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.

Administrative processes, Development of guidance and training begun

We have been working on finalising our propsals and recommendations for the administrative processes strand of our project. Our objective was  to develop suitable processes, infrastructure and guidance in keeping with the culture and administrative processes of the university and which fulfill the needs of UWE researchers.

The process proposals and recommendations were presented to and favourably received by the project steering group meeting on 24th October. We will now move on to gaining full UWE acceptance which requires piloting the proposals through the meetings of several research committees.

We have begun to develop our online guidance for researchers basing this on our evaluation of the Incremental, DATUM for health and MANTRA guidance and training outputs.
