We all know that Research Data Management (RDM) is one of the essential areas of responsible conduct of research don’t we!
We also know that it provides a framework that supports researchers and their data throughout the course of their research and beyond. Right?
But did you know that the University recently launched a suite of services to support Edinburgh researchers with research data management tasks? See: http://datablog.is.ed.ac.uk/2014/08/29/dealing-with-data-conference-rdm-service-launch/
The launch of the IS-led RDM Services is the culmination of work detailed in the RDM Roadmap which began in earnest in August 2012 following approval of the RDM Policy by the University Court in May 2011.
RDM programme staff will be in the Pop-up library space on the first floor of the Main Library on Monday 29 September (2pm-4pm) to answer any questions you may have about our services including:
A free web-based tool to help researchers write data management plans for
funded-grant applications – https://dmponline.dcc.ac.uk/
- Data Share:
A free-at-point-of-use data repository to allow University researchers to upload,
share, and license their data resources for online discovery and re-use by others –
A free online course for researchers who manage digital data as part of a research
500 GB free active storage allocation for all research staff and PG research students
