Introduction to Research Data Management

This workshop will introduce the main concepts of RDM, including the research data life cycle, Tri-Council requirements, as well as supports and services offered at UBC. The course will then introduce learners to a mock project and dataset arranged in a file hierarchy with poorly named folders and files, and go through a hands on exercise to clean the structure and file names following best practices.

Office hours to support this workshop will be held on Friday, 02 October. Please register in advance.

Susan Atkey is a Humanities and Social Sciences Librarian at UBC Library, working with Linguistics, Anthropology, Hispanic Studies, and Central & Eastern European Studies. Her Research Data Management focus is on the management of language and linguistics research data. She is a member of the Research Data Alliance (RDA) Linguistics Data Interest Group.

This workshop is part of the RDM Fall Series 2020. The series is designed to be taken as a complete cycle, in order, over a three week period this fall. The sessions will build on one another using a mock research project and data, but we encourage you to bring your own project if you’d like!

These sessions will be presented by the UBC Research Commons, UBC Advanced Research Computing (ARC), the UBC Okanagan Library and the UBC Centre for Scholarly Communications. Follow us on Twitter with the hashtag #UBCRDM2020!
