Research Active Staff (RAS): Research Data Management - Tools for Data Management

(A collaboration between IT Services and the Library with Student Career and Skills and Learning and Development Centre - RAS ).

As a researcher, you will encounter research data in many forms, ranging from observations, measurements and surveys to images and audio files. There are tools which can help at various points of the data lifecycle.

  • What features are important in collaboration websites?
  • How do I evaluate a selection of tools related to research data?
  • What tools are available at Warwick?

Research Data Management (RDM) is important for the success of a research project and is becoming increasingly important with major funding bodies, including RCUK, the Wellcome Trust and Horizon 2020. This session will focus on tools that can be used to support research at each stage of the research data lifecycle. This will include tools for data management planning, data collection and analysis and to support the creation of data documentation. The session will include time to discuss specific questions about the tools or about your research and what tools may be available to help answer your research questions.

Who is it for?
University of Warwick Research Active Staff (staff on Research-focussed, Teaching-focussed and Research & Teaching contracts) and PhD Students.

Workshop Objectives

By the end of the session you will have a greater understanding of a range of tools available to support your data management practice and planning as well as where to find help if needed.

What is required to benefit from this?
A willingness to learn and a research project to consider
