Bodleian iSkills: Managing Social Science research data

Good research data management is a vital component of academic practice. Part of this is the principle that the data used to develop the arguments and outcomes of your research should, where possible, be effectively stored, preserved and usable. This session introduces the University’s research data policy and outlines the practical impact this will have on the work of researchers. Some of the tools in preparation to meet the requirements will be outlined, as well as services that are already available. This session is not only essential during your DPhil but will be invaluable if you plan to continue in research as a career.
