Guide designed to be used as a resource for encouraging better data management and research integrity in undergraduate dissertations, and is aimed at RDM trainers and teachers supervising research projects and students undertaking them. The resource consists of a number of practical templates and exemplars, and a link to the slides for teaching is also included. These can be adapted and modified to suit various project needs and different disciplines.
This resource aims to help inform students of good data management practice, including appropriate ways to gather consent, transcribe, anonymise and document data. It can:
- develop a critical approach to assessing research design
- understand how other real-life researchers have approached research design
- apply basic principles of data management to research projects
- help students gain awareness of, and the ability to, access and use the resources provided by the UK Data Service.
