All researchers create research data, from the database you've set up for your PhD, to your extensive collection of references, to more complex and extensive projects.

As researchers you have two choices:

A. Do you want to ensure that your research data gets the attention and validation it deserves over time? Do you want to make sure that it is safe, accessible and shareable as a valued resource for as long as possible?

B. Or would you rather it disappeared, became corrupted and was never used again with little or no opportunity for reuse and academic recognition of your research?

If you choose the former then we strongly recommend that you attend this FREE workshop.

We will cover issues such as why researchers need to bother about best practice in relation to managing their research data to ensure access over time.

Case studies: The good, the bad and the ugly of the research data in relation to ensuring that it is accessible over time.
Quick wins: Some simple things you can do to make sure your data lasts
Tools: Things that can do these things.
