Looking after your research dataCode: LIB201 , Offered By: Research Study Skills
This workshop will help you to get the most out of your data by keeping it safe and secure, organising, describing, archiving and sharing it, and by augmenting it with pre-existing data from a variety of sources. You will have the opportunity to put what you learn into practice by starting a data management plan for your own research.
Please note: this workshop will not include methods of data analysis or detailed advice on research ethics
