Best practice in data management
|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.
|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.
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.
|FAIR data management
Video is a talk by Anna Schwickerath (GESIS) on how to make your data findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR).
|Meeting funders’ requirements – archiving and data sharing
YouTube Video: 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. This webinar aims to raise awareness about relevant key data management practices for sharing, specifically regarding data documentation, gaining consent, and data anonymisation. 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.
|Guidelines on FAIR Data Management in Horizon 2020
Guidelines to help researchers make their research data findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR), to ensure sound management. Good research data management is not a goal in itself, but rather the key conduit leading to knowledge discovery and innovation, and to subsequent data and knowledge integration and reuse.
This Train-the-Trainers (TTT) package forms an addition to the CESSDA Data Management Expert Guide which was developed by the CESSDA Training Working Group in 2017 and 2018.
This package contains different materials that trainers can use in developing and giving Research Data Management and Discovery trainings for (social science) researchers.
Materials for instance include workshop outlines, slides and exercises that can be reused and adapted by local RDM trainers. The package contains five different types of materials: Workshop Outlines, Exercises, Presentations, Documents and Handouts, and Images.
|Parthenos - For Trainers - Training Videos
The materials on this web site are intended to assist in bridging that gap, overcoming the general inclination within infrastructure projects to provide only training on tools, rather than finding effective ways to transfer a greater bulk of our experiential knowledge.
These materials are intended for reuse, so please feel free to incorporate them in to your courses and syllabi, or direct your students toward them for further learning. Please apply a CC-BY license when you do reuse them, crediting the PARTHENOS Project and the specific lecturer by name (if a video or slide deck).
This item focuses on the Training Videos that are available through Parthenos.
There are short videos, longer video lectures and webinar videos. Topics include videos on research infrastructures, standards, ontologies, data and metadata, FAIR data, Open Access and many others.
