Research data management, publication and collaboration webinar, Mar 2018
Webinar date: 1pm SAST, 27 March 2018
Research data management, publication and collaboration: Insights from the ROER4D project webinar by University of Cape Town.
How do researchers develop their data curation skills in order to participate in the emerging field of data management and sharing, and do so in an ethical, legal way?
In this presentation, Michelle Willmers and Thomas King from the Research on Open Educational Resources for Development (ROER4D) project will share their experiences and insights around curating and publishing data in a large-scale Global South networked project. Focusing on the increasing importance of data-sharing mandates and funder requirements around data management as well as the personal and collaborative benefits of data stewardship, the presentation will focus on practical strategies for improving data management practice in qualitative and quantitative contexts.
The session will provide researchers with guidelines on how to undertake data management planning in the research scoping and grant proposal stages, and how to prepare data for publication and reuse.
We encourage you to engage with some of the curated resources linked to this event before the session. While the findings of the project is not the focus of discussion, these are likely to be of interest to those with a shared interest in research on OERs in the global south.
