|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.
|Teaching resource: Interview methods||
This teaching resource provides instructors and students with materials designed to assist in teaching qualitative interviewing.
Interviewing is a frequently used method in social research with its suitability being entirely dependent on the particular research question. Qualitative interviewing is generally distinguished from questionnaire-based interviewing, even if the form of communication, such as face-to face conversation, may be the same.
The resource provides brief summaries of several different interviewing techniques and each summary is accompanied by full transcripts or excerpts and the interview schedule (or guidance notes). It concludes with selected references and practical suggestions for how to use the materials for teaching.
|Teaching resource: Non-interview methods||
This teaching resource provides instructors and students with materials designed to assist in teaching qualitative methods of data collection.
This resource provides brief summaries of some of the different ways in which researchers can collect qualitative data, including focus groups, diaries, online data collection, and visual methods. Each summary is accompanied by an illustrative data sample from the extensive collections held by the UK Data Archive.
