"Training in how to look after research data"
We provide guidance and training on all aspects of data management and sharing, through web-based and printed advice and workshops.
If you have a query, please get in touch.
Our Managing and Sharing Data: Training Resources are a suite of flexible training materials that can be used to train researchers and research support staff in how to look after research data. You can download them directly from a ZIP file.
The training resources complement the popular guide on Managing and Sharing Data: Best practice for researchers.
Both have been designed and used as part of our daily work in supporting ESRC applicants and award holders.
The training resources are organised in modules that cover the seven key areas of managing and sharing data. Each section contains:
The materials are the ones we use in our own training courses; as such, they are mostly geared towards social scientists. We encourage trainers to create their own personalised and more context-relevant versions, for example by discipline, country, relevant laws and regulations.
We also offer a programme of regular training workshops in many aspects of data management and sharing.
