Research Data Management


An online training course to help disseminate good practice in research data management developed at the University of Edinburgh is now free to use by PhD students, early career researchers and digital data users at all UK universities. The non-credit, free online course has interactive units focused on key concepts of data management including video clips of senior academics talking about data management challenges. There are also practical exercises in handling data in four software packages widely used by researchers in different fields, which learners can download and work through at their own pace.
