Over the last few years, research data and its good management have become increasingly important. Proper data management and publication of research data is often required by funding bodies (e.g., the SNSF or EC) as well as journals. It ensures reproducibility, it facilitates reuse by other researchers and paves the way for automated analysis and text mining. Articles containing data on average receive about 25% more citations. Moreover, as professionals, researchers can no longer risk the loss of a dataset, nor the confusion over the way they obtained their results. Research Data Management (RDM) enhances the necessary, transversal skills to boost and improve research outputs, while fostering collaborations. Whether researchers' interest lies in the challenges of digital humanities or the advancements of machine learning, for a career in academia or in industry, they need to be equally aware of the recent developments in RDM and ready to provide the data that underpin their analyses and research results.
This workshop will provide the participants with the essential knowledge and concrete examples to tackle these requirements and to manage the entire data life cycle covering both qualitative and quantitative research.
