Managing Data @Melbourne launched

Managing Data @Melbourne the University’s new research data management training program for graduate researchers has been launched.

Consisting of six short modules, the program outlines the fundamental practices of good data management and guides participants through the process of writing a data management plan for their research project. The program is tailored for University of Melbourne-specific needs and includes videos featuring Melbourne researchers and graduate students.

The program covers topics such as: organising and naming data; documenting data (metadata); data storage and security; data file formats; data management plans; policies and legal frameworks; privacy, confidentiality and research data integrity; data sharing and digital preservation.

While all graduate research students are enrolled in the Managing Data @Melbourne LMS community, program enrolment is open to university staff and students and external guests.
