Medicine: Research Data Management
New


Description

There is an increasing emphasis in research on the management and sharing of data. Many funding bodies that support research undertaken at Cambridge require not only open access to any publications based on that research, but also to the data underlying it. This course will help you understand funders’ requirements for management and sharing of research data, and will provide opportunities to create your own data management plan and test out resources that will make the data management process easier.

Participants will need to bring their own laptop or tablet. If you cannot bring your own device, please contact librarytraining@medschl.cam.ac.uk.
