Managing Research Data: a pilot study in Health and Life Sciences

Interim outputs from work package 3: developing a service now available

Posted by Liz Holliday | 0 Comments

The UWE MRD project releases interim outputs from work package three (Test Cycles) which describe the development of a RDM service at UWE.

Two administrative process flowcharts, pre and post approval, and supporting information outline a process workflow for managing UWE research data during the lifecycle of a research project.

A report 'Metadata and EPrints customisation for the UWE data repository' explains the rationale which guided the development of metadata for the UWE data repository.

Reskilling for Research Data Management : a workshop for academic librarians

Posted by Liz Holliday | 0 Comments

The UWE JISC funded project in the MRD2 Programme is holding a day event : Reskilling for RDM : a workshop for Academic Librarians.

A key element of the UWE project is to share our experience and deliverables with the wider HE communities, with a particular focus on the Library community. The UWE project will look at how Librarians can work alongside researchers to develop their skills and knowledge. We have invited projects from the JISC MRD Train to share their tools that enable skills development for librarians.
This event will be of value to Librarians who liaise with researchers as well as those who support research output repositories, and those who provide the infrastructure of the scholarly communication processes through collections and e-resources management.

The event is free of charge to all attendees. Situated close to rail and motorway links, the University of the West of England is accessible from all parts of the UK.

Full details about the day are available here as is a booking form
