Launch of CESSDA online expert tour guide on research data management

Many members of the Consortium of European Social Science Data Archives (CESSDA ERIC) host workshops on how to manage, store, organise, document and publish data for researchers in the social sciences. Recently, the CESSDA online Research Data Management (RDM) expert tour guide was launched, which is an online tutorial based on the archives’ experiences when engaging with researchers in their workshops.

When it comes to RDM, many sources of information exist, but researchers often need to comply with specific requirements, e.g. related to funders, national legislation and common practices within their particular domain.

The tutorial provides guidance specifically for researchers in the social sciences throughout all stages of their research, taking into account discipline-specific context (e.g. privacy issues, data documentation). The guide also features practical examples and checklists. The project has sought input from researchers from the beginning and invites feedback from users.

Additional information is available in the announcement: CESSDA launches online data management guide with expert advice on all stages of the research data life cycle.
