PREVENT RESEARCH DISASTERS THROUGH GOOD DATA MANAGEMENT

  • How much information would you lose if your laptop was stolen?
  • Have you ever emailed your colleague a file named ‘final_final_versionEDITED’?
  • Do you know what your funder expects you to do with your research information?

As a researcher, you will encounter research data in many forms, ranging from measurements, numbers and images to documents and publications.

Whether you create, receive or collect this information, you will need to organise it.

Managing digital information properly is a complex issue. Doing it correctly from the start could save you a lot of time and hassle when preparing a publication or writing up your thesis.

In this interactive workshop the topics covered will be:

  • Strategies for backing up your computer
  • Strategies for naming and organising your files
  • Strategies for file exchange with collaborators
  • Funder requirements for making your digital information (or data) available

Open to PhD students in HASS subjects.
