Free workshop: Best practices for documenting social sciences research data

Best practices for documenting social sciences research data

18 June 2024, 10.00 – 11.30

Data documentation is essential to make sure that well-organised and well-documented research data can be produced from our research projects. This workshop provides an overview of different types of documentation depending on data type (e.g. primary or secondary, survey or transcripts), as an essential part of implementing good data management in research projects, with a focus on optimising data sharing.

In this session we will explore the following:

  • The critical role of data documentation in research integrity and data sharing, for both current and future research projects.
  • How to develop comprehensive documentation for various data types, incorporating practical examples and templates that can be adapted to your projects.
  • An overview of metadata: what it is, its importance in making your data discoverable and understandable, and the standards to follow for effective data sharing.

During this free 90-minute online workshop, participants will learn the foundational principles and practical strategies for creating robust data documentation that enhances the accessibility, usability, and longevity of research data. Effective documentation is not a one-size-fits-all process; it varies significantly across different types of data and the workshop is tailored to address these nuances, ensuring researchers can apply best practices relevant to their specific data types.
