Researcher KnowHow Workshops

Research Data Management and anonymisation

Online Webinar
2:30 pm - 3:30 pm / Wednesday 24th June 2020

Many research projects require the data they collect to be anonymised if the data are to be shared and used more widely. If this applies to your research, it is important that you plan for the successful anonymisation of data from the start of the project.

This online workshop will introduce you to some of the key factors to consider when organising and anonymising your research data.

Research Data Management and reproducibility

Online Webinar
10:30 am - 11:30 am / Tuesday 7th July 2020

Managing your data, having clear objectives about what you want to do with your data at the end of a project, and aiming to be as transparent as you can in your research process are all aspects of good research practice and essential to any future sharing of your data with others.

This workshop will show you how good research data management can help you ensure your research is accessible to, and reproducible by, other researchers. By the end of the session you will have a good idea of how you can address reproducibility issues in your research and plan for the successful sharing of your research data.

This project will consider the effects of incentives (drivers and motivators) in the research system on researcher behaviour in the context of research integrity, how these incentives are perceived by different stakeholders and the impact of these incentives on researcher behaviour and organisational practices more broadly. The study involves a number of research workshops between July and October and a large-scale researcher survey in the autumn."
