Introduction to Research Data Management for Social Scientists
20-22 March 2013, Cologne, Germany
Target groups: social science researchers working with qualitative or quantitative data (principal Investigators, researchers parts of project teams, individual researchers, and PhD students)
Are any of these questions relevant to you?
– Do you know if your research data is securely stored and backed-up?
– Had troubles with coding and documentation of data?
– Ever lost research data?
– Are you confident you would be able to understand your data sometime in the future?
– Considered sharing your research data to increase the visibility of your work?
– Thought, why would anyone be interested in my research data?
– What to do with your research data after a project?
– Encountered problems working in a collaborative setting (teams, co-authors etc)?
– Need arguments to persuade your institution about the necessity of research data management?
If so, this workshop will be useful. Designed to address the needs of social science researchers, it discusses ways to maintain the security and integrity of research data. It promotes an interactive hands-on approach to looking after your research data and encourages discussion amongst participants on shared problems or experiences as well as the chance to consult with the International Data Infrastructures team at GESIS.
