|Meeting Funders’ Requirements - Archiving and Data Sharing||
This introductory webinar is for anyone who is involved in the collection of data and is considering making (some of) their data available in accordance with funders’ requirements. More and more funders are requiring that research data be made available after completion of the research project, usually through the archiving of data in a trusted repository. However, research teams often still lack the appropriate skills and knowledge regarding how to properly prepare their data for archiving and sharing. This webinar aims to raise awareness about relevant key data management practices for sharing, specifically regarding data documentation, gaining consent, and data anonymisation. Addressing each of these three topics, it provides a short theoretical introduction, including what FAIR means and how it is implemented, as well as practical illustrations drawing on a large-scale cross-national survey (the European Social Survey). It also provides some practical tips with respect to data archiving, in particular how to choose an appropriate archive or repository.
DDI-Codebook is a more light-weight version of the standard, intended primarily to document simple survey data. Originally DTD-based, DDI-C is also available as an XML Schema.
Documentation of a simple study. Basic descriptive content for variables, files, source material, and study level information. Supports discovery, preservation, and the informed use of data.
|Developing and Implementing a Research Data Policy||
This presentation was given as part of the FAIRsFAIR-CODATA-RDA Data Steward Training Series which was held virtually on 11 December 2020 with the National University of Costa Rica.
The session explored issues to be considered when developing Research Data Management policies and related support services. The session aimed to ensure that participants were:
• able to develop realistic and well scoped RDM policies
• aware of free resources that are available to help build capacity for RDM service delivery and support
This presentation was prepared using materials that have been developed and/or adapted by the Digital Curation Centre (DCC). Attributions to reused open content are provided where relevant in the slides.
|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.
