The Data Management Expert Guide is designed by European experts from the CESSDA Training Working Group to help social science researchers make their research data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR).

The guide is written for social science researchers who are in an early stage of practising research data management. With this guide, CESSDA wants to contribute to professionalism in data management and increase the value of research data.

The guide leads through the research data lifecycle from planning, organising, documenting, processing, storing and protecting data to sharing and publishing them. Taking the whole roundtrip will take approximately 15 hours.

Particular specialties of the guide is a focus on European diversity (for example in data protection legislation, research ethics, research funder DMP requirements, etc), developing a Data Management Plan as you progress through the guide, and topical expert tips.
