Bodleian iSkills: Managing research data and Data Management Planning (DMPs) (Wednesday 1 November 14.00-16.00)
Good research data management is a vital component of academic practice. The data used to develop the arguments and outcomes of your research should be effectively stored and managed during a project, preserved for the future and - where possible - shared with other academics. This session introduces the University’s research data policy and outlines the practical impact this will have on your work. The services available at Oxford to assist you will be outlined. This session is not only essential during your current studies but will be invaluable if you plan to continue in research as a career.
Who is this session for? All DPhil students and research staff.
