Controlled Vocabularies and SKOS training at DARIAH Campus

Training module about controlled vocabularies and SKOS. Presentation of how controlled vocabularies can be used for organizing and classifying data and how the resources can be queried, retrieved, analysed and linked to other relevant information objects.

Engaging Researchers with Data Management: The Cookbook.

This handbook on Effective Research Data Management (RDM) is an invaluable collection of 24 case studies, drawn from institutions across the globe, that demonstrate clearly and practically how to engage the research community with RDM. These case studies together illustrate the variety of innovative strategies research institutions have developed to engage with their researchers about managing research data. By interviewing key staff about their experiences and the organisational context, the authors of this book have created an essential resource for organisations looking to increase engagement with their research communities.This handbook is a collaboration by research institutions, for research institutions.

Digital Preservation Handbook

Digital information is increasingly important to our culture, knowledge base and economy. The Handbook, first compiled by Neil Beagrie and Maggie Jones in 2001, is maintained and updated by the DPC. This full revision (the 2nd Edition) has expanded and updated content to cover over 30 major sections (see Contents). The 2nd edition was compiled with input from 45 practitioners and experts in digital preservation under the direction of Neil Beagrie as managing editor and William Kilbride as chair of the Management and Advisory Boards. The Handbook provides an internationally authoritative and practical guide to the subject of managing digital resources over time and the issues in sustaining access to them. It will be of interest to all those involved in the creation and management of digital materials

Latent variable modelling

In the analysis of a cross-national survey such as the European Social Survey (ESS), many research questions naturally involve comparisons between countries. In latent variable modelling, these questions can be formulated as multigroup models where the country of a respondent is treated as an explanatory variable for the latent variables. This allows us to examine differences between countries in the distributions of the latent constructs. Multigroup models can also be used to assess cross-national measurement equivalence, that is whether the measurement of the latent variables by the observed items is comparable across the countries. Such multigroup models are one of the topics of this module.


Analysing cross sectional survey data using linear regression methods: A ‘hands on’ introduction using ESS data’ is by Associate Professor Odd Gåsdal of the Department of Sociology at the University of Bergen. He provides an introduction to some of the basic questions that are relevant when analysing cross sectional survey data using regression methods. Gåsdal has lectured for many years on quantitative research methods in the social sciences.

Title Body
CESSDA Resource Directory

The Directory gathers resources which are already available across various institutional websites. Information on relevant documents, training activities, tools, and support services resulting from past and current CESSDA projects and SP activities have been collected, selected, and reviewed specifically for this purpose. The Resource Directory is therefore a curated inventory of these resources. In order to guide the users within the Directory, specific labels, descriptions, and metadata were applied to index and define the resources. The labels and metadata can be used for a more user-friendly search, allowing easy and rapid access to the resources of interest.
