Research data management (RDM) are processes applied throughout the lifecycle of a research project to guide the collection, documentation, storage, sharing, and preservation of research data. It is important because it helps organize your research data during and after your research cycle and makes responsibilities clear within research team and during team transitions. Some Tri-Agency (CIHR, NSERC, SSHRC) grants require Research Data Management Plans (DMPs) in their applications.
Research Commons is now offering bite-size workshops “Data Bites” that are 30 minutes each during lunch time. By going through our interactive and hands-on mini-workshops, you will learn the basics of RDM from the following core components:
- File naming
- File formats
- Creating a README file
- Directory Structures
- Deposit to UBC Dataverse Collection
- Create Data Management Plans
You can find and sign up for scheduled Data Bites workshops here.
This workshop series was developed by Billie Hu and Eugene Barsky.
