. The software creates a ‘data health check’ that details errors and issues as both a summary and detailed report, providing a location of the failed test. New tests can easily be added. Data depositors and publishers can act on the results and resubmit the file until a clean bill of health is produced.
DMPonline is a web-based tool that supports researchers to develop data management and sharing plans. It contains the latest funder templates and best practice guidelines to support users to create quality DMPs.
|OpenAIRE FAQ on Open Science, RDM||
FAQ by OpenAIRE answering various questions around Open Science and RDM.
|Use cases of OpenAIRE services for different stakeholders||
OpenAIRE is preparing use case narratives with scenarios of Open Science services offered by OpenAIRE targeting different users: researchers, research communities/research infrastructures, content providers, funders, managers of research.
The main goal is to showcase how OpenAIRE services are contributing to embed Open Science into researchers' daily workflow and to implement and align Open Science policies and infrastructures across European research institutions.
Benefits and assumptions of those who already use the OpenAIRE services and several best practices on Open Access publishing, sharing research data and enriching the repositories content will be made available on the website
