Research Data Management: Workshop (for GSLS PhD students)

Fri 11 Nov 2016



  • How much data would you lose if your laptop was stolen?
  • Have you ever emailed your colleague a file named 'final_final_versionEDITED'?
  • Do you know what your funder expects you to do with your research data?

As a researcher, you will encounter research data in many forms, ranging from measurements, numbers and images to documents and publications.

Whether you create, receive or collect this information, you will need to organise it.

Managing digital information properly is a complex issue. Doing it correctly from the start could save you a lot of time and hassle when preparing a publication or writing up your thesis.

Target audience
  • PhD students in the Graduate School of Life Sciences
  • Further details regarding eligibility criteria are available

Number of sessions: 1
