Description

Within the Consortium of European Social Science Data Archives (CESSDA), a lot of knowledge about how to manage, store, organize, document and publish data in the social sciences has been gathered over the years. The CESSDA Data Management Expert Guide (www.cessda.eu/DMGuide) is an online tutorial based on this experience. It combines the data archives’ knowledge from engaging with researchers and answering their questions about Research Data Management (RDM). The guide is based on the research data life cycle and can be used by individual researchers as self-study but may also be used as part of an online or face to face workshop on research data management. Currently a new version of the train-the-trainer package is developed. It contains workshop outlines, group exercises, tips for RDM trainers, presentations and other materials developed alongside the guide. When it comes to RDM, many sources of information exist and finding exactly the information you need can be a challenge. The CESSDA Data Management Expert Guide was designed to provide a comprehensive overview of all relevant aspects of data management within one online environment. The CESSDA Data Management Expert Guide provides guidance for social scientists throughout all stages of their research while taking into account the diversity of the specific requirements that scientists may have to deal with. The guide features practical examples and checklists for additional hands-on guidance. In addition, the guide provides information for creating and adapting a data management plan in the various stages of the research project, taking into account relevant issues within the social sciences (e.g. privacy issues, data documentation). With this poster we would like to introduce you to the online CESSDA Data Management Expert Guide and show how it can facilitate social science researchers to manage, organize and share their data. Based on the response from data supporters in other disciplines, this guide can be of help outside the social sciences.
