Introduction to Research Data Management

March 22, 2023 at 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM

Audience:Current Students

The Tri-Agency (CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC) has composed a Statement of Principles on Digital Data Management. It states that “high-quality data management is fundamental to research excellence.” So, it is important for researchers to understand what is meant by Research Data Management (RDM). This workshop will give you an overview of RDM and how you will benefit from it.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Define the key components of Research Data Management (RDM).
  2. Relate your research to a process known as a Research Data Management Plan (RDMP).
  3. Create a Research Data Management Plan.

Workshop leader: Jane Fry, Data Services Librarian, MacOdrum Library

Intended audience: Anyone who will be doing research and collecting data, either quantitative or qualitative. This workshop is intended for current members of the Carleton community.

All graduate students are welcome. If you are working as a TA, this session counts toward voluntary paid training hours, provided that you are working as a TA in the term when the training takes place.
