Managing Your Research Data Well 30-Nov-10University of Essex, Room 3.105

This seminar is being held as part of a series of colloquium seminars for University of Essex Sociology Ph.D. students.

The aim of this seminar is to encourage Ph.D. students to adopt good practices in managing their research data. The seminar will offer an overview of data management practices, such as understanding how to apply a standardised format to qualitative transcripts, how to provide context and documentation to research data, how to anonymise quantitative and qualitative data, and consent considerations regarding managing and sharing research data. This will be illustrated with practical examples and case studies. Making researchers aware of such issues at an early stage in their research careers will help in the creation of good quality research data and set the standard for research excellence.
