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.
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!
